FLORIDA KEYS WATERSPORTS, RENTALS, AND CRUISES AT THE HAWKS CAY MARINA

Welcome to our island paradise where sparkling aquamarine waters kiss the South Florida sunshine! Solé Watersports is your family-friendly ticket to explore beautiful Caribbean waters! Our excursions depart from the small, secluded island of Duck Key where we proudly operate from the acclaimed Hawks Cay Resort Marina. Enjoy a snorkel tour to the Great Florida Barrier Reef and swim among abundant tropical fish and corals. Our favorite spot is the shallow patch reefs of the Coffins Patch Protected Sanctuary Area. Another local gem is the Grassy Key Sandbar! Take in a leisurely swim or unwind and relax in the shallow waters with crystal white sand below. A great escape after a reef snorkel! Can’t get enough? Celebrate the end of a day and watch the tropical sun melt into the horizon as you enjoy great tunes and a variety of libations. Solé Watersports has a menu of premier excursions to fit whatever your group or family desires. Unlike most operators, we offer both group and private excursions with many boat choices. You can trust us to have the cleanest, most well-maintained boats, friendly professional crew members, and US Coast Guard certified captains. We look forward to having you onboard and seeing you in paradise!
