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,
