This annual week-long celebration honors the men and women who make their living on the sea. Fishing is the reason Rocky Point even exists, and every family with a history in this town has had part of their story include the Sea of Cortez.
Festivities this time include a singing contest, a fair, as well as the traditional rides offered on the Mexican Marine’s boats. The Marines are the equivalent of our Navy. The highlight of the weeks events is when a a wreath is lowered into the ocean from one of the vessels. This is done in memory of the many who have been lost in what remains a dangerous line of work.
