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

I decided not to trailer a boat from my hotel down in Islamorada to my sisters hotel in marathon. Decided to rent one for the day. What we received was less than perfect I can tell you that. The boat had no steering at all. It was loose and jumped and slid around like air in the lines. The girl... 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

Second year of boat rental and reefs with these guys. While year on was good this year was great. Did some group dives with the Hook too. Prices were most reasonable for the island. Great crew, had so much fun with Captain Darrel who was new. Friendly and helpful in and out the docks with the boat. Good facilities for... More

Mixed thoughts on this particular company. I liked that they had pool floaties that you could use in the water. It was really choppy the day that we went, so this was really helpful. Our boat was a mix of divers and snorklers, which we found confusing. This also meant that the first location we went to was 30 feet... More

Katherine and Denise are world class diving masters when it came to sharing tricks of the trade! We had such a good time with their entire crew, that it was hard to leave! Everyone was pleasant, sharing hilarious ocean tales, and inviting us into their close-knit group for the few days we were there? Kelly was an awesome captain, keeping... More

We took both the snorkeling and the jetski tours and were soooo happy about both of them. Especially the jetski tour with our superb guide Matt was awesome, Matt's expertise and friendly manner made our day into one of the best vacation days on our trip.

This was a good value for a first snorkel trip for my 10 and 13 year old boys. When booking I went in to the shop to ask if the water was more calm in the morning or afternoon. The very young lady told me the morning. I found out later that she should have said "it depends on the... More
