Hawks Cay celebrates couples throughout the year, but especially in
February. If you’re feeling romantically challenged, when you’re not
wiling away a sunny afternoon, you and your sweetheart can choose
from multiple couples’ spa treatments. At our award-winning Calm
Waters Spa, couples are pampered with romantic rituals like our various Sweetheart Packages which feature a Couples’ Tropical Breeze
Massage and Spa pedicure.
The most important thing to do to enjoy your trip to the spa is to arrive at least 30 minutes before your treatment is scheduled to begin.
This allows you enough time to change and start to relax at facilities
like the lounge, sauna, and whirlpool areas that are all coed and
ideal for couples’ to relax together.
For special meals together, start the day with an indulgent breakfast
buffet at Ocean. Lounge at our, adults-only Tranquility Pool and
allow the Beach Grill to serve you lunch and frozen cocktails. While
Hawks Cay is proud to offer many unique dining options, Alma is a
favorite among couples looking for a romantic, intimate setting.
Feeling adventurous? Hawks Cay is a destination with plenty of
adventure. Add to your couple’s to do list a Dolphin Connection
program, a fishing excursion, or the Sunset Cruise - a delightful way
to end your day. Then spend your evening enjoying local entertainment at the Fire Pit under the brilliant stars.

For the safety of our guests, we do not allow fishing from our docks.
Please ask associates at the Dockside Store about areas where you and
your guests may fish nearby.
Welcome to Hawks Cay Resort, home to some of the best fishing in the world.
Before setting out on your fishing adventure, here are a few things you should
know. Winter fishing in the Keys provides an opportunity to catch species that
aren’t as common in the summer months. You’re not as likely catch as many dolphin
(mahi mahi) as you would in July or August, but this is the prime season for doing
battle with one of my favorite fish to catch—the sailfish!
If you’ve never caught a sailfish before, you’re in for the experience of a lifetime.
Ask your captain to spend some time fishing the reef and wrecks for delicious
snapper that you can bring back to the dock and have cooked up at one of Hawks
Cay’s restaurants, and then spend some time trying to catch a sailfish. This is also the season when we
begin catching big kingfish and cobia in the Atlantic.
Inshore fishing in February is dependent on the weather. Cool water temperatures and occasional windy
days can sometimes make it difficult to catch tarpon, permit, and bonefish in the shallows, but this is a
great time to catch monster barracudas which are loads of fun on fly and light tackle. This is also the
perfect season for fishing the Florida Keys backcountry waters of Everglades National Park in search of
snook, redfish, small tarpon, trout, and more. Talk to your guide and plan your trip based on the
weather and what’s been biting best.
Stop by the Dock Office inside the Dockside Store or call ext. 1912 to book your fishing adventure.
Good luck and great fishing!
