It's been close to a decade since our last drift dive. We've been diving destinations like Roatan & Bonaire, so I won't compare the dives them self. From the time I made the reservations, they were very friendly and easy to work with. Parking was a bit tight, so if you are going as a group, I'd car pool as... More

Scheduled to dive with them and had a decent time. Heard rumor it was sold while I was there but not sure about that. Good diving in this area.

This is an outstanding snorkeling trip at Isle Mujeres MX that gives guests a wonderful set of experiences with the "gentle giants" of the shark world. This trip is a full package (hotel, transfers, boat with captain and guide, breakfast, snacks and lunch) at the best warm water whale shark site in the world. Jim and his staff are pros... More

Greetings, I am from the great state of PA and came to South Florida for a vacation with my family. I was hoping to log a few more dives including the advertised Shark Dive. I was booked and gearing up for a dive the next day. I received a phone call from a woman at the dive shop saying that... More

Very enjoyable dive with a great crew! The captain and mates were very informed and helpful. The sealife was incredible. My next dive trip in WPB will be with these guys.

I think JASA is now Deep Obsession Charters. Capt Susan was great, dropped us exactly every time and the rest of the crew were great! They were all very enthusiastic about the sea life, even stopped the boat to see if we could swim with bottle nose dolphins while we were cruising out after our surface interval. Definitely a good...

Amazing place that offers shark dives in south Florida at very reasonable prices. This place is rebreather friendly as well.
