Swim with Dolphins

Swim with dolphins in their natural environment.

Nature lovers will find Hawks Cay Resort to be a premier destination for outdoor fun including things like swimming with the dolphins, diving, or Keys fishing.

If you’re looking for water sports, you’ll find that too with kiteboarding, kayaking, paddleboarding, snorkeling, and more. And when you’re ready to do nothing but lay back and enjoy the sunshine, it’s perfect for that, too.

Dolphin Educational Program

Programs available for all ages.

Dolphin Connection

Guests at Hawks Cay Resort in the Florida Keys enjoy a one-of-a-kind opportunity onsite at the Dolphin Connection. It’s the only hotel/resort in the mainland U.S. to offer free public viewing of trained dolphins.

Guests experience a unique chance to personally encounter bottlenose dolphins in their natural environment with a program located in an ocean-fed saltwater lagoon. This lagoon serves as “home” to a pod of friendly dolphins.

It’s a great way to interact with these highly intelligent animals and learn about protecting Florida’s marine ecosystem at the same time. A variety of educational programs are available for adults and kids. Check their website for details regarding fees and age restrictions.


Hawks Cay Diving

Hawks Cay’s professional dive team makes this resort one of the best for SCUBA diving in the Florida Keys.

Explore the only living coral reef system in the continental United States and enter another world where you’ll have the opportunity to see sea turtles, a variety of tropical fish and more than 1,000 other interesting underwater creatures, along with bright coral arrangements.

Diving opportunities are available for all skill levels, so be sure to contact the resort for more information if you’d like to experience a SCUBA diving vacation.

Keys Fishing

Hawks Cay is also home to NBC Sports “The Saltwater Experience,” and is an ideal destination for anglers from beginners to experts. Whether you choose to try your hand at deep sea fishing to battle high-flying sailfish in the Atlantic or prefer fishing the flats for world-record bonefish, Hawks Cay is a premier Florida Keys fishing destination.

The Hawks Key Hotel and Resort is located on 60 acres, and has 177 guest rooms as well as 225 two- and three-bedroom villas, a full-service marina, five restaurants, five swimming pools, and much more including the award-winning Calm Waters Spa.

If you’re looking for a nice blend of plenty to do in a beautiful tropical setting, Hawks Key has everything you’re looking for.

    I did this once in Cuba and when the time came for me to come face to face with a dolphin, it got kind of scary! They are BIG animals — bigger than humans! I did get nervous but it was a thrill to do it.
