just spent a week with jeremy anschel, owner/operator/DM/ and good friend, at Living Underwater; honestly, i just don't know how it gets any easier or better than this; if you are ever wondering who to dive with i, and several other experienced divers on this forum, always recommend LU; jeremy is a genuinely great guy and provides concierge diving at its best (his crew, francisco and ricardo do everything but burp you and powder your behind on the boat); mario is a riot but also an excellent DM; mandatory computer use and 120's maximize dive time; slow, relaxed dive pace (jeremy is the zen master of finding and pointing out the minute and bizarre and an absolute magnet for finding toadfish); safety first approach to everything; great surface interval location; divers' choice for location (maracaibo was excellent); i have to thank jim baldwin for initially recommending jeremy to me; and after we dove withjeremy and LU that first week, we haven't ever considered going with anyone else; you can call jeremy on his cell or at home so hooking up with him is a piece of cake; thanks jeremy and the entire crew for another super week Living Underwater in cozumel; can't wait to go back
so many people post negative experiences with dive operators, it is great to read a positive one. I love the idea of using 120s, and that the staff has so much fun. Dive mastering for a living should be fun, otherwise they should find something that pays better
Now waiting for the next trip to the Red Sea in 2012
White Rock (greater Vancouver) BC Canada
200 - 499
It is one of those catch 22's...you want to keep a great dive operator all to yourself so that there is always room for you...but you also want for them to financially succeed so that they are always in business. Jeremy takes a maximum of eight divers so try not to tell more than seven people about him!
I have used Living Underwater on every trip to Cozumel and, although it is clear that many people on ScubaBoard have their favourites, I can't ever see switching away from Jeremy, Francisco and Ricardo. I am a great believer in loyalty and friendship.
My wife and I started diving with Jeremy when he first took over his business. He has always been great with us. We actually check before we plan a trip to make sure that he has some slots available.... Always a quality experience. We will be seeing him again for a week starting the 22nd of this month.
