Onsite Activities:
Dolphin Connection: This is the only hotel or resort in the mainland U.S. that offers free public viewing of trained dolphins, and seeing them in their natural environment, an ocean-fed saltwater lagoon, is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Book one of the guided educational programs, like Trainer for a Day, or swim with the Atlantic Bottlenoses in Dolphin Discovery. The smallest kids have a blast in Dockside Dolphins, feeding and playing with their new friends without entering the water. Pure magic.

Dive Duck Key: When you’ve got the only living coral reef system in the continental U.S. at your doorstep…you just gotta dive. Explore the clear waters and encounter sea turtles, tropical fish and animals, and bright coral arrangements unique to the Keys. SCUBA lessons and excursions for all levels are available, but beginners dig SNUBA®, which uses a 20 ft hose instead of a tank. Check night dives or wreck dives off your bucket list too. Lobster diving or spearfishing for cobia and snook are popular, and trained pros ensure it’s safe and environmentally sound.

Sundance Watersports: Thrill-seekers flock here to get equipped for on-the-water excitement. Kayak to a remote island, parasail for amazing views, or Jet Ski. Take a catamaran out to Coffins Patch, a protected, pristine part of the Great Florida Reef where the water is warm and shallow. The vibrant sea creatures and the bright coral will take your breath away. Of course, an evening cruise with a champagne toast to those famous Keys sunsets is a must. Or, if you prefer your kicks on land, tour the island via Segway.

Hawks Cay Marina’s Fishing Charters: Fans of the sport will recognize this spot, the premier Florida Keys fishing destination, from the Saltwater Experience television series. Here, the best in the biz lead the charge into the Atlantic for high-flying sailfish or the shallow water flats for bonefish. A variety of guided fish expeditions will satisfy newbies to experienced fishers. After, grill your catch dockside or have your prize shipped home.

Calm Waters Spa: Adrenaline filled adventures need to be balanced with some serious relaxation, and a few hours at the spa guarantees a relaxed glow. We love the Body Bar in the Vichy Room, where we get an exfoliating scrub as warm rain showers provide a soothing backdrop. With options like the Key Lime Mojito scrub, using the resort’s own private label key lime products, who can resist?

Travel tip: People come to play, so book activities in advance to avoid disappointment, and make note of any rules and regulations. The Calm Waters Spa is also a hotspot, so lock down your treatment time early in your stay.

Offsite: The resort is only minutes from the village of Marathon where you'll find attractions, great dining, and more. Or, take a leisurely hour long drive to Key West for lively nightlife.

oTHErside Adventure Park & Keys Cable: This is cool – try wakeboarding or waterskiing without a boat. How? A two point cable system acts as an overhead towing device.

Seven Mile Bridge: Fish or stroll and take in the views from this landmark – perfect for watching the sun set or rise.

Turtle Hospital: Take a tour of this facility that protects the local turtle population. Not hands on, but informative and great for older kids.

Sombrero Beach: This popular swimming spot has white sand, picnic tables, grills, a playground, and a volleyball court.

Bahia Honda State Park: It’s 30 miles away, but offers one of the best beaches in South Florida.
