Themed Vacation Packages

Hawks Cay Resort Salt Water Lagoon and Boat
Hawks Cay Resort’s saltwater lagoon.

Here’s a sprinkling of themed vacation packages throughout Florida—from prime fishing excursions to golf getaways, and a museum experience for culturally inclined travelers.

Hawks Cay Resort, located in the Florida Keys, is a prime fishing spot for anglers. The Hawks Cay Marina offers inshore and offshore charter boats led by local fishing captains and guides. Fishermen can reel in grouper, snapper, yellowtail, snook, permit and bonefish; during the summer months, 100- to 200-lb tarpon swim in these waters, as well as schools of mahi-mahi. The resort’s Summer Fun in the Sun package allows guests to enjoy a fourth night free, as well as daily breakfast for two at Ocean, the resort’s new Mediterranean-style restaurant. Rates start at $199 per night. For more information, call (877) 484-9342 or visit
