Comments I contacted Jeremy after reading his rave reviews on Undercurrent. My husband was certified almost two years ago, but had never had the opportunity to practice his skills. We signed up for a refresher on our first afternoon followed by three days of diving with Jeremy and his other divers. Jeremy was thorough, thoughtful, and patient with my husband. He coached him throughout the three days so that i didn't have to. Most importantly, he continued to work with my husband to make sure he has the skills to set him up to enjoy diving and to be a good diver.

And, the diving! We saw sharks, turtles, and even a seahorse. On 7 dives - we didn't see a single lion fish - a first in Caribbean diving for me. Jeremy even found a few locations without current so we could poke around and check out the nooks and crannies.

His dive operation is friendly and professional. They take care of all of your equipment every day, including setting it up and taking it off your tanks. There were great snacks - fruit or baked treats between dives, as well as water. Diving is by back-roll in to the water. You take off your BCD and hand it up before you get out of the water. Really, its so easy!

Jeremy picks you up at your hotel every day. We were staying at the Palace because we wanted to be able to walk in to town each night. We were always first pick up since the diving is down at the other end of the island. It was a longer drive, but our boat always zipped past the slower, larger, and much more crowded resort-run dive boats. I don't know if that would have gotten old after a week's worth of diving. The Palace is all-inclusive. The nightly entertainment was entertaining, the view is beautiful, and the food was good. It wasn't an all the time party atmosphere, which we appreciated. However, it was pricey, so we'll check out one of the other hotels on our next visit.

We're already planning our next trip back to Cozumel to dive with Jeremy.
