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.
