Overview

Captain Hook’s Marina and Dive Center 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 Looe Key Reef Adventures & Strike Zone Charters. 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.
