The Jewfish had a rinse bucket and the crew was very helpful in handling
camera equipment in and out of the water.

We had done a lot of research before arriving for our first dive trip to
Cozumel, looking for a dive operation that would best fit our needs. 
Living Underwater more than met our expectations.  The boat was fast and
well equipped with no more than 6 divers.  One day we had a newly certified
diver, so Jeremy (the owner/operator) brought along another dive master to
look after the rest of the group while he worked with the new diver and
made her comfortable underwater.  Both dive masters were excellent in
pointing out things and very thorough in their briefing.  The crew was the
best we have ever experienced.  They took very good care of all the divers
from handling equipment to greeting each diver with a dry towel upon
boarding the boat after each dive and then if needed a fleece-lined jacket,
as well as water, fruit and other snacks.  We would spend our surface
intervals on shore, either at a beach or hotel where we could take a potty
break, buy food/drink and relax before the 2nd dive. We were never rushed
and could really enjoy every dive.  LU picks up from different hotel docks
from the cruise dock and south.  LU does both South and North dive sites
depending on conditions.  Very safety minded, service minded, friendly and
excellent operation!
