“An Outstanding Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 November 2012

We really enjoyed our stay at Captain Pip's. The rooms were quaint and rustic, lending to a charming atmosphere. Everything looked clean and welcoming. After the bustle of touring Key West, it was so good to relax and hang out at Porky's where we felt right at home. The fried Key Lime Pie was a favourite. The live entertainment was superb and put us at ease. If we ever come back, this will be a place to come back to. We want to thank everyone there for a most memorable experience!

My wife and I have been vacationing in Marathon for 20 years. When we found Captain Pip's about 8 years ago, we have never stayed anyplace else. We have never been disappointed with anything (except bad weather) in all of those years. We have enjoyed our relationships with everyone at the resort, Barb, Ellie, Johnny, the guys in the marina, and even the folks at Porky's. We have stayed in several different rooms over the years and really love that they are so clean and "old Keys comfortable". As for the boats, just realize that they receive heavy use and sometimes abused by folks that are nautically challenged. The guys in the marina are always quick to respond if there is a problem and can often give some "fishy" advice on good spots. We will continue to return every year for as long as we can hold a fishing pole or strap on a scuba tank.

Great service, advice and friendly people! The four of us spent two days snorkeling and fishing. The boats ran smoothly. We had good directions to locate snorkel spot and fishing on our second day. The people were so friendly!

If you come to the Keys you have to get on the water! Whether you want to captain your own boat or go with a guide, Captain Pip's is the place. They were friendly and helpful telling us the best places to snorkel or fish. We did both and had an awesome time. After a day on the water, enjoy a great meal at Porky's next door. Great food and live music!

I rented a boat from Capt. Pips for a day snorkeling/fishing/boat touring day. Ellie in the office was very helpful! Ellie had a great chart and took her time expelling to us how to use the chart and where to go to fish and snorkel. Jamie, at the dock was very helpful showing us how to use the boat, GPS, and depth finder. He also help us tie off when we returned for the day. Very good experience!!

Room Tip: Did not stay in any of the rooms.

We just got back from our third trip to Captain Pip's. We always feel like we're visiting family they make you feel so welcome. The rooms may not be fancy, but they are always spotless and comfortable. Their boats are well maintained and the marina staff always goes the extra mile. Our first two trips it was just my son and i. This trip we brought my twin ten year old grand son's an they loved it. We bought very expensive passive life preservers for the boys so they could wear them all day and still be cool and comfortable. To make a long story short we left the boys life preservers on the dock at Captain Pip's and didn't realize it until we got home an unloaded the car. I called up about four hours later and someone ran down to the dock and called me back and they found them. They sent them to us and we had the in a couple days. None of us can wait till we go back.

, Manager at Captain Pip's Marina & Hideaway, responded to this review, 24 June 2012
Sometimes when you are packing up your things after a vacation something can be left behind in your room. We've all done it at some time! Here at Captain Pip's our manager has always sent those things along to our guests as soon as possible. We have sent items varying from clothing to jewelry, medications, check books & even money! In this case it was life preservers. We're happy to do it for our guests. Thank you for the kind words & the great review. We really do appreaciate the feedback!
