GET HOOKED AT HAWKS CAY RESORT
Posted March 24, 2014
Florida Keys resort offers world-class fishing alongside acclaimed anglers for first-time fishermen to experts
DUCK KEY, Florida – March 24, 2014 – As one of the most well-known and sought-after fishing destinations in the world, the Florida Keys attracts novice and seasoned anglers alike for that once in the lifetime catch. According to Captain Rich Tudor, an acclaimed fisherman and host of the Saltwater Experience television show, Hawks Cay Resort is the best place in the Keys to get “hooked” on all the inshore and deep sea fishing action.

“The Keys has an interesting geography that just attracts the fish to come through here, and I think we have some of the best and most fun fishing in the world,” said Tudor. “Hawks Cay is an incredible place where people can fish for the first time or hone their skills. It’s the only place in the Southeast where guests can have a true resort destination experience with the benefit of having a marina at their doorstep with world-class guides.”

Situated in the lower-middle Keys on the secluded island of Duck Key, Hawks Cay offers guests easy access to some of the most desired inshore and offshore fishing in the region. Popular among professional fisherman as well as groups for family outings and even bachelor parties, fishing charters at Hawks Cay are the resort’s number one attraction.

“There is a real hunger out there for people to learn something new,” continued Tudor. “Whether it’s an eight year old who has never fished before or a salty fisherman looking to fine-tune his skills, this is one of those unique opportunities where someone can truly learn something new and create an experience that will be remembered forever, like reeling in a shark or catching dinner for the family.”

Fishermen at Hawks Cay have their choice of tranquil backcountry fishing or thrilling offshore excursions. With nearly perfect weather year-round attracting some of the most fun to catch species in the world, guests can cast a line any time for grouper, snapper, yellowtail, snook, permit and bonefish. However, the late spring through summer months mark the most popular time of the year as the 100 to 200 pound tarpon come through by the millions and the schools of mahi-mahi stir things up in the deep water. Plus the warm weather signals the arrival of calm days with more consistent fishing.

Guests have access to 12 offshore /reef and backcountry/flats charters out of Hawks Cay marina, which all offer half- and full-day charters. Fishing excursions can be booked through reservations at (877) 484-9342 or the marina dockside office for same and next day charters.

Shot and based out of Hawks Cay Resort, Saltwater Experience is one of the top-rated fishing shows on cable. Airing on NBC Sports Outdoors, Destination America, Sun Sports and the Sportsman Channel, Captains Rich Tudor and Tom Rowland take viewers on a weekly adventure through the areas surrounding the resort.

HAWKS CAY RESORT COMPLETES MILLION DOLLAR CULINARY EXPANSION
Posted March 8, 2013
New Restaurants Tempt Travelers’ Taste Buds While Classic Favorites Add Island-Style Sophistication
DUCK KEY, Fla. – February 26, 2013 – Hawks Cay Resort in the Florida Keys has completed phase one of a million dollar culinary update including the opening of two restaurants on-property, as well as two smaller food and beverage outlets for cocktails and coffee. These new culinary offerings are just the beginning of a larger hotel renovation that will transform the AAA Four Diamond Award resort property into Florida’s premier vacation getaway.

Guests seeking a buffet breakfast, á la carte lunch or a Mediterranean-inspired dinner will be delighted with the addition of Ocean, the Resort’s new main dining room. Adjacent to the Resort Pool, Ocean features a stone slab pizza oven and a spacious design that embraces the coastal feel of the Resort’s location on Duck Key. Whether sampling a creative cocktail and wine list under the vaulted ceiling inside or sharing fresh seafood and flatbreads on the patio near the Fire Pit, guests will find that Ocean is the perfect dining destination for a memorable, interactive meal with the family or friends. Additional menu items at lunch and dinner include fresh oysters and clams, homemade pastas and signature pizzetas.

At Tio’s Cantina, a new dockside outpost located at the Resort’s marina, diners will find Mexican-inspired meals with a Florida Keys twist. Tio’s invites guests to unwind with fresh shrimp ceviche, mahi-mahi tacos and frozen Key lime margaritas after a long day on the water. Those wishing to cook up “the fish that didn’t get away” can take advantage of the Hook and Cook option, allowing the chefs at Tio’s to prepare the day’s catch according to each guest’s preference.

Also included in the first phase of the renovation, which launched last spring, was the addition of the Tiki Bar and Island Time. Located, adjacent to the Resort Pool off the main lobby, Tiki Bar serves up refreshing island-infused concoctions and light poolside fare. Also open in the evening, Tiki Bar is the perfect spot for a late night libation to enjoy the Fire Pit or nightly entertainment under the stars. Island Time is a new lobby café and gift shop featuring Starbucks-blended beverages and fresh pastries, making it a great stop for guests who opt for a light breakfast and cup of coffee before heading out on the water.

Set to be complete later this year, phase two upgrades will enhance the experience of the adults-only area. The private area, which now includes the Tranquility Pool lined with private cabanas, will be expanded and soon welcome Sand Bar, an alfresco restaurant in the sand serving up sophisticated light bites and specialty island-style cocktails. Whether in search of peaceful relaxation or lively cocktail conversation, the adults-only area will surely offer a serene respite for those over 21.
In addition to the new and expanded dining outlets, Resort guests can still enjoy Alma, an intimate Florida Keys dining experience in a relaxed, upscale restaurant atmosphere.
