This place has it all. Lots of water fun, even fires, and amazing food. This was a tourist attraction and I was shocked at the good prices and food portions.

Boatyard was recommended to us by many friends, but we were worried it was going to be a bit of a tourist trap. Tourist trap it may be, but in my opinion it was worth it! $60 BBD each gave us $45 back in credit...More

Amazing place, great value for money... the snorkelling included in the price is good and the inflatables are great fun... the happy hours are regular but they need to widen the options, only 2 drinks included isn’t ideal but good enough. Would go back
