We were to go diving on Thursday but the seas were rough. The trip was cancelled. Good call by the Captain to keep the divers safe and happy. They went out on Saturday and dove the wreck and Horseshoe Reef. Two great dives. I will dive with Capt. Hooks again.

On a whim, my wife and I decided to go snorkeling. The rate is so reasonable and the crew is very personable. We had a fantastic time with Capt. Do Rag and Travis. These guys are top notch with safety and friendly interaction with their guests. I highly recommend this trip for everyone. Thanks for the wonderful experience.

We were scheduled for an afternoon Dive. However, the boat broke down halfway to our dive site. We realize things can happen and the staff on the boat handled it like professionals! Unfortunately we sat on the boat for almost 2 hours while the captain attempted to reach the owner to get some direction as to what to do. Nobody... More

We went out on the 2 hour guided kayak tour and it was worth the little bit more than you pay for a single. Our guide Andrew was explaining everything as we went along from the fish to the birds and the eco system in the mangroves. But the best or scary part was as we were returning with no... More

Only dive site that was going out today with questionable weather. They waited for me as I was a last minute joiner. Great education on the way to the reef, two dives, nurse shark, eels, green sea turtle, beautiful tropical fish and corals. Instructor and crew were accommodating, fun, and helpful. Would definitely dive with them again!

It started out as a rainy afternoon, but once all the clouds parted, we were treated to an amazing snorkeling experience on the special protected area "SPA" of the reef a few miles from shore. The Captain and crew of The Jolly Roger were knowledgable and ensured our safety by strictly adhering to Coast Guard rules and roll calling from... More

To be up front and honest, we did not use Captain Hooks. We purchased two spots for an afternoon snorkel, but based on our interactions, we did not go. When we called, they were full for the afternoon ride and did not have enough for the morning trip. We signed up for the morning trip. Staff said they would call... More

Sometimes you get one of these reviews where there is no possible way you can win. 1. We line up our calls so we can make them all at one time…this couple happened to call just before we called them. This is not a lack of service, this is our procedures and we followed exactly what we said we were... More
