Denise certified 4 teenage boys (two were mine) which allowed us an amazing day of diving with Capt. Mike who was very knowledgable about the dive sites. Captain Hook's staff is very helpful and made for an enjoyable day on the water. They are highly experienced, detail oriented and maintain a safe environment.

Visiting Marathon with 3 families. Four of our boys - ages 13,13,14, and 15 enjoyed getting their scuba certification with Denise, the instructor. Very professional from trip pre-planning, coordinating, and boat/dive crew. 6 others on our party joined the newly certified divers on the last day for an INCREDIBLE experience! Highly recommend for all things scuba diving related!

Capt Mike with the doo-rag and Travis were great! Snorkels with them on Monday and returned for two of us to dive and 5 of us to snorkel on Thursday. Very knowledgeable about the reefs. Safety was covered very well. Friendly and courteous. Only place in Marathon with a dive master. He was knowledgeable and safe in the water. Boats... More

Rented a deck boat from Captain Hook's this past weekend. We were a group of 9 (including the teens and small kids). Captain Hook's was great! They helped us with all of the fishing equipment and bait for the kids. We had a great day on the water. All of the staff was excellent. We'll be back soon!

I went out with Travis and Capt. Mike (doo rag). They are very friendly, concerned about everyone's safety and educated us about the SPA-Special Protection Area. It's important not to touch or kick too close to the coral. It's very sensitive and slow growing. Kudos to Florida for creating SPA areas along the reef. I saw the most diversity of... More

We had a group of about 20 go out together. Some of us went snorkeling and some others went diving. The crew did a great job of scouting out spots that worked for both groups. The boat was large enough for us all to ride comfortably. The crew were very safety conscious...I felt very well cared for. They have extra... More

I'm not one to write reviews, but this one had to be written. This is the best group of professionals you could ask for when diving in the Keys. My wife and I completed our Advanced Open Water certification during our vacation to Marathon. Kathleen, Denise, Angie, and Captain Mike were amazing to spend time with throughout the week. Safety...

My husband and I went on a snorkeling trip this morning with Captain Hooks. We went to two different reefs during our outing. The ocean was a bit more choppy than I had expected though we still had a great time. We saw many different types of animals and aquatic life. As this was our fist time snorkeling we felt... More

Great crew, they both knew their craft. I was having a not so good day with my equipment .They helped as much as possible. Make sure you ask where the boat takes off from.Sometimes the staff that answer the phone does not give you'll the information you need.
