Living Underwater and Jeremy with his crew are the best dive operation I
have seen. In fact I have not seen anyone else close to this operation. The
boat is specifically designed for divers and brand new. It is slightly
wider and he will only take a max of eight divers - we never dove with more
than 6. Every design feature of the boat from the tank racks, to the
non-slip surface, boat length shade with convenient storage nets is
specifically built for divers. Jeremy is very flexible, but if  you will
let him handle your gear like a Four Seasons, he'll take it the night
before your first dive, wash and assemble it each day so when you arrive on
the boat you just need to have a fruit drink and roll in. Dives are deep
and long at whatever site you desire including out of the way dives. He
goes out early so your first dive is without a crowd. Only computer diving
and being safe is the only rule and you are responsible, although he is
around to help. Great in depth dive briefings. You go to beach clubs for a
gas off in between dives, where pools, hot tubs and food are available.
Jeremy is great underwater at finding small critters and out of the way
corals. We also saw dolphins off Punta Sur. This is the best dive operation
I've ever seen. We had dove for 10  years in Cozumel with another operation
that we loved and I can't see ever diving with them again. Living
Underwater has ruined 90% of other dive operations for us, because from the
boat to the crew these guys make you feel like you are rediscovering diving
service the way it should be. El Cantil is a little pricey, but the place
to stay if you like to be near San Miguel for the food in the barrio and
not tied down to an all inclusive, plus it is really luxurious, clean, with
great service and spectacular view. Great for little kids.
