ULTRA LIGHTS IN ROCKY POINT

 

If you want to see Rocky Point, "like you have never seen it before", try the Ultra Lights. Located on the dirt road leading to the Reef Club, (Reef Club is between town and Cholla Bay, on Sandy beach), you will find several Ultra Lights waiting to take you on the ride of your life. With 17 years flying experience, my pilot, Alfredo, flew from the Reef Club, down the sandy beach, past the harbor and Malecon, over the town and back to Reef Club (rides will vary). The ride lasted a full 15 minutes and offers the best view of Rocky Point you will ever see. We hope you will give it a try next time your in town.

  15 minute rides have been only $40 in the past.

Speaking from personal experience, "It is well worth it!".

This amazing event is so big, it had to be separated from the events (above). The Rocky Point Motorcycle Rally has been going strong for 6 years, making it one of the Best Events held in Rocky Point, attracting over 5,000 riders and "party goers" in 2005. We anxiously wait for November, 2006!

They are filming an special portion of this episode on the Malecon on Saturday, November 11th, from 11am to 4pm. We will try and keep you posted as to when this will air.

SEA KAYAK

 

 

Have you been wanting to Kayak on the beautiful Sea of Cortez? Do you have an "itch" to see some Dolphins close up? Well, you can do just that! Kayaks are available for rent in the Old Port. Kayak rentals are available across the street from the Church & Thrifty Ice Cream. If you drive through the Fish and Shrimp Market (Malecon area), past the Vina Del Mar Hotel, and head back toward town, you will drive right to the Kayak rental. If you don't have a truck to transport the kayak to the ocean, Jeff can help you with that. He can arrange a drop off and pick up time for you. "Those who Kayak in the early morning, before all the boats invade the water, are more likely to see Dolphins than all the land lovers....         (just a thought.)

To contact Jeff or Audrey to set up your Kayak rental, Call 011-52-638-38-36209


 

BANANA BOAT RIDES

 

 

Are you looking for something fun for you and the kids to do, but you don't want to spend a lot of money? We can recommend the many Banana Boats all around the beaches in Rocky Point. You can take a slow, casual ride with the kids, or "kick it up a notch", and run wild on the Sea of Cortez. The Banana Boat ride usually only cost $5 per person. "That is a ton of fun for very little money", and it's well worth it.

BOAT RENTALS

 

 

 

 

 

No Joke! You can rent your own 16 to 20 foot boat in Rocky Point, anywhere from 1 to 8 hours, and have the best time you have ever had. If you want a Guide to take you on your first trip, they can arrange that in advance, if you give them a call. "I imagine their are some people who are a bit nervous about taking a boat out on the ocean, by yourself, for the first time. We know how you feel, because my wife and I felt the same way... Until now! I, (Shea), am the biggest wimp when it come to trying something new. Trust me! Even so, my wife and I have taken the Rocka Point Rental out twice now, both time, by ourselves; No Guide or Driver. We have conquered our fears and found out how fun it is to rent a boat by yourself!! "Now, we want to rent a boat on every trip we take!" Its a nice feeling to be able to take a boat ride, relax and get away from EVERYONE, if you so desire."

OYSTER FARMS

 

 

 

Hey, all you Oyster Lovers out there. Have we got a "hot" tip for you! Yes, It's true. Rocky Point has Oyster Farms, outside the Las Conchas area. My wife and I drove for 10 minutes down a dirt road (a little better for trucks than cars) in our Ford Escort and found some of the freshest Oysters we have ever tasted. Carlos, the gentleman who served us, went right out to the low tide and pulled out a basket of fresh oyster. As he began to shuck the oysters open, he told us about the history of his farm, where he gets the baby seeds, and how long the oysters take to grow. He also showed us the mesh bag with the little oyster seeds that will grow into beautiful, healthy oysters some day. Carlos knows a lot about being an Oyster Farmer, and he has some tasty Oysters waiting for you! The whole experience was wonderful from beginning to end, and the oysters were the best ever!

How much were they, you ask? We had 12 fresh oysters for $4.

CEDO is the premier environmental organization in Rocky Point. For over 20 years, this bi-national non-profit institute has been working for the benefit of the Sea of Cortez, the coastal Sonoran Desert, and the people of the region.

Recently, in late 2006, CEDO has come under siege from new developers who do not respect anyone but themselves. They have brought in their large machinery and destroyed the surrounding land around CEDO, making it extremely difficult for them to hold classes and continue their Eco tours. Please contact CEDO before your travel dates, to ensure that they are still hosting events in 2006, and again starting in 2007.

CEDO sponsors a variety of educational and Eco-adventure activities in Rocky Point. To receive more information about any of these events, you can contact them at: info@cedointercultural.org
