I reserved a snorkeling tour with Captain Hooks 2 weeks in advance and 30 minutes before the trip began, they cancelled it claiming that the conditions were "low visibility". My colleague and I called another company and they took us out for 4 hours. Good conditions and good visibility!! 40 feet visibility no problem. For Captain Hook's we were the... More

Decent price, great boat. One of the few places we could find that offered a boat that could comfortably fit our party of 9. We had to call someone to come out when the boat wouldn't start on our second morning-Thanksgiving Day- he arrived super fast and had it up and running in no time. Everyone is very friendly and...

From the first phone call, walking in the dive shop, to gearing up and hitting the water, every step and person we encountered was organized and friendly. Denise help check us in and get our gear. Our boat captain Mike "Do-rag," first mate Lydia, and Travis or dive master and guide in the water were first rate and fun. It... More

Out front, there are two ponds with lots of fish. Walk inside, and surprise! It's quite a shop! We stopped in for bait. The folks were very helpful in suggesting which type of bait for pier fishing. There is also a good selection of dive gear, and I found myself a very nice replacement dive mask at a reasonable price.... More

Well our journey started with Captain Hook's representative, Henry. We talked with him at the Holiday Inn Marathon every morning when he was there. Henry suggested going snorkeling and also the sunset cruise. At the beginning of the week the water was to choppy to snorkel and there were not enough people signed up for the sunset cruise. Thursday, 11/10,... More

I had never snorkeled in the Florida Keys. Based on what I had been told, I shouldn't expect much. Boy, was that information wrong!! I booked a snorkel trip with Captain Hook's primarily because they did an 8:00 am departure and that fitted my schedule. We went to two locations. The first was described as a generic type of reef.... More

We have nothing negative to say about our recent snorkle trip with Capt. Hooks. The crew was very thorough and a thrill to go out with. The 2 reefs that they took us to were filled with fish and the time in the water was more than sufficient to see a great array of fish and coral. We will definitely... More

I've been Diving for close to 40 years, with probably a couple of thousand dives along the way. This is by far the BEST Dive Operator I have come across in a VERY long time. Very attentive to everyone, from the beginning snorkeler, to the most advance diver. They have an awesome selection of Reefs to choose from, and not... More
