Thank you to all of our guests, fans and followers for your outpouring of support following Hurricane Irma. We are pleased to report that all of our staff is safe as everyone (including our beloved dolphins) was evacuated before the storm. The Hawks Cay team is busy assessing the impacts on the Resort from Hurricane Irma so we can provide an update on our reopening date.

We sincerely apologize to those of you with upcoming reservations. Please know that all cancellation policies will be waived at this time. We just ask for your patience while we process any deposit refunds. We know it’s disappointing to have to cancel a vacation, but we hope that you’ll reschedule when we reopen to experience the new and improved Hawks Cay Resort.

Thank you for your patience and support at this time.

The Resort is going to be better than ever!

    We Head Out With Two Goals –
    Have Fun and Catch Fish.

War Eagle

(877) 423-6403

We have two goals aboard the War Eagle: have fun, and catch fish. Whether you’re a beginner who has never casted a rod before, or an old salt who’s reeled in your fair share of trophies, we’ll provide a custom Florida Keys fishing experience tailored specifically to your group. If you are new to fishing, we’ll show you the ropes and teach you the techniques of the pros. We love working with kids and families, and cherish the opportunities we get to introduce youngsters to this wonderful sport. 

For beginners (and experienced anglers), you will love fishing the Florida Keys reef. The reef provides a wonderful opportunity to get accustomed to saltwater fishing, while catching a variety of tasty snapper and grouper species, and any number of big, colorful fish! For seasoned fishermen and women, the crew of the War Eagle also specializes in offshore and wreck fishing. Charters can be arranged to target dolphin, wahoo, blackfin tuna, sailfish, swordfish, mutton snapper, amberjack, cobia, and more. Whatever you want to go after, we’ll take you to them.

We have over 25 years of experience fishing in the Florida Keys, and look forward to sharing that experience with you. Welcome aboard!

About the Boat

War Eagle is a beautiful 44’ Custom Sunny Briggs that is the perfect Florida Keys fishing boat. The War Eagle offers a comfortable fishing experience on both calm and windy days, and provides a stable fishing platform while anchored on the reef, minimizing rocking from the waves.


The War Eagle is rigged with top-of-the-line fishing gear and electronics, and comes with all the comforts of home. In between fish, or while we’re running to a new spot, you can relax and cool off in our air-conditioned salon that features a large bathroom, and bunks.
