Marathon Reef Dive Trip
Let's Dive!! Join Captain Hook’s and our experienced dive team for a morning or afternoon dive in the “Best Kept Secret In the Florida Keys for Diving.” The range of diving available to our divers is limitless, with a number of great sites with variable depths to match your level of diving experience. Patch and barrier reefs are plentiful with marine life, ledges and hidden wonders to see on each diving trip. We dive at two locations on each trip for one hour each. The dive locations are selected the day of the dive based on weather, wind conditions and visibility.
At Capt. Hooks, we provide a complimentary divemaster with each dive trip. They know the reef and the local marine residents, and they can point out the highlights on our dives. Having a divemaster in the water has helped many of our divers that have not been diving in a while to reach a higher comfort level by knowing there is someone nearby who can help. The divemaster is only there if you want to use them as a guide, it is your choice, and many of our divers explore on their own with their dive buddy.
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. Having two boats allows us to meet most customer requests and to keep families together, even if some are diving and some are snorkeling.

Special Considerations for Spearfishing
If you are interested in spearfishing and have your own spear equipment, we require a separate in-water dive guide. This is primarily for safety reasons but our guides also have a wealth of knowledge about the sport and understand the reefs and locations to find fish. If this is you, be sure to select the "Private Spearfishing Divemaster" as a part of the Extra options during the booking process. If you do not have equipment or want to learn how to spearfish, select "Spearfishing 102" under the Dive Instruction menu.
Please note: In the interest of your safety, please be aware of the following requirements.
• If it has been more than one year since your last scuba dive, you will be required to dive your first dive accompanied by one of our complementary dive guide.
• If it has been over 2 years since your last scuba dive, you will be required to take a Scuba Refresher course or Scuba Tune-Up.
Advance Purchase Recommended
Upon booking, you will receive your receipt in a email confirmation. We recommend booking in advance to ensure your space on the boat.
Booking Confirmation Info
Bring your email confirmation with you on the day of your activity, if you have booked in advance.
