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

seems as though they are more interested in selling t shirts than snorkle or fishing equipment , oh and they will rent you a boat... watch the marina the tide can be horrific for an ineperienced boater.

I called them to ask them if they would be diving in a marine sanctuary for both dives, they assured me that they would. However, the second dive was in a fishing area, so, no surprise, there were very few fish left for us to look at. Not to mention my friends who were snorkelling could not see anything at... More

A great morning spent out on the water! Captain "dew rag" and his crew provided a safe and fun environment for our family ranging in ages from 7-63. My ten year old was the perfect beginning age and could have spent the whole day out there! The 7 year old struggled a bit but she is small and lacked the... More

We like the knowledge and expertise at this shop. They Always put a divemaster in the water, which only makes sense! No additional cost to divers. Most dives are shallow..under 50 ft which allows a lot of bottom time.

All three are great to dive with and excellent at finding and pointing out great things to see. I seen 2 turtles, a few... More

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
