Paradise for Kite Surfers
For great ocean lovers, one of the most interesting activities available in Rocky Point is kite surfing. Just imagine it – blazing across the mesmerizing blue seas at top speeds, with the wind pushing you across the choppy waves! You’ve got nothing else to think about, and nothing to do – there’s only you and the surf board that you’re strapped to. It’s incredibly fun, gripping that big kite as you zoom across the ocean. This is definitely one of the finest cheap things to do in Rocky Point. One afternoon you spend kite surfing will make you want to find advice on moving across the country.
Naturally, you’ll need a degree of experience to have a true adventure out at sea. But if you need any lessons, you’ll find plenty of locals ready to give you a hand at some agreeable prices. There are also advanced courses, for those who have already grasped the basics. So, what are you waiting for?
Snorkeling and Scuba diving
Really, it’s not all about what’s on the surface of the ocean or lying on the wonderful beaches of Rocky Point, there’s a lot of fun to be had below the sea as well. That’s why we definitely recommend snorkeling and scuba diving as one of the most interesting cheap things to do in Rocky Point. Once you arrive, you’ll realize that the local aquamarine waters are crystal clear, perfect for observing all kinds of intriguing marine life.
This is really an amazing thing to do, fit for people of all ages. Plus, as the tides shift, you’ll get a different view each time you take a dive. And you can be sure there is a lot to see with such a great abundance of underwater life. The geological features are also an incredible sight to see, with dazzling coves and reefs all around. Really, if you want a memorable vacation, spend a morning diving in the Sea of Cortez!
Having fun on Banana Boat Rides
If you’re traveling to Rocky Point for the first time, you may not have heard about the most affordable among cheap things to do in Rocky Point – Banana Boat Rides! This is a fun experience for the whole family, and the best of all is – when we say cheap, we do mean it. A ride costs just around $5, making it truly affordable to anyone. Just make sure to speak with the boat driver before you sail out – he’ll want to know if you prefer scenic, slow sailing or a fun choppy ride.
For people with kids, this is really the go-to activity in Rocky Point. All children enjoy the mad thrills of the Banana Boat rides. So, take your whole family to the beach, find a boat – and truly go bananas!
Kayaking across the Sea of Cortez
Speaking of the cheap things to do in Rocky Point, there’s really no list of those worth its salt that doesn’t mention kayaking. For people who love exploring the ocean, but at a slower pace than kite surfing, renting a kayak is a really great idea! The sparkling blue Sea of Cortez was simply made for a kayak trip. Just one pro tip – make sure to bring a waterproof camera with you. Sure, you may be one of the people who like to enjoy the moment more than to record it, but trust us, in this case, you’ll be sorry if you sail out without a camera on hand.
Also – we recommend going on an early morning tour. If you time your trip just right, you stand a good chance of spotting dolphins swimming around in the water! You may even be able to see them up close. You probably can’t keep up with them in a kayak, but they may decide to swim beneath you at some point.
As you can see, there are plenty of interesting cheap things to do in Rocky Point. So, if you’re up for a truly fun vacation on a budget, don’t hesitate; start planning your trip to Rocky Point at once!
