The winds were up and visibility was down. 4 days before we could get a dive in. We were on the boat used mostly for snorklers. The dive was rather shallow and the biz horrible. They also rushed us out of the water. 35 minute...More

$29 per person including gear. It was unfortunate that the wind had been blowing for 3 weeks prior to our trip which stirred the water up and lowered the visibility considerably. Still could see a decent 15 feet. Capt. and crew were conscientious and courteous,...More

I booked a paddle board and snorkeling trip for my husband and daughter which ended up being a kayaking tour with no snorkeling and led by someone who had never done the tour before. Not worth it

I am wondering about safe, reasonably priced places to stay within walking distance (four or five blocks) of Captain Hooks? Hotels, motels, condos??? Also, are there restaurants within walking distance, and/or at least one decent grocery store? I'm aiming to visit in January or February, but I would rather not have to drive or worry about parking if it can be helped.
