Running out of Hillsboro Inlet, Hydrotherapy Dive Charters is dedicated to running safe, reliable, comfortable dive charters for our clients. While on your trip, our crew will provide soft drinks and water, as well as a surface interval snack while you pass the time between dives. If you are a new diver, or just new to the area and need of a guide for any specific dive, we have you covered. For our technical divers we offer in water bottle service to collect your extra deco/bottom gas cylinders while you drift to decompress.

Please come experience the amazing dive sites we have to offer in the area, and let us show you the reefs and wrecks we are so passionate about!

Landon Lasseter MD MS MBA – Owner

Having over a decade of experience in the dive industry, and a lifetime of experience in varying business ventures, Landon brings a diversified background and unique perspective to Hydrotherapy Dive Charters.

Landon has been an instructor since 2012, with current instructor ratings from SDI, TDI, FRTI, RAID, SSI and previous instructor ratings for IANTD, SNSI, and NAUI. Teaching for multiple agencies, his courses range from recreational to the technical, including trimix to CCR, and as a trained healthcare professional, a BLS Instructor through the AHA. 

In his spare time, he can often be found exploring the many wrecks and reefs the Fort Lauderdale area has to offer, on Hydrotherapy of course, or cave diving in North Florida. Landon is also a partner in Deep 6 Gear, a dive equipment manufacturing company, and holds additional certifications and training including BLS, ACLS, PALS, DMAC L1 (Medical Examiner of Divers), and DMAC 2D (Physicians Training in Diving Medicine).

Captain Nick Blair – Owner

Nick has been diving nearly as long as he can remember. Beginning in Kentucky as a child, it was inevitable that made his way to Florida to continue with his passion. Working as a shop manager and divemaster for years before becoming a Captain, Nick understands how to operate, manage, and captain a dive boat. He brings skill to the table, providing excellent drops on our local wrecks as well as an extensive depth of knowledge about all the local dive sites.

Whether it is providing customers with a memorable time while on board, or making sure they hit their favorite reef spot, he is always working to enhance the customer experience. You never quite know what you will get as Nick is a constant source of entertainment. In his spare time, Nick can be found doing what Nick does. He enjoys still teaching the occasional scuba course, diving for fun, spending time with his son, and plays the guitar. As the in-house diesel mechanic for the operation his duties aren’t done after the trip, as he maintains the vessel.
