Comments This is an add-on report to my Cozumel report from Feb/Mar 2019. We dove with Cozumel Marine World for most of the week, but one day we took off and went out with Careyitos Advanced Divers. For experienced divers who want to really see Cozumel without hassles, this is an excellent choice. Although their boats are not fast (45-60 minute ride to the dive site), they catered to advanced divers. We did two 180-foot dives using back gas of air with a stage bottle of Nitrox and it was a completely different experience from the normal "stay with me and don't get lost" attitude you have on Cozumel diving.

The boat is adequate for 8-10 divers, which seems to be about all they will take at a time. Facilities for UWP were great with a large tank for rinsing.

A second bonus to "dive your own profile in Cozumel" was lunch---freshly prepared food between dives was a nice and welcome touch.

Advanced divers looking for something more personalized and interesting along with a chance to really take a long deep dive (our shortest total was 75 minutes) on Cozumel's interesting reefs should look up Careyitos.

We have been diving with Careyitos for the last 15 years. You will not find any better operator in Cozumel or anywhere else for that matter. Also, lunch is fantastic. Simone does an excellent job leading dives and making sure you have a great dive.
