My brother and I had booked a snorkelling tour with Jim Abernathy's a month in advance. We travelled from the UK and planned our whole trip to Florida around this tour, driving miles to get there and paying for local accommodation. We arrived at the boat 45 mins before as required but no one was there. We waited another 20... More

The Crew of Deep Obsession were all very knowledgeable. The briefings before the dives were very through you knew exactly what to expect when you hit the water. I have always loved Sharks but this dive gave me a whole new appreciation for them. Great Time

I did my first boat dive ever with them and have done many more since. I made a huge mistake my first dive, they kept me safe and uninjured through that experience and... More

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
