Osprey Charters has been taking divers to Lake Erie's best kept secrets for over 20 years, and we've got no plans on changing. Being on the water is more than just a profession for us it's a passion that dates back to childhood. When you love something this much, you can't help but do it well.

Captain Michael Cochrane was born and raised in the town of Westfield, NY. When he was 14 years old, he met the previous owner of Osprey Charters, Captain Jim Herbert. It was then that he started his exciting adventrue upon the Southwind!
