Room was very large enabeling me to wash my U/W video housing, lights and
gear adequately.  Small kitchenette with room offered more than sufficient
room for recharging batteries and maintenance.  Balcony offerd a table,
chairs and a long wall rack for drying any and all dive gear and camera

The good is that Jeremy is now the new owner of the dive operation. 
Previously, he had worked for the owner, Oracio.  There is no one in the
Caribbean that comes close to his operation.  It starts with 120's that
last for ever underwater. He offers towels to all divers and warm,
soft,long dive jackets for the whole time you are on board along with
fruit, cookies plus plain and flavored water.  Jeremy sets up all gear and
cares for it at the end of the day. Dives generally last well over 1 hour
with the large tanks and the jackets are a welcomed sight during the
surface interval.  I dove with a 3 mil suit and the next time I will be
diving with a 5 mil.  The dives are long and wonderful but chills came in
for me especially durning the 2nd dive.  Predive briefings were great,
explained well so all were in agreement and understood.  Went out of his
way to show both the large and the small found U/W.  Used an U/W writer to
question and explain to the divers what they were seeing.  Lots of eagle
rays, great turtles and great interaction with 1 nurse shark in particular.
 The boat is small with a max of 3-7 divers but still enough room for a
camera rinse tank. He always asked "how can I make this dive
experience better for you".  The diving and service with Jeremy and
" Living Underwater" doesn't get any better than this no matter
where you go.
