Florida Keys SCUBA Diving

Some of the best scuba diving in the Florida Keys can be found in Duck Key. Nowhere else is the Great Florida Reef so accessible for both novice and experienced divers than at Hawks Cay Resort.

SCUBA Diving Vacations at Hawks Cay

When it comes to SCUBA diving vacations, Hawks Cay has you covered. Beginners can get their feet wet in an intro class in our heated pool while advanced divers can choose from a variety of programs, including nitrox and rescue certification, navigation and deep-dive electives (as part of our advanced certification course) and specialty excursions such as lobster dives and spearfishing. We also offer refresher courses and check-out dives for divers who are between levels. All of our instructors are certified professionals, eligible to certify students to PADI, NAUI and Universal Referral standards.

Additional Information

All SCUBA diving trips are two tank trips, and each dive on the trip is 50 minutes. Each course includes training materials, dive gear and supplies. Travelers ages 8 and up can accompany you on our dive boat, the Seafari, to launch their own SNUBA diving adventures along the Great Florida Reef. Traveling companions of all ages may choose to simply enjoy the cruise in anticipation of the stories and photographs you’ll surface with.

Log your first dive–the one you’ll never forget–with a resort course (which teaches you to dive in a day) or as part of our full Open Water Certification Course. Or, choose our most popular dive—exploring the reef just five miles offshore. Other Florida Keys experiences include guided spearfishing trips, lobstering, snorkeling and more.
