Comments Dove with them while visiting for a day on a cruise ship. They were extremely helpful accommodating our schedule (we didn't really want to go with the trip offered by the cruise ship, had heard mixed things about it and the cruise company was difficult about the fact that my son was Junior Open Water certified). Best day boat I have ever been on. Jeremy Anschel has set up an extraordinary operation. The office doesn't look like much but his boat is a thing of beauty, every little detail thought through and every item fitted together like a watch's mechanism. No more than eight divers (on our trip there were six of us with four crew including Jeremy). Boat is very fast (we flew past every other dive boat), and extremely comfortable (rubber tiles on the floor, waterproof cushions on the seat to counter gunwale-but, shade canopy covering pretty much the whole boat with elastic netting under it to store dry items, and too many other clever touches to recount). Diving was as good as it gets on Cozumel and both Jeremy and the other guide on our trip, Sergio, did an outstanding job keeping tabs on my recently certified 11 year old son and pointing out critters large and small. Sergio even managed to catch and dispatch a lion fish which he then fed to a lucky triggerfish. Can't recommend these guys highly enough. I wouldn't dive with anyone else on Cozumel in future (have visited the island before).
