Comments As always, diving with Jeremy Anschel and Living Underwater was a fine example of great service and value. Steel 90 and 120 cf tanks make for long bottom times for me and my wife, and Jeremy always finds great creatures small and large. He picks up our gear at the hotel the night we arrive, and each dive day it is ready on the boat for us. His custom-made boat is designed for diving comfort and up to eight divers. Radio, oxygen, life jackets and other safety equipment are always clearly visible. There are cushions, fruit and cookies, water and soda, fresh towels, and parkas. Our eight dives on this trip averaged 80 minutes per dive, so the value of paying a little more for extended dives is definitely worth it. Boat captain Francisco and crew man Ricardo were competent and helpful. Tanks were always filled properly to the recommended limit, and Nitrox users on the boat attested to mix accuracy. Surface intervals were at available piers and beach resorts. Jeremy is an excellent instructor and a safe guide, respectful always to the undersea environment. We have dived with numerous other services on Cozumel, but we have used and trusted Living Underwater for the past 8 years. Joe and Kathy Stommel, Pueblo, Colorado, joerunr@comcast.net
