Comments This was our first trip with Jerome's Living Underwater. The company has its roots with Aldora Divers who we dove with our last 5 trips. They cost more than almost all dive operations in Cozumel and for good reason!
Fast boats! Small groups with the max being 6 divers. High service level of Jerome and his captains. They set up all your gear and store it overnight. Cozy long jackets for service intervals. Fresh fruit and cookies and water for service interval and after dive. Jerome is a wonderful divemaster! He is very safety concious, a super small critter finder and highly customer oriented.
You get more bottom time with Living Underwater than any other operator on the island because of the steel 120 tanks and mandatory computers. He also took us to the north end of the island. After 6 trips to Cozumel this was the first time we had been there. We had tried every trip but most operators won't take you. We saw the Eagle Ray migration there!
This operation is not for beginer divers but for experienced divers that want their every wish to come true.
