We had a lot of fun diving with Buceo Carey! They have great dive guides, who are very friendly, helpful and informative about the island etc. They dive in small groups which is great and sets them apart from other dive centres! We were only a group of four people with one dive guide and we had a wonderful time.... More

I highly recommend diving with their Japanese dive guide Chin. He knows how to fit you well with a wet suit, weigh you properly with weights, and repair your first stage on the boat. He helped me with all of these tasks very quickly and efficiently. He setup all my equipment on the boat and even assisted me with my... More

My wife, 6 year old daughter and I went for the Deluxe Combo package to snorkel with sea lions, spend an hour on a stunning secluded beach to have lunch and then go snorkeling with a whale shark (it was a "small one" at only 4.5 metres long but beautiful, easily big enough and a wonderful experience. Captain Javier and... More

I contacted several diving centers in La Paz, and ended up choosing Buseo Carey because of their professional feedback, and the fact that they limit the number of people on the boat. I was not disappointed: the staff handles everything in a very professional and kind manner (including the necessary paperwork and payment). We ended up being 3 divers, doing... More

We (myself, wife and 21 year old daughter) were spending 2 weeks in Cabo SL during spring break (March 2016) and took a couple of days in La Paz to decompress, do the whale shark tour and do a couple of dives. We chose BC because of TA reviews even though they were a touch more expensive than the competition.... More

These guys are by far the best snorkeling and diving guides in La Paz. In the past 2 years, my family has visited La Paz twice, the last time largely because of the fantastic experiences shared by the people at Carey. Request Javier and Chin (Sheen) as your guide/captain for the day (or in our case, 10 days)! We can't... More

So here’s the bottom line: If you're a diver, don’t go to La Paz in February. We were only able to dive two of the five planned days because high winds messed with the port and the seas. But the good news is when you do go to La Paz, you’d find yourself spoiled and pampered by these folks. We... More
