About Captain Hook's
Captain Hook’s Marathon has been the place to get everything you need for a day on the ocean. We have achieved the TripAdvisor's Certificate of Excellence three years in a row now. Our services include diving & snorkeling trips, Thunderbolt wreck and night dives, spearfishing & lobstering, dive instruction & certification, fishing charters, kayak & paddleboard tours, even SUP Yoga. Our store compliments and full supports those services with a full-service bait & tackle shop and a full-service dive shop. We have extended our business with the addition of Strike Zone Charters in Big Pine Key, now called Capt. Hook's Big Pine Key. This has added multiple dive sites, another wreck called the Adolphus Busch Sr., and another beautiful sanctuary and premier dive and snorkel site...Looe Key Reef.
