Comments We stayed at the Fiesta Americana, but dove the entire week with Jeremy.Fast boat great Captain eager to please,got to best dive sites before other boats arrived.Did the Devils Throat 3 times at divers request. Helped clean some of the corals that were choked with sand. Jeremy always would find the best dive sites away from crowds, was not afraid to take you on more advanced dives if you could show good skills.All dives were over 1 hour since he uses 100 cf tanks, helped a lot with people who use alot of air. Entire group commented that Jeremy made diving Cozumel extraordinary,would come back to dive with him any time.Best dive operator I have ever been with!. Fish population in Cozumel has decreased compared to previous trip in 2000,corals have also been impacted possibly by large number of cruise ships visiting daily. Recovery after a large Hurricane was remarkable.
