My wife and I booked a reef dive. We did not leave out of the marina located at the dive center, but from the Holiday Inn marina down the road a mile or so. The dive boat was nice, a pontoon boat, easy in and out, but it also accommodates snorkelers which means when your diving it is most likely... More

Only three Scuba divers so they sent us out with a group of snorkels, that was fine. They provide a guide. The visibility was very poor so to get anything out of the trip you need to go slow and look at the little things. Our guide must have thought he was on a race track. We were constantly getting...

Great diving club with a super team. Everything was ok with cold water on board. Small boat where we were with 7 divers and 2 non divers. Great experience to be shared.

We are a family with young kids (12, 10 and 7) who wanted a snorkelling trip out to the reefs rather than just from the beach. Captain hooks team was great - well organised and looked after everyone on the boat. Really knowledgable of the area and reefs and was able to plan according to the weather conditions. Would recommend... More

Captain Hook's reef dive did not disappoint! The crew were awesome, entertaining and very safety focused. I went with a friend that wasn't certified so she snorkeled while I dove. We both had an excellent experience. We dove holy net and the ledge off marathon. The dive master, Travis, did an awesome job of pointing out fish, stingray, lobsters and... More
