I just did my advanced diver course with Gilberto at Carey. He is a great instructor, we finished the course with more confidence and ability than we would have expected from such a short course. We did several dives with Carey after the course was finished. The staff is great, they were friendly, informative and genuine. The dive masters are top notch. We dove a lot with Rudolpho his knowledge of the reef and his ability to call fish in was a huge bonus. If you want to dive with small groups and good people, I highly recommend this place. It's a class act all the way.
Thanks Gilberto, We will miss you guys.

Have used Carey for the last 2 years in Isla. Great little shop. Small groups and very good dive master to diver ratio. Highly recommend Carey Dive and the great crew there.

I highly recommend this little gem. I did two weeks of diving with them bringing a group of four divers/snorkelers that all had individual needs, all were on different levels. The staff made sure we all got a fantastic experience by being flexible to meet our different schedules. I did an upgrade from OW to AOW and was really impressed with Gilberto's teaching skills. Chose this shop if you are looking for highly professional divers with equipment in mint condition to guide you to a safe and fun time under water.
