Comments Carey Dive Center is one of the best we have used. Small groups 4 to 6 people. Often lets you decide where you want to go. Very acoomodating and freindly. We have been using them for 8+ years. Seem like family.
The diving is mainly shallow dives with patch reefs on the side of the island facing Cancun. Also has the underwater museum (sculptures) that is very interresting and makes for some good photos. The east and north side have deeper dives with varied bottom sturctures. There are a few wrecks. Lots of turtles. Night dives are pretty good.
