We visited the keys recently for our Honeymoon and had a dive trip planned with Captain Hooks for a few months in advance. The staff had been completely responsive to emails and phone calls and we couldn't wait to meet them! When we arrived for our trip we were the only divers on the boat along with a few snorkelers....

My husband and I recently took a snorkeling tour with Captain Hook and were very impressed. The boat was about half scuba divers and half snorkelers but the dive master included everyone in her description of the area. She very clearly but nicely explained how fragile the reef system is and we were impressed by how she took ownership of... More

We booked a snorkeling trip and we went to 2 different reefs - one was Coffin's Patch Reef and the other was Donut Reef. We had a great time! The captain was great and crew was great too! The fee of $25 pays for fins, mask and snorkels. Some people rented the wet suits due to Moon Jellyfish but my... More

Came here to dive the Thunderbolt on Tues. I dove Wed, Thurs, Fri, and Sat!!! Was only planning one dive. The crew here is absolutely fantastic. I had a really hard time saying good-bye and I will definitely go back soon. Special thanks to Megan for scheduling all my dives and introducing me to Capt Kelly. I learned the rules... More

We had an amazing time with Captain Hook's! Both Captain Michael and our instructor Denise were very knowledgeable and fun to interact with. We went to two beautiful reefs, for an hour each. They were very accommodating and I would hope that when we go again, we get the same crew! It's a great value for $25/person, which includes all... More

We rented a boat from Captain Hook's because the other company we tried calling would tell us they would return our calls but didn't, even after 2 days of calling. The prices were a little higher here but they did at least have customer service. The boats were not in excellent condition but considering they are rentals, we didn't expect... More

While staying in Marathon we went to Captain Hooks Dive Center on two occasions. Each one was a negative experience and waist of our time, On the first visit I was interested in renting two scuba tanks. The staff member, assisting me with the rental paperwork took a phone call and delayed the completion of the transaction for about 15... More

Had an opportunity while in Marathon to work on my Diving Certifications. I use Captain Hooks marina to gas my boat and get bait. So I went with them to do my certifications. First of all the staff is some of the best people I have ever had the pleasure to spend time with. The training, diving, and the hour... More

My son completed his open water check out dives with Kathleen and then we both did the advanced open water dives with Dave the same week. We had a great time and felt that they went above and beyond my expectations. Kathleen, Dave, Denise and even Daryl the Captain of the Boat were very safe and ensured everyone on the... More
