Boat is a 10 pack with no rinse buckets, which was fine for our group of 10
underwater photographers from the Seattle area. Large rinse barrel on shore
for big DSLR rigs.

After having a serious situation with Club Cantamar (contaminated air, fire
on board without extinguisher, no O2 analyzer), my wife and I spent two
trips to La Paz trying to find a good operator and base of operations for
whale shark, sea lion, and other critter photography and diving.

Buceo Carey is an SSI operator right in the marina at the south end of the
Malecon. Very easy to work with, boat operator was excellent, DM was also
good, but we due to the fact several of us had dived the area previously we
used him very little and dived our own profiles. Would very much recommend

For accommodations we stayed at Posada Luna Sol, which is a five minute
walk to Buceo Carey. Very nice, and close to great restaurants. Mar y
Adventuras is located at the hotel, and I highly recommend them for whale
shark snorkeling in mornings.
