Why We're The Best in the Keys


The Captain Hook’s Difference…

Since the 1950s, Captain Hook’s Marina & Dive Center has been the place to get everything you need for a day on the water. Charters for fishing, diving, snorkeling, dive instruction and certification; bait and tackle; scuba equipment and air tanks; boat rentals; snacks and beverages—we have all the supplies you’ll need to enjoy an area celebrated for world-class fishing, diving and all water sports. We are conveniently located oceanside on the Overseas Highway at the Vaca Cut bridge (MM53), which puts us just minutes from Marathon’s incredible reef and prime fishing waters.

We have added another location!  We are now in Big Pine Key!

We are located at mile marker 29.5, bayside in Big Pine Key. If you are a diver or a snorkeler, we have added one of the most beautiful reefs in the Keys for you to dive.  It has added a new dimension to our business because often when we can not get out due to weather conditions or visibility in Marathon, we can in Big Pine Key.  Looe Key is large enough that it offers protection from all sides of the reef increasing the probability of making a run to the reef.

We also work with our Marathon operation to make sure we get you out on the ocean, if there is anyway possible to do that.  Having two locations and 4 dives boats gives up a lot of capability other dive shops just don’t have.

Let Some Insiders Hook You Up!

Think of us as your concierge in the Keys—besides charters, we’ll help arrange your hotel rooms, transportation between hotel and marina, take you to the best fishing waters and show you how to catch different fish. Maybe you’re looking for the perfect picnic spot or recreation area for family fun; or you want to know where the food is good (and where it’s not!). Whatever your travel or vacation needs are while you’re in the Keys, Captain Hook’s can help.
