We were staying at Hawks Cay in Duck Key and had been preparing to do their snorkeling tour for $45 per person. But the day we were arriving I read a review that recommended Captain Hooks. So I looked them up and found their tour was only $29 per person, so we were sold. What a great trip it was, the crew was great, the boat ride was fun, and was like 2 tours in 1 since they take you to 2 different reefs. Very much like swimming in an aquarium! Highly recommend this tour to anyone staying in Duck or Marathon.

Thank Happ y

We had an AMAZING day snorkeling today!! It was first time snorkeling for my wife & kids and we couldn't have asked for a better experience! Capt Bob, First Mate Lee & Dive Master Esteban were a fantastic crew to lead us on our excursion. Got to see all kinds of fish at 'Coffin Patch'. It was like swimming in an aquarium. Even saw a small 3ft nurse shark. Our first stop 'the Donut' was amazing too. Saw sea turtles there too. A Hawksbill (that First Mate Lee named Pancake), was extremely friendly. He surfaced right in between my son & I (and my son absolutely LOVES sea turtles). Couldn't have asked for a better experience!
Thank you to the Crew for an amazing day! 10 out of 10!!

This is the first time our family went for a snorkling adventure. My daughter -2 Eyesight problem but no problem with Captain Hook who had adapted glasses. You pay an extra for it, but it's worh the money. On board the captain provided us with cool water. We stopped at 2 different places for approximately an hour. The second place was awesome. Saw a lot of fish, no turtle... We loved the tour.
