Comments Living Underwater is a top notch operation. Jeremy runs a first class operation for small groups.

Our dive experience started out with Jeremy coming out to the house on Saturday afternoon to meet everyone and pick up our equipment. Our group consists of 3 couples and Jeremy takes the time to find out each of our levels, experience and interest. He offered to pick up at the house but we opted to drive the short 5 minutes to the marina. Dive days consisted of a reef deep dive usually on the South side of the island followed by a drift dive further north. Instructions were clearly given and dives were a hour+. Safety is always stressed and the boat is equipped with 02, and first aide equpiment. Fresh fruit, snacks, soda and water were offered throughout the day. Breaks were spent at a local beach club where you could purchase breakfast or drinks, (good lemonade), fesh showers or just catch some rays.

Fresh towels and fleece lined jackets were provided for each diver and these came in handy on the one day storms greeted us on the completion of our second dive. (We are now purchasing these jackets for future trips)

Reef dives consisted of numerous swim throughs, walls. tropicals, corals and sponges. The mine sweeper wreck was enjoyable with penetration from front to back. This was our groups first experience with brisk drift diving and Jeremy did a great job orienting and coaching the group.

The boat crew did an excellent job and are extremely personable. There was no language barrier.

If we could bring Jeremy and his crew on future travels we would in a second.
