My family, friend & I have spent weeklong dive trips with Jeff Jarvis
on the HMS Minnow for each of the past three years. Jeff & his lovely
"Mate" Betty run a top-notch operation. They provide
professional, thorough, honest & friendly service. Jeff has always gone
out of his way to put us on dive sites with the best conditions available
below the surface & the fewest boats above the surface. The tanks
consistently started with 3000+ lbs. I particularly enjoyed Conch Wall,
Snapper Ledge, the Spiegel Grove & the Duane. I would highly recommend
Jeff, Betty & their Minnow to any diver going to Key Largo, regardless
of experience level. Any future trips we take to Key Largo will include
diving from the HMS Minnow.
