We spent several days here during our week long vacation as the people are awesome and the food and drinks are too. Keep your card for the next visit as it makes admission much easier! Incredible beach for swimming. Avoid it on days when cruise ships are in port.

We spent about 4 hours at the beach and had a great... More

This play is just great for families, teens and adults. So many activities to do with food, drink and music including the Boatyard's own namesake song. If you don't have fun here then there is no help for you

This place is great!!! For like 20 $ you have a lot of service, and they bring you to swim with turtles. In one week cruise this has been the best experience I had! Swimming with turtles was really amazing!!!
