Had a great experience with this company. I've gone out with another shark diving company before but this one surpassed my expectations- the crew were so helpful and attentive, they made the day fun ...and exciting and the boat was nice and clean. Ryan is a pro at what he does and is a wealth of knowledge, and safety is the crew's top priority which is so important with things like this. They're also more affordable than similar companies and work with you to make sure you have the best experience, whether it's with getting the proper gear or judging if conditions are right to go out. I'll definetely book another trip with them ! See More

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 take 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 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 silkies bulls and lemons, and they were so act...ive 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

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 planning 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 cater to the wishes of the folks diving wi...th 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

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 foot lemon and nurse sharks. They were fe...eding 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.

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 comfortable 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 id...entify 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

Absolutely fantastic charter!! Such great crew and spacious, well-equipped boat. Everyone is so helpful with whatever you need, always friendly, encouraging, and joking around on the boat. Makes divin...g that much more enjoyable! Also very experienced captains and crew who are always concerned about safety as the number one priority. I mainly shark dive with them and can't get enough. There's always a plan, and Ryan is great about briefings and making you feel so comfortable before jumping in. If I could rate it more than 5 stars, I would. See More

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.

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 knowledgeable of dive sites in West Palm, sh...arks, 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 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" and 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

Another great weekend of diving. This is a great boat and crew. I'm looking forward to many more dives with y'all in the future.

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 he...lpful 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! �

Who should take this course?

Everyone likes to scuba dive or snorkel in warm, clear water on a vibrant coral reef, yet many people know little about what they’re seeing or the importance of reef ecosystems. The AWARE - Coral Reef Conservation Specialty course helps you appreciate the complexity of these habitats and teaches you how you can help conserve these vital systems.

Anyone who has an interest in the aquatic world can take this course. There are no prerequisites or age restrictions and no water sessions are required to earn this non-diving certification.

What will you learn?

Through classroom discussions, you learn:
•How coral reefs function and the complex nature of life on a reef.
•Why coral reefs are so important.
•Why many coral reefs are in serious trouble.
•What you can do to prevent further decline.
•How Project AWARE unites divers and water enthusiasts to make a difference.

Please join me during my Birthday weekend for a Project AWARE Dive Against Debris dives.We will be diving 2 different sites to collect the Debris that unfortunately continue to accumulate in our ocean. From the smallest bits of plastic, car batteries and appliances, to enormous fishing nets, "stuff" from our daily lives makes its way to the ocean by the ton every day. As Earth's growing population consumes more disposable goods, the items we discard, even thousands of miles inland, are choking our ocean planet.

Join us in the battle against marine debris and Dive Against Debris. Your local actions contribute to a clean, healthy future for the ocean.

In spite of the rains this week and last we are making progress. Deep Obsession is getting a facelift. Today along with first coat on the boot stripe, priming of running gear, filling the fuel tank ( always a good sign), she had her name rightfully put back on by Jordan Vilonna. He did a great job quickly and perfectly. Had to know he’s from Long Island only 10 minutes from where I grew up. ( ok I haven’t grown up).
We will be back shortly better than ever.
