This was a blast! The staff was outstanding! This is a beautiful setting. The drinks are unlimited and the staff kept the drinks coming non-stop! One of the best values in Rocky Point!

We did the 2 hour afternoon cruise. Sailed out the bay, stopped to play in the water, cruised back. They offered beer, margaritas and micheladas included in the price of the ticket. Fun staff, clean boat. Awesome experience.
