As a vacation destination, Rocky Point, Mexico, seems to have it all. Pristine water, white sand, expansive beaches, and so many attractions you’ll be scratching your head, trying to decide which ones to try out first. And since we’re talking about the beach, water sports are probably high on your vacation agenda. Rocky Point is bustling with all types of adventures related to the water. From jet skiing to scuba diving. And for the romantic at heart, don’t miss out on the twilight cruises. The panoramic views will take your breath away. Here are some of the top water activities to enjoy while you’re here in Rocky Point.

Jet Skiing

For many, jet skis are the ultimate in water adventure and thrill. You split the water surface with your jet or water ski at great speed and feel the spray on your face. That tastes like freedom. Speed and water, when combined, create a great experience. Unlike speeding on the road, the water offers an open field where there are no obstacles, and it stretches all the way to the horizon. You feel the jet ski urging you to go faster and faster. The wind whipping your hair, the taste of salty water on your lips—this is the stuff of which adventures are made. One of the best places to enjoy jet skiing in Mexico is Sandy Beach. Here you will find plenty of water sports equipment rentals from which to choose. Also, check out Cholla Bay and Playa Mirador. Both are great beaches to enjoy your favorite water sport.

Cruise at Twilight

Sunsets are notoriously romantic and beautiful. They have inspired poets and artists since time immemorial. So, when you’re looking to spend some quality time with your soul mate, there’s nothing better than going on a cruise at twilight. It’s a perfect ending to a busy day spent enjoying all the water activities on offer. Sit back and relax while the boat drifts parallel to the shore. As the sun sets and the sky turns all shades of orange and purple, the bustling seashore with its shops, restaurants, and tourists acquires the magical hues from the sky. Here it’s easy to let go and forget about time and place. The only thing that matters is your loved one close to you and that you’re both sharing this sublime moment. The cruise also offers several games and contests to keep the passengers entertained throughout the journey.


The Sea of Cortez features some of the richest fishing waters surrounding Mexico. This means that fishing is a very popular activity here both for locals and tourists alike. Fishing hotspots are abundant in Rocky Point. Whether you prefer to fish from the shore or you like deep-water fishing, there are spots you can take advantage of. Even the beach is a good fishing place with the right equipment. For best fishing results, you should time your visit to be either during the spring or summer. Both seasons attract red snappers, halibut, whitefish, black sea bass, gold-spotted bass, triggerfish and many others.

Fishing charters are also available. Cruise captains will take you to the best fishing spots and give you tips to improve your fishing skills. Deepwater fishing allows you to catch dorado, marlin, cochis, rock bass, pinto sass, sardineros and many other species. The boats have all the gear you’ll need to enjoy your fishing trip.


When the thrill of adventure calls on you, it’s time to take a daring water sport like kitesurfing. To enjoy the sport, you need the ideal wind. Luckily, Rocky Point is the perfect place for kitesurfing. There are strong tidal lagoons that create jumps and bends which will make your ride even more thrilling. Make sure to check the wind forecasts before you embark on your adrenaline-filled ride. The speed of the wind will determine if it’s safe to kitesurf on that day or not. And if you’re a beginner, it’s important to get yourself acquainted with the sport and the risks involved. You can watch online videos to give you some tips. The huge tides here can make the ride more exciting, but for the inexperienced surfer, it can pose an obstacle.

Scuba Diving

Scuba diving is a gentler and less demanding sport than many of the other sports on this list. Rocky Point is a great place to enjoy snorkeling, diving, and scuba diving. It’s known as the largest aquarium in the world, thanks in part to the moderate temperatures which create a wonderful habitat for a diverse ecosystem underwater. The crystal blue water also is another reason why you would enjoy scuba diving here. You can dive either from the beach or go on a boat which will take you to some of the most fantastic places for scuba diving in the whole of Rocky Point.
