Looe Key Snorkel Trip @ Capt. Hook's Big Pine Key
Join Captain Hook’s Dive Team for a reef snorkel in the #1 rated snorkeling destination in all of North America and #10 in the world. Looe Key is known for its beauty and abundant marine life. Because of its unique shape and varying depths, Looe Key is an excellent snorkeling site for people of all skill levels. Water clarity is mostly excellent and sea conditions are generally moderate. The reef is home to over 150 species of fish including yellowtail, angelfish, parrotfish, barracuda, sergeant majors, and moray eel. The lucky diver can also see several shark and ray species. After 7000 years of coral growth, about fifty species are present, many named for the shapes of their namesakes on land. These corals include staghorn, elkhorn, star, brain, and fire corals.

With convenient parking...you come right in, sign in and you board our dive boats right behind our dive shop on the property. With a short boat trip to Looe Key Reef, you are ready for fun!
We snorkel at two Looe Key locations on each trip for one hour each. The snorkel locations are selected the day of the snorkel based on wind conditions. If your group has a mix of snorkelers and divers, we can accommodate everyone on one boat. We have two dive boats that are especially designed for diving and snorkeling. Having two boats allows us to meet most customer requests and to keep families together, even if some are diving and some are snorkeling.
