Comments Having just returned from a week of diving with Jeremy and Living Underwater, I can highly recommend this diveop to anyone looking for a valet diving experience in Cozumel.

He operates a spacious shaded,fast boat with twin outboards, and a maximum diver number of eight. This means no crowding on the boat. O2 safety equipment, life vests, and radio were present, and the boat was kept in a neat, tidy, and clean condition. Above head storage netting kept those items you wished to remain dry, dry. Another plus was a nice,big fresh water camera rinse tank aboard, which, in my experience, is very unusual in Coz.

His crew, Francisco and Ricardo, were fantastic! They handled camera equipment very carefully, helped with gear doning and duffing, were quick with a dry towel and warm-up jacket at the end of a dive, offered refreshments promptly, were curteous, and generally all around nice guys...Well done fellows!

Jeremy offers 120 and 95 cu ft steel tanks, with optional Nitrox making for long dives or at least reasonable dive times for the more air hungry types. Surface intervals are spent at one of the local beach facilities giving a person the opportunity to stretch one's legs and soak up some sun.

I left dive site choices up to Jeremy ,mainly because I have dove all the sites multiple times but also because the winds were high and I respected his opinion as to the best choice for the day. One of the better dives I have ever had on Coz was the night dive on Santa Rosa. The creatures were out and very cooperative!

So, for those divers looking for well run, overall excellent dive operation, I think you should definitely give Jeremy and Living-Underwater a try. I don't think you will be disappointed.
