Comments In seven years of diving, Jeremy and his crew provided the best customer service we've ever experienced. For our 2 days of diving, my wife, daughter and I had the dive operation to ourselves. The boat was very well organized and Jeremy was always inquiring about ways that he could make the dives and our experience more enjoyable. He was very safety conscience and always providing tips on how to improve our diving (a born teacher!). This was especially important since this was the first time any of us had used steel 120's. Jeremy exhibited extensive knowledge of every dive site we visited and was very astute at finding even the smallest critters. At no time did we feel rushed and we had ample time to explore every nook and cranny we desired. During surface intervals, he provided plenty of cold drinks, fresh fruit and other snacks.

Bottom line: If you're going to Cozumel and want personalized service by an experienced dive operation, Living Underwater is the way to go. We'll definitely dive with Jeremy again.
