Comments 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 them.

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.
