Hawks Cay Florida Keys Resort
Midway down the Florida Keys, there’s an island called Duck Key.
It’s small. Secluded. Yet central to Miami and Key West,
and easy to reach by car, boat or plane. Duck Key
has a few distinguishing Florida Keys vacation features:
Aquamarine water all around.
Glorious sunrises and sunsets.
An island sensibility that lulls you to relax –
unless you want to fish or snorkel first.
All of this and more awaits you
at Hawks Cay Resort.
View, feed, swim with – even train – Atlantic bottlenose dolphins at Dolphin Connection, our onsite dolphin research facility (the only one of its kind in the continental U.S.). Dolphin encounters for all ages, both dockside and in our saltwater lagoon, are available.
Our dock puts you within reach of a reef, the Gulf Stream, backcountry flats – and the hard-fighting, great-tasting species that inhabit them. Our expert Florida Keys fishing guides and fleet of boats can help anglers of all levels reel in that trophy catch.
Prepare to explore the only living coral reef in the continental U.S. Experienced divers, join a shipwreck or night dive; families, glimpse a rainbow of tropical fish on a guided SNUBA® excursion. Take certification and refresher courses, too.
Challenge yourself through our Cliff Drysdale Tennis® program, created by the former pro, ATP founder and ESPN analyst. Our tennis professionals will engage you in adult clinics, junior programs, round robin play and private lessons.
To experience our mangrove islands, reef and clear waters, name your speed: Take a guided tour by jet ski or kayak; board a sunset cruise (or rent your own boat); try snorkeling or stand-up paddling. Of course, you can't beat the view parasailing.
You'll be hooked the moment an island breeze lifts your kite, sweeping you across the water. Our certified instructors offer beginner and intermediate classes, plus ride-alongs for experienced boarders.
