Lobster Lob! August 3, 2015
During the Florida Lobster mini-season this week, 58 Hawks Cay guest lobster hunters participated in our first annual Lobster Lob. The object was to clean each lobster and then “lob” the carcass at our lobster cornhole style board for a chance to win a two night three day return stay at Hawks Cay Resort. Eleven year old Grant Douglas was the grand prize winner. Grant and his parents were very excited and looking forward to their return trip to Hawks Cay. Pictured is Dockmaster Ed Kinkelaar presenting Grant a certificate for his two night stay at Hawks Cay while Grant’s father, Joe looks on.
Looking Good! July 10, 2015
If you have enjoyed a visit to Hawks Cay Marina recently, you have seen some big enhancements in the works. The Dockside Store got a beautiful remodel in late 2014, complete with an upgrade of products offered. Much anticipated building of Anglers and Ale Restaurant is underway, the first phase of dock renovations is nearing completion. If you haven’t cruised in to see us, come take a look at what’s new.
Thank You for Making Our Holiday a Blast! July 8, 2015
To all our boating friends who shared their July 4th weekend with us at Hawks Cay Marina, we just want to say Thank You! It was a blast!
Yellowfin Again! July 1, 2015
Hawks Cay Marina was thrilled to welcome Yellowfin again this past weekend. This yearly visit is a perfect match for us as Yellowfin emphasizes the family fun of boating, and Hawks Cay Resort and Marina is the perfect place for families and fun! We look forward to seeing our great friends from Yellowfin again in 2016!
Thank You FRLA June 15, 2015
Hawks Cay Resort and Marina had the honor of hosting the FRLA Monroe Chapter Fishing Tournament June 11, 2015. Anglers on 22 charter boats and 2 private vessels headed out for quarry ranging from Mahi Mahi to Snapper, from Bonefish to Sharks in an event that included both a Weigh Division and a Release Category. Thank you to all sponsors, anglers, captains, and FRLA and Hawks Cay staff for making this event a great one!
Goodbye, Thank You, and Hello! June 2, 2015
May was a busy month and we ended it with a flurry of boating activity. Many of you allowed us to share in your Memorial Weekend celebrations, and we thank you for that honor. Then MarineMax Naples joined us followed immediately by Galati Yachts. No time for sad goodbyes, however, as we will greet MarineMax Naples again and see our many year friends from RCASF for a great tournament all before the first week of June passes! And that is just the start of another great summer at Hawks Cay Marina!
ECA 2015 May 25, 2015
Hawks Cay Resort and Marina was thrilled to host ECA for its annual fishing tournament May 16. Fishing was great, but as always the best part was sharing a good time with friends in a beautiful setting. Congratulations to all for a successful event, and we look forward to 2016!

Tarpon Reflections May 8, 2015
Sometimes you just need a new perspective. Take this photo for example. It was made on a gorgeous tropical day, and there is no doubt that looking out over the marina would have been a fine way to spend the day, but sometimes the best life has to offer is right at your feet. So next time you're strolling the docks at Hawks Cay Marina, don't forget to get a new perspective and look down!
Gemaire - What a Difference a Week Makes May 7, 2015
Gemaire round two, May 2, faced a whole new set of weather rules! Anglers braved the increasing winds with the morning participants getting off a bit lighter than the afternoon crowd. Fish were there to be caught, but you really had to earn them! Thank you for fishing with us again this year. We look forward to 2016!
Gemaire-Waiting for Round Two May 1, 2015
Our wonderful friends from Gemaire are at it again.Round one was April 25, and fishing was great! Can round two top it? Keep an eye out to see how the May 2 round of fishing goes. Whichever week is tops, we love Gemaire and look forward to more fun and competition in 2016!
Someone Knows How to Start His Day! April 13, 2015
This fellow certainly had the front row seat to Sunrise in Paradise at Hawks Cay Marina this morning! Kind of makes you want to join him, doesn't it?
The Sun Sets on Another Great Month March 31, 2015
Thank you to all our friends who shared their families' spring breaks with us! March has been a whirlwind of marina activity from the first Hot Tarpon Bite to the Cobia show inside the reef, from the end of many Winter Boaters' extended stays with us to the first hint of Florida Boaters season. As the sun sets on another great month here at Hawks Cay Marina, we can't wait to see who the April tides bring our way!
Friday the 13th and All Is Well March 13, 2015
Those of you lucky enough to wake up to sunrise at Hawks Cay Marina this morning can't think Friday the 13th is anything but wonderful. Boat in to beautiful sunrises, warm days, festive nights and tropical bliss. Join us at Hawks Cay Marina and take a true Spring Break!
It's Baaack! March 7, 2015
Feeling chills up and down your spine? Brainfreeze haunting your thoughts? Oh no! Fishface is back! Ben (with brother Aaron cheering him on) and Peter didn't quite beat the clock, but they tied for Brainfreeze and a big effort. Join us at 2pm on the water side of the Dockside Market every Saturday in March (if you dare)
Moonlight and Great White March 7, 2015
We shared a beautiful full moon photo already this week, but this one is too special to keep to ourselves. Dockhand Rickey caught the perfect shot of the moon hovering over Hawks Cay's famous Great White Shark. Don't you wish your workplace had views like this?
Moon Over Hawks Cay March 3, 2015
Another perfect day in Paradise ends with a beautiful evening at Hawks Cay Marina. It doesn't get much better than this!
Chillin Keys Style February 20, 2015
So we had one night of what full-time Keys residents call winter. I'll bet if you are seeing this from anywhere else in the country, you wish this was how you "Chill" in February! Today we are back in the mid 60's with gorgeous sunshine, and tomorrow will be even warmer.
Ft Myers Offshore January 31, 2015
Ft Myers Offshore took advantage of the gorgeous sea conditions Friday, and boated into Hawks Cay Resort and Marina. Their high-performance vessels livened up our marina, and group members enjoyed our 60 acre property and surrounding waters on Saturday. They depart Sunday, but we look forward to seeing them again.
Ending the Month with Brain Freeze January 31, 2015
We snuck one last Fish Face in this January, and had 2 divisions of brain-freeze-braving competitors. Kameron and Hunter were nearly a photo finish in the 12 and over division, with Kameron just slurping out the win. Kylie and Cole didn't quite beat the buzzer, but Kylie was oh so close to win the under 12 slot.
