About

Obsession Dive is a family owned and run business, evolving from three generations of passionate Sydney spearfishermen. Our family obsession with spearfishing began in 1955 when Craig Shephard’s father taught himself to catch fish with a home-made hand-spear on the plentiful reefs near Cronulla and Lake Macquarie. His success, ultimately lead to a lifetime of spearfishing with friends, family and the local spearfishing Club.

Following keenly in his father’s footsteps, Craig has turned his family love for the ocean into a career, becoming a biologist, commercial diver and owner/operator of Obsession Dive Shop with his wife, Justine. Craig is also a powerful ambassador for the spearfishing community and has represented spearos at the local, state and federal level, advocating for access and fishing rights.

With three generations of spearos alive and spearing, the future of spearfishing is in great hands with Craig and Justine’s two children, rapidly becoming involved in the sport.

Physically located in Taren Point, NSW Australia, the Obsession Dive shop offers a friendly personalised service, stocking a wide variety of trusted and reliable brands at competitive prices and catering for all levels of experience. Visit us in-store or here, online.
