A great Dive operation, with a fast and safe 6 pack boat to dive from. Will recommend Captain Jamie to everyone visiting Venice, Florida.

Captain Jamie runs the safest and fun trips in Venice. Divers always find some great fossils on his trips to the Boneyard. His crew does an awesome job of assisting the divers and help educating them on what to look for. Our group goes every year with Aristakat Dive Charters go the USS Mohawk and have been incredible trips. I've... More

A few days before I was scheduled to go with another small local outfit their boat broke so I received a cancellation call. "The only other boat I can recommend is Capt Jamie's. I never met him, but I hear great things" he told me. He was 100% right. While I have been on 60+ dives and have my advanced... More

I have been diving with Captain Jamie and his crew for a couple years and every experience is extraordinary. The water off of Venice is perfect for fossils and Aristakat charters always provides excellent service. I wouldn't dive Venice with any other charter.

Capt Jamie will put you on the teeth, show you what to look for and with the gentlest words tell you the fossil you just brought back is really just a rock, but a pretty rock. We met him at the city dock... More

My 12 year old son and I went out with Capt Jamie in mid January for fossil diving in The Boneyard. The visibility was not great and the water was pretty chilly, but hunting for Megalodon shark teeth fossils was a blast. Since my son is young, I like him to dive with a guide. Capt Jamie dove with him... More

My son and I found out about Capt. Jamie and Aristakat Charters through tripadvisor. Even though unsure of what we were looking for in a dive we followed the advice of other reviews and booked a dive. We left with 3 other divers, a father/son team from Ohio and a diver from Tampa. Being that this was our first cold... More
