I arranged diving with Jeremy Anschel of Living Underwater. But, as he was
full on some dive days, he recommended Liquid Blue Divers in less than a
heart beat. Michaela Velasco runs the operation but has a crew that runs
the dives.  Theyre fantastic!  They are friendly, safe and experienced
crew and guides. She runs the smaller fast boats that are great for getting
you to and from the dive sites quickly.  We had about an 8AM pickup and I
usually had lunch with my wife by 12:30.

Living Underwater uses the large steel tanks that provide extra negative
buoyancy so you can dive with less weight. The currents were particularly
strong the week I was there (last week of Jan). The extra weight from the
larger tanks helped to stabilize the drift. For those who know about
Cozumel, the sea life is fantastic.  We only saw one black tip shark (about
8-9 feet). My fellow divers let me know that they first saw the shark
swimming up to me with my back turned. I probably didnt need that
surprise!

Ive written a separate review of Living Underwater for readers who would
like a view of another operator.  The diving with Jeremy and Michaela was
seamless. The ease and quality of diving with both was fantastic. For those
looking for operators in Cozumel, diving with either Liquid Blue or Living
Underwater will be a winner.
