As a dive professional I get the opportunity to work with alot of people in the industry, the staff at Deep Obsession are among the best! Ryan and his staff tak...e a great deal of pride in the services they provide and it shows. I have been on the Deep Obsession many times over the years but yesterday was the first time under the new owner. It was by far my best trip on her yet! Keep up the good work, ill be back again soon.

I have been a certified PADI diver since 1985 and Dive Master since 1999. My dive buddy and I have dove on previous trips to Florida with Ryan on Deep Obsession... and had good experiences. I spoke to Ryan after Irma and booked three days of Goliath Grouper/Shark dives between 9/17-9/21 after confirming that they were good to go barring bad weather.

Each day we received a confirming e-mail that were going and confirmed. A few hours later, we received a cancellation e-mail due to "not enough divers" and that their cancellation policy "is stated in every confirmation". I read the fine print and yes this is Ryan and Amber's terms and conditions. "All charters require a minimum of 6 guests to guarantee the charter will go."

I have dove practically everywhere in the world, but never experienced cancellations due to not enough divers. We flew down from NY and PA to only dive with Deep Obsessions, paid for two air fares, a condo rental, rental car, meals, etc. We lost over $1800.00.

To me, as a retired Hotelier, this fine print disclaimer is poor business policy at best. We never heard from Ryan about our loss and Amber offered a discount on future dives. My advice to Ryan, Amber, and Deep Obsessions is to highlight/bold or verbalize their policy of "not enough divers cancellation policy". In our case, a verbal BTW we may not go on the 3 booked days would have given us the opportunity to not dive with them, avoid the time and expense of our travel, or delay the trip until normal conditions existed.

What a great dive shop and diving experience! Staff was like a family. Beautiful boat and great dive spots. They took great care of me when I was feeling a little sea sick. We will be back to do a shark dive. Highly recommend diving with @Deep Obsessions Charters!

Amazing dive charter and crew! Perfect for all levels of experience! Just finished my fourth year in a row diving with Deep O for Memorial Day weekend, and plan...ning on going again next year. You won't find a better charter in the area. The crew is amazing, always very helpful to their divers and making sure they have a fun and safe experience regardless of if they are a new diver or very experienced one. They are also just as conscious to take care of the animals they encounter which speaks volumes about their passion for what they do. Would highly recommend that anyone considering diving in the area book with them. Thank you again to Ryan, Amber, Scott, Roger, Kori, Autumn and David for an amazing trip...see you soon! See More

There is no better charter in town! The level of Guest Service shown by every member of this crew is on the same level as Disney. They are always happy to ca...ter to the wishes of the folks diving with them, whether that means visiting shallow reefs or favorite wrecks. Then there is the expert shark diving. The professionals at Deep Obsession Charters are not out to satisfy thrill seekers with their shark expeditions (although the thrills are unavoidable) instead their focus is education and conservation. I have been diving for 25 years and teaching for seven years, I would recommend Deep Obsession Charters to anyone and everyone! See More

I did my first shark dive here, and it was an absolute blast! We were surrounded, we had a great interaction with a dusky shark. Started on scuba and saw silkie...s bulls and lemons, and they were so active after our dive we jumped back in with skin gear and got really close to em. Deep O's crew was fantastic and took real good care of my buddy when he had a CO2 headache after our second dive. All in all totally amazed by what I got to see today, and definitely recommending them to all the adventure divers I know! See More

I am one of the two new owners of IDive Florida in Saint Augustine. It is tough to find a quality charter to bring divers out with that you feel completely comf...ortable with. If you have ever wanted to go diving in the West Palm area, if you've ever wanted to dive with sharks or if you're just looking for an amazing crew deep obsession charters has you covered. We will continue to dive with and book with this great group. There are a lot of charter companies in West Palm and we have used quite a few, but moving forward we will only dive with Deep Obsession charters. See More

Absolutely the best company to go with. Safety is their number 1 priority as well as educating everyone about the amazing creatures you dive with. They know all... the resident animals and can quickly identify a visiting shark. I have been diving with them for 5 years now and have yet to have a bad dive. Everyone is super friendly and helpful and knowledgeable. They are there to properly show you the ocean and you will leave with a greater love for all things aquatic. Wish I lived closer to visit more often. See More

Great experience! Awesome crew, great captain, facilities were on point. Only negative thing I can say is we got too wet and saw way too many sharks. get it together guys!

What an unforgettable experience! From Utah looking to see some sharks, from start to finish they were professional. I would recommend this to trip to anyone looking to get up close and personal with wildlife.

My wife and I have gone out several times with Ryan and crew and have nothing but great things to say. For these guys, clearly its more than "just a business" a...nd it's fantastic how enthusiastic they get when they see sharks even though that's a daily occurrence for them. Super safe diving with good briefings, and above all a laid-back attitude that helps everyone have a good time without being rushed or panicked no matter what the experience level is. We'll definitely keep coming back. See More

One of the best dive experiences of my life. This crew was extremely accommodating, safe, knowledgeable, and knew how to get the sharks right where you want em. Thank you for an experience I'll never forget! I will definitely be back soon!

I did a three tank shark dive and it was amazing. The crew is extremely helpful and knowledgeable. From the time we got in the water until the time we got back on the boat, the sharks were there. I would definitely recommend going with them if you want to shark dive.

By far my favorite dive operator in all of Florida.
The crew is absolutely incredible: they are very safety-oriented, they treat guests very well, and are know...ledgeable of dive sites in West Palm, sharks, underwater photography, and all things scuba.
They also value the importance of shark conservation while educating the guests on why we need to save these misunderstood animals.
Deep O offers a variety of diving for divers of all skill/cert levels.
I've been diving with Deep O three times already, and planning my fourth!!
Highly recommend :)

My son and I went on a 3 tank shark dive. I will break this review into two parts - the dive and the charter.

As for the dive, we were up close with 8-10 fo...ot lemon and nurse sharks. They were feeding right there inches from us and we felt safe the entire time. Unbelievable experience. And yes, we actually touched the sharks. On the second tank, we were with two Goliath groupers - beautiful gentle giants and then we had 6 large bull sharks come in to check us out. Very cool. On the third tank, 4 reef sharks adopted us and swam with us the entire dive. Beautiful, sleek and fast. All in all - an experience every diver should have.

As for Deep Obsession - I can not recommend them highly enough. Friendly and responsive by phone. We had minor equipment issues with our gear and they happily offered replacement gear for us. Everyone was nice, friendly and knowledgable. I am used to loading my own gear and tanks. Multiple times they told me to "stop working - you are on vacation - we will take care of everything." And I felt safe the entire time. They know what they are doing as a dive boat and as shark divers. It makes such a great difference to be with people who love what they do and are enjoyable to be with.

This crew is the best! I've dived off Deep Obsession three times in the past year, and I'm already looking forward to coming back.

When you go, expect thorough... predive briefings, knowledgeable and helpful divemasters, expert guides while you're diving, awesome underwater sights, and an emphasis on safety from start to finish.

If you're an experienced Nitrox diver, I highly recommend the shark dives! Get up close and personal with these beautiful animals, then prepare to go out into the world and correct misconceptions about them.

If you are the sort of person who gets motion sickness, I recommend meclizine the night before and again morning of! �
