Carey Dive Center

Carey Dive Center is owned and operated by Gilberto Pat Hoil, PADI and NAUI Dive Instructor. Gilberto has been diving in the waters around Isla Mujeres since he was 15 years old. Since becoming a dive instructor in 1996, Gilberto has certified thousands of students from around the world. “My students often return to dive with me,” says Gilberto. “And many go on to become dive instructors, because they enjoyed their first experience of diving so much.”

Carey Dive Center is one of the biggest dive shops on the island with a full team of professional staff offering a reliable service. It has a comfortable classroom for dive students, wet area to wash and store dive equipment, showers and lockers. The center is fully equipped with top quality scuba equipment and wetsuits in all sizes. We also have our own compressor for filling tanks.

Offer Of The Month

Underwater Museum

For a uniquely different snorkelling or diving experience, we can take you to visit artist Jason deCaires Taylors spectacular underwater sculpture garden. The museum is designed to attract people away from the much-visited Manchones Reef, to give it a well-earned break so the coral and marine life can regenerate. The 400 life-sized figures in the underwater museum are based on real people from Puerto Morelos and Cancun. Created in 2009, new sculptures are constantly being added to this ambitious project, so look out for the latest arrivals, including a retro VW Beatle car and a man munching on a hamburger in front of a TV.

$70 USD: one tank scuba trip
(plus $10 USD equipment hire)
$45 USD: snorkeling trip
