Comments Jeremy Anschel runs a fast boat with usually no more than six divers on board. His operation is equipped to deal with any equipment failure or injury. Mr. Anschel is most receptive to constructive criticism for future dives, as well as being open to suggested dive sites. Having been to Cozumel four times, I can tell you that Mr. Anschel's operation is "primo". His preparation and execution leave nothing to be desired. You will never touch your gear - Mr. Anschel and his boat crew handle everything, from your first dive to your last - very much like the dive operators in the South Pacific. Towels, fruit, water after each dive, along with a surface interval on shore where you can "food up". Mr. Anschel's operation is prompt, reliable, and fun. He wants you to have fun, and he succeeds at it.
