Comments Living Underwater exceeded my most demanding expectations. I made a trip about 6 months ago with Aldora and while that was very good, LU was even better. Jeremy the divemaster could not have been more professional. There were only two divers on the boat for the three days that I was there. Each day brought the same questions, "where would you like to go; what whould you like to see and do." It mattered not where we wanted to go and what type of dive, he was there to accomodate us. As a divemaster, he was very concerned that we dive safely. However, he was willing to do dive profiles that other operations would never let you do. The 120 cubic foot tanks were great. Our bottom time never was less than an hour, even at depths of greater than 120 feet. We went to dive sites north and as far south as Punta Sur.

Jeremy took care of all of the equipment on a daily basis. He took the equipment back with the boat after dropping us off and it returned the next day washed and dried. Post diving a towel was handed to us. If someone was extra cold, parkas were provided. Snacks were given as well as sodas or water. LU was very prompt about arriving on time. None of the usual "Mexican time problems." If I have to drag my lazy self out of bed to meet the dive boat at 8:00AM, I expect the boat to be there at 8:00AM as well.

One thing I would change about Living Underwater is during the booking process, they do not have the ability to take credit cards. They ask you to send a check for the deposit. I am not used to business that do not take cards.


PLG was pretty good. We had two different rooms and one was cleaner and had been taken care of much better.
