Very slow diving which allowed plently of time to stop and get the shot I
was looking for without feeling rushed. Numerous shots of juvenile
seahorses and other tiny critters.

My wife and I have made 12 trips to Cozumel in the past three years and
this was the fourth time that we have used Living Underwater. Jeremy
Anschel formerly the divemaster for LU has been the owner of the operation
for the past four months.

The personal attention from boat cushions to cold water, to fresh fruit was
extremely nice. The big towels and dry parkas were quite welcome. All of
our gear was rinsed and laid out the next morning. There was no packing
gear back to the hotel. 

Our average bottom time on ten dives was 1hr and 20 minutes with the
longest being 1hr 33 minutes. As we were veteran divers with LU we we asked
how deep we wanted to go and was usually 100 to 120 feet with the second
dive in the 70 foot range. All diving was done with 95 or 120 low pressure
2400 steel tanks. Excellent fills and very slow diving.

The boat holds a maximum of eight divers. On two days there were only two
of us diving and on three days there were three addtional divers.

We saw over a half a dozen spotted eagle rays and numerous turtles during
five days of diving.
