I loved Jeremy's outfit!!!!! I loved loved loved his crew, boat, and the
way he ran his business.  The boat was the fastest on the island and we
buzzed around from dive site to dive site in minutes. It was fun blowing
past the other dive boats. The crew was very professional, handled the boat
extremely well, kept an eye on us but kept a safe distance for our surface.
 They chose nice beaches and facilities for our surface intervals.  The
night dive was awesome.  Little crowded, but we just hung back and had a
great dive.  There was usually 3-4 of us diving, but we had 8 on the night
dive.  Only regret- not getting more dives in and at least one more night
dive.  I could do that night dive every day.  The DMs were quick to point
things out and especially Jeremy with the small critters like sea horses. 
Also, they were extremely mindful of the environment and went out of their
way to do their part in ridding the coral of lionfish by capturing them in
their fishnets and killing them and then disposing of them properly so they
do not just float in the water and be a risk to divers and other fish. 
They got about 8 of the suckers while we dove over the course of 15 dives. 
Overall, I give them a 10 out of 10- one of the best dive operations I've
ever dived with.  And, because they had such a fast boat, we got to dive
sites that 90% of the operations don't because it takes too long to get
there.  And, they picked us up at our dock, on time, every day. That is a
big bonus
