  • SUP Rentals
  • At Hawks Cay Resort, you can launch your SUP Florida Keys experience right from our marina. We offer paddle board rentals by the hour, half- or full-day – even by the week. If you’re trying SUP for the first time, reserve one of our hour-long instructional tours. You’ll enter the water from the resort’s floating dock, kneeling or standing on the board depending on your comfort level, in approximately three feet of water. Even if you start out feeling uncertain, you’ll be standing up on your board and maneuvering within minutes – with a little practice and balance, SUP really is as accessible as everyone says it is. Once you’re confidently paddling, your instructor can demonstrate helpful strokes and different techniques for turning.

    Of course, we’ll equip you with everything you need, including a life jacket, board and paddle. If you choose to head out on your own, we’ll throw in our tips on where to locate friendly currents and unforgettable views. Pick a destination or a few – from Hawks Cay Resort, it’s a short paddle to Tom’s Island (deserted, save the mangroves) and canals embellished with luxury homes and boats. Pass under bridges, cut through channels, navigate Lake Lucille and sidle alongside the resort’s own Dolphin Connection to extend your route. Around Duck Key, you’ll encounter ample expanses with shallow depths, light traffic and minimal obstructions to make your paddle as carefree as possible. This may be the most easygoing way to do the Keys. And with waters this clear and shores this rich with scenery, sometimes it’s good to take it easy.
