My family and I spent the morning aboard Captain Dave's boat with mate Jenny. Both were very friendly and helpful. Especially with my mother who is in her mid 70's. This was her first time snorkeling and was unsure. Once she calmed down, she enjoyed herself. The reef was beautiful and full of fish. The only bad point had nothing...

My wife and I went out and suffered an illness and the staff was very caring to our situation and very helpful to us. We appreciate the way they handled our situation greatly! We would certainly use all of their services in the future! Thank you for all your understanding and thoughtfulness!

There is virtually no facade to the "hideaway" except for a little sign. Check-in cabin is a little shack. We were in the Snapper 1 bed room with nice living room and dining room overlooking the fishing boats and marina. Beautiful sunset. Great ambiance. The room decor and surrounding area gave you the impression of really living in the keys;...

Booked for 1 night and room had everything we needed. Manageress (from Lincolnshire) very welcoming. Breakfasted on the patio with a great view over the water. Impromptu evening snorkel trip to Sombrero Reef was the highlight of our 3 day visit to the Keys with fizz and nibbles watching the sunset.

We set out for a fun day of snorkeling with our party of 16. We had Captain Ray and First Mate Kim. Kim was so comforting to my niece when she was suffering from her nerves as a first time snorkeling. She was so good with the kids. She made every effort to make our family feel comfortable throughout the...

This was the last of our snorkelling trip in Florida and the worst. I cannot fault the organisation and professionalism of the crew (Dave and Lisa) BUT the snorkelling was awful.We went out to Sombrero Lighthouse - an area with an excellent reputation but we stopped well away from the lighthouse in water that was too murky and too deep...

We are sorry that you did not enjoy your snorkel trip with us onboard Spirit. All boats must tie up to the mooring buoys and cannot always change spots mid snorkel. Usually the visibility is very good & there is lots to see at the reef - beautiful coral & fish. Some days the current is minimal and some days...

A true hideaway, tucked back off the main road. Great location, close to restaurants and bars. Our room had a nice water view and was very comfortable and the ac worked really well. The bathroom was very nice and updated, but the rooms are a little outdated, and have minimal kitchenette areas. It is a nice change from the hotel...

Writing this sat out by the hotel's pool, watching the boats in the bay. Husband and I stayed in the Looe Key room and it's been lovely. We're sorry to be leaving tomorrow! Captain Pip's in quintessential Florida Keys. Kitschy, beachy, welcoming and fun. The rooms aren't the sterile, identical plain white boxes that you'll find at a Marriott or...

This place rules, hands down. Sure you can go stay at the big chain places and be boring or you can stay here at Captain Pips and enjoy your time in the Keys. From check-in until check out, the staff, the grounds, everything has been awesome. From the road honestly I was a bit skeptical, but once Ellie in the...

This was a great experience. We took our 2 kids (ages 7 and 10) on the snorkeling trip and we all had a great time. It was a family friendly experience and we felt very safe and felt that the captain was watching out for all of the snorkelers at the reef. They had noodles for flotation for the kids...
