This is based on 10 trips with Captain Hooks in the past year. They do a few things that are easy to do but ensure safety. They get your air reading before you enter the water and when you get out on every dive. This is a SMART thing to do. This gives them a way to ensure they don't miss a diver PLUS if someone is having problems with air they have a better opportunity to monitor it. Also they put a dive master in the water on every dive to act as a guide. This is a huge big deal for solo divers who at other operators must pay for a guide.
On a recent trip we had planned to spearfish and booked a trip. Visibility was very poor from a storm the previous day and they canceled the main trip. When they learned that we were leaving the next day, the guide, Andy, offered to take us on a solo trip out to try to find fish. He worked hard to make sure we had every opportunity to get some fish. My son was thrilled to spear his very first fish and is hooked on spearfishing.
We will be back!! We loved Andy. He was great! Also enjoyed captains Doug and Greg. Eric was a great dive master as was John. Denise is very high energy and obviously loves what she does.
