Hawks Cay Resort, Duck Key, FL
Hotel Kids’ Program: Camp Hawk, for kids ages 5 through 12, offers activities like nature hikes, scavenger hunts, swimming in the resort’s two pools, snorkeling and kayaking in the resort’s saltwater lagoon, and feeding tarpon from the marina’s dock. Teens (ages 12 through 17) can sign up for AquaJam, a three-day camp that includes an intro to scuba diving, a dive at the reef, sailing lessons, and a snorkeling trip. A half-day program starts at $38, while a room for four starts at $149.
Setting: Hawks Cay, dedicated to the life aquatic, sits on the northeast corner of the Atlantic-facing Duck Key, halfway between the Florida mainland and Key West.
For the Whole Family: Choose from activities that allow you to swim with bottlenose dolphins in the saltwater lagoon, do a meet-and-greet that doesn’t involve swimming, or immerse yourself in a three-hour, in-water session with the dolphins and their trainers.
