This was our first trip with Jerome's Living Underwater.  The company has
its roots with Aldora Divers who we dove with our last 5 trips.  They cost
more than almost all dive operations in Cozumel and for good reason!
Fast boats!  Small groups with the max being 6 divers.  High service level
of Jerome and his captains.  They set up all your gear and store it
overnight.  Cozy long jackets for service intervals.  Fresh fruit and
cookies and water for service interval and after dive.  Jerome is a
wonderful divemaster!  He is very safety concious, a super small critter
finder and highly customer oriented.
You get more bottom time with Living Underwater than any other operator on
the island because of the steel 120 tanks and mandatory computers.  He also
took us to the north end of the island.  After 6 trips to Cozumel this was
the first time we had been there. We had tried every trip but most
operators won't take you.  We saw the Eagle Ray migration there!  
This operation is not for beginer divers but for experienced divers that
want their every wish to come true.
