“What is that big pile of rocks out in the water?’ Perhaps you have strolled the far end of Sandy Beach and seen the dump trucks as the build…something. This is the Home Port. An infrastructure project courtesy of the Mexican Government, the intention is to make a pier that will serve as a home port to cruise ships. So, rather than hopping on a ship in California, vacationers can leave from Rocky Point.
Because of the relatively shallow waters and big tidal swings, this thing has to go way off shore, where it is a little deeper. The needed concrete blocks get caste at a site on the flats nearby. All in all a big under taking. It currently remains to be seen which cruise ship line will make this their home, but check back. RockyPoint.com will keep you posted!
