This is expensive for what you get. Did a sunset cruise and it was not worth the money. Capitain and mate were average. The boat is not at there dock its at a different location, plan on not using a bathroom on this boat. 2 hour trip just avearge.

My wife and I visited this spot because it was ranked fairly well on TripAdvisor. The captain, Mike, and crew did not disappoint. They were all very knowledgeable and jovial after our safety debriefing. Our dive master also made sure that we did not miss anything whilst underwater. All in all our tour was about 3 hours long, with two... More

I've been back and forth to the keys for years and captain hooks is always one of my stops when I stay in marathon. They've always had great service and staff for the most part. This time around something was different though. Its sometimes a struggle to get to the dock without hitting it. The other day when I was... More

I was in this shop just about every day for a week getting bait and fishing supplies. They have a great live bait selection. Decent tackle selection. I would have given them a great review if they had a staff that didn't just stand around and look completely disinterested. Every time. No hello. No have a nice day. No can... More

My dive instructor stopped in here and another dive instructor on site recommended a location close by locally to do my open water testing because they were not going out based on wind and visibility. He also advised him of the stuff we may be able to see at this location. Safety and customer service are a top priority for... More

Although they offer everything from bait to sunset champagne cruises we like their friendly attitude the best. We always can find some nice logo tourist items AND they happily offer a military discount. There is a little "natural aquarium " around the front of the shop.

We went on a snorkel trip through Captain Hooks Marina and dive center. The trip was run by do rag who was very friendly and professional despite his name. We went to two different sites and unfortunately the conditions were not great for snorkeling. The water was a little rough and the visibility was not great. However, we all had... More

We rented their large boat with captain and first mate for a memorial at sea for our son, brother, uncle, friend and father. They took care of all the paperwork for us and followed all regulations as needed. During this emotional time, we only had to concentrate on saying goodbye to our loved one. His favorite place in the world... More
