Our 13 year old daughter arrived in the Fl Keys with her pool work already completed and needed to finish her open water dives to become certified. She was nervous and we honestly were worried that it just wasn't going to happen. Denise spent TONS of time with me on the phone and was impressively patient with our daughter. She... More

we used Captain Hooks on two different occasions - both from the Docks next to Tarpon Creek. The first we had a full day on the Kayaks. For Brits this was the best day ever. Paddling around the creeks and bays was heaven, the wildlife and the way we got so close was unbelievable. The jellyfish gardens were amazing. The... More

I took the $25 snorkel trip right from the Holiday Inn that I was staying at. Talk about convenience! Captain Mike was great getting the info we needed. Kyle was an excellent mate and instructor. We went to Donut Hole and Coffin Reefs. We spent about an hour at each reef. Each reef was slightly different with Donut Hole being... More

This is an authentic Keys dive shop. I wasn't sure when I first walked in, but Denise won me over. She was so passionate talking about the reef. The crew were awesome and Kathleen was a great dive guide. I have made dives with at least four other dive shops, but I will definitely go back to Captain Hooks!

During our visit to Marathon, two of my children (ages 11 & 13) became PADI certified at Captain Hook's. Denise was their extremely capable, qualified, and enthusiastic dive instructor, and I highly recommend her to anyone who wants to become SCUBA certified-children and adults alike. In addition, we dove as a family 4 times (8 dives), and all of the... More

My wife and son went charter fishing with capt. james simcic on a trip to the keys. Capt. James and his first mate were fun and professional. We caught snapper, grouper, and hog fish. My son and wife had a great time. I loved the fact that all we had to do is show up and Capt. James took care... More

All staff and crew were pleasant and helpful.We had a great time snorkeling in Marathon Key. Captain hook's was our choice and they took us to a couple of locations. The Coffin Patch reef was fantastic with lots of different kinds of fish. Very relaxing and enjoyable experience.

finally found a favourite dive charter in Florida. These guys are brilliant. Travis, Kathleen, Angie and do-rag were simply doing a zillion more than their job description as did the captains. They know what customer centricity means ! The whole crew really did every possible effort to make your trip the best ever and are very environmentally conscious. Sailed three... More

Dove two days with Hooks. Booked on Trip Advisor as well as personal reviews from home. Great trips! All 4 dives were reef dives. Staff was awesome. Captain Mike, Beth, Kathlene (Dont take my shells :-), and Angie. All dives were guided at no charge. What a great bonus! This group has their act together and run a great business.... More
