The people who work in this dive shop are all very nice. However, we did feel a bit rushed. We didn't have time to properly check our material and the refresher course we had was very short. I felt like my tank was not attached properly but when I mentioned this I didn't really get a reply. However, as soon... More

I did a two tank dive with Carey divers. We were only tree people in the group and they were very effective, so we headed out really quickly which made us the first boat out in the morning. We went to MUSA and the Gardens, and saw stingrays, turtles and lobsters. I would recommend diving with these guys! The staff... More

As beginners, we originally planned to just dive for a day to get the experience. But it was so much fun that we ended up going back the next day. All the staffs were friendly and professional. They patiently explained us all the skills necessary to be safe and be able to have fun under the sea. Gilberto always gave... More

I picked this dive center for a couple of reasons. First, it was highly recommend on this Trip Advisor site. Second, they only have small groups. We had four divers plus the dive master total. I very much prefer small groups to some of the large cattle car operations. We really enjoyed our dives with Carey Dive shop. They were... More

Myself and my son and eldest daughter and son (14 and 12) got our PADI here over three mornings. Its a nice little basic shop and basic boat and for smaller groups so we felt safe and cared about. Gilberto was patient, responsive and great from making first contact before we arrived, to doing the course, diving at the various... More

We did the PADI Open Water Dive course (min. 3 days) and it was just great. I was very scared in the beginning to go under water, but Gilberto took all that fear from me. He is highly skilled, friendly caring and unexcited in what he is doing so you trust him right away. He was emphatic, without overindulging too... More

I upgraded my PADI Scuba Diver licence to OWD with Carey. They were helpful, sympathetic professionals, and I had great time diving with them.

My dad and I went on 6 dives (over 3 days) with Carey Dive Center on our last trip. The whole experience was fantastic. The dive center was a short and easy walk from our hotel. They also have lockers and showers so you can store your equipment in between dives which is very covenant. The shop owner Gilberto was... More
