I booked a paddle board and snorkeling trip for my husband and daughter which ended up being a kayaking tour with no snorkeling and led by someone who had never done the tour before. Not worth it

I hit the worst weather for diving, seas too high. Hooks still went snorkelling. The boat is much larger than other companies and can easily accommodate 20 or more divers. Good snorkelling but no weights dished out. If you are experienced bring your own. Great...More

Reasonable price. Boat in good condition. Friendly staff. Could not of asked for more. Upon return at 4PM they have fish feeding which is interactive for the kids. No charge. More than your money's worth (it's free!) whether you rented or not.

I am wondering about safe, reasonably priced places to stay within walking distance (four or five blocks) of Captain Hooks? Hotels, motels, condos??? Also, are there restaurants within walking distance, and/or at least one decent grocery store? I'm aiming to visit in January or February, but I would rather not have to drive or worry about parking if it can be helped.
