Stayed in the Holiday Inn Express at Marathon and booked a snorkle trip via the Captain Hook rep at the hotel. Although I am a certified diver, the rest of the group were not and wanted to snorkle. The trip was suppose to start at the dock behind the hotel so it would have been ideal. However, they changed the... More

Red flags went up before my husband and I even set foot in the dive shop. When I called to make reservations for four dive trips approximately a week in advance, we were told we had to pay for all four dives advance. Not just provide a credit card to hold the reservations, but I was told our card would... More

Had a diving/snorkeling combo trip. Captains Mike and Mike were very courteous and helpful. Dive master Denise was fantastic. They had good rental equipment and are very careful about maintaining the delicate reef. When in Marathon my family will book with Captain Hook exclusively.

Located right behind the Holiday Inn Express. This is the marina where you launch your paddle board, kayak or jet ski. We took out 7 paddle boards and they explained the waterways to us and gave us a map because we have experience paddle boarding and did not want a tour guide. We paddled through all the way to the...

Very fun trip. The staff was great from reservation via phone through gearing up and going to the reefs. We had a very full boat but that did not detract from anything. Dive master Kathleen was very knowledgeable and mate Jeff was helpful with mask newbies. Saw lots of fish and the Special Protected Area was spectacular. Lots of time... More

We first went on a kayak trip with Sean, nice knowledgeable college kid, then we did a snorkel trip with Captain Kelly and his group, they were all very helpful and watchful of my son who has a form of autism, even made big deals of little goals he accomplished! That was such a great experience we snorkeled AGAIN with... More

Worse dive trip ever! Captain crashed the boat into the dock twice. Dive master Denise was rude and careless. $4000 vacation mistake. Definitely not diving with this company ever again!

This place provides a great value. The sights were amazing. We were able to see a ton of fish and coral. The captain and staff were friendly and helpful. The boat was clean. This was an experience our whole family enjoyed.
