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!
