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

We spent 2 days diving with Captain Jamie. All our dives were great with exceptional service. I will continue to come dive here with Aristakat Charters.

I have dove with Capt. Jamie and crew many times for Teeth and have never been disappointed. First, the boat is an ideal diving platform. If you are unfamiliar with power catamarans, they are superior in stability both at anchor and underway. Cats do not have the hard pounding hitting waves that traditional boats do. In addition they do not... More

Captain Jamie is fun, professional, safe, and knowledgeable. He consistently put me over shark teeth, was personable and fun, and created a relaxed atmosphere. The mates, Lori and Scott, were very helpful and attentive. Found six Megalodon teeth, one of which was 3 1/4" long. I can't think of a time I have had so much fun. HIGHLY recommend.

Great fossil diving. Great charter out to the local wrecks. 100% service, from gear to assistance to getting us to the sites. Beats the other local outfits out of the water. Literally.

5 to 6 foot seas and a heavy wind out the West, Capt. Jaime gave us the choice of "giving it a shot" or calling it off for the day. We launched the Aristikat and headed out of the harbor. As soon as we got to open sea the choppy waters began. We continued on and dropped anchor at the... More

We went diving with Capt. Jaime and his first mate Lori recently and had a great trip. He explained each dive thoroughly before we want in the water so we knew what to look for and what to expect. They took the time to show us things we may have missed and able to give us insight on the area... More
