We chose to go diving with captain hooks based off the good reviews, so we booked the AM two dive trip for October 31. When we booked we were told there would be some divers that would be spear fishing, but they would have their own guide and not be near us. Not the case. They fished off the back of the boat and we ran into them frequently. On the second spot they cut up a baracuda they had caught at the first location, and threw it into the water to attract more fish, even though there were already plenty around, it was a waste of a fish. Then their catches were brought on board and laid at our feet. We couldn't change seats since the small boat was full of us and some snorklers. We were also disappointed with the service provided on board. Maybe we have just always been spoiled by other dive shops, but the deal has always been you set up your equipment, and they switch tanks for you for the second dive, and then break your equipment down at the end; not the case here. We did it all. There was nothing special about this dive shop. They did the bare minimum. Only positive was the dive guide, who was at least pleasant. Overall a disappointing first dive experience in marathon, next time I will try one of the other shops.
