Comments What a great operation. Captain/Owner Jeff Jarvis and his wife Betty made us feel very comfortable. The HMS Minnow is a great boat and easy to dive from (in & out of water)!

Jeff is very accommodating. He asks where you want to go or what you want to see. He will give you input on dive sites and let you pick.

We did 12 dives in 5 days (parents did 18) and my only regret is that we didn't book more time on his boat as he was full the whole week and we couldn't add any dives! It seemed that most other divers on boat we repeats diving with Jeff - I know why! I would recommend booking on the HMS Minnow the next time you head to Key Largo!
