This has added multiple dive sites, another wreck called, the Adolphus Busch Sr., and a beautiful sanctuary and premier dive and snorkel site...Looe Key Reef.

We just went out with them snorkeling today. The crew was really friendly and funny. My daughter was initially very hesitant to go in the water and they took their time and explained everything to her and helped convince her. Can't say enough good stuff about the crew here and how friendly and professional they were. We found this place at the last minute since our other snorkeling cruise was canceled unfortunately an hour before launch so we were happy that we found them and we were able to go out on this beautiful day here in Marathon.

I’m a new diver with new diving kids. Scheduling with Denise went very well. Prompt responses to questions. Check-in and equipment rental was very organized. Very professional and safety-oriented on our dive, with our boat captain, and Kevin our dive master. He was very helpful and patient with my being a “rookie”. My youngest was finishing his certification with David. When the weather on our second day wasn’t conducive to offshore, David rescheduled everything on the fly to finish up his certification dives at Big Pine Key. He really worked hard to make things happen, and it all worked out great. Look forward to coming back again someday, and diving with Captain Hook’s. Thanks everyone there.

We went as a party of 11, on the 8:30 tour, hoping to spend the morning snorkeling. We left the harbor late, only went to one reef, and then turned back home due to "mother nature". We were not offered any refund, even a partial payment, and were not offered to reschedule the tour for a later date. The crew asked for tips after only one hour of our tour was complete, because they are not paid a living wage in Florida. I would NOT recommend this tour for any visiting family.

Had a Wonderful time doing my intro to Scuba course with my instructor, David. He was very professional, fun, and easy to get along with. Would highly recommend him for future customers looking to learn how to dive. I’ll be back.

Excellent family snorkeling adventure with experienced and helpful staff! The reef fish were plentiful and made us feel as though we were swimming in a tropical aquarium. Perfect for families. We had an amazing time!

Got open water scuba certified over 3 days at Captain Hook's. My instructor David had over a thousand dives under belt in all possible conditions, and was a very kind, patient, and funny guy. Scuba trips were great, no issues with gear, would recommend.

I dove with CHDC in Marathon on December 5. We hit two sites: Sombrero Reef & Ivory Coast Wreck. I enjoyed diving at both sites but this review is about the dive shop. The lady who checked us in was polite and friendly but the Gold Star goes to our dive master, Lynn. The captain and other crew members were all fantastic but Lynn was wonderful and went above and beyond.

When I got on the boat and hooked up my regulator, my SPG said that my tank only had 2400 psi. Lynn overheard me tell this to my dive buddy and said jump in and said that that was unacceptable. So she grabbed the tank and went and topped it off. It turned out that my SPG gauge was damaged and reading everything wrong.

When we figured this out, again, Lynn wasted no time and went and got me a working one from the shop and hooked it up for me.

She was also fantastic with the pre-dive briefing. And she was a chill and attentive guide in the water. She pointed out several morays.

Kudos to everyone there but Lynn was the best!! Thank you.
