Been several times now and will continue to do so. Beautiful beach and ocean and a fun place to go. Good food and drinks which are inexpensive. Make sure you get your free shots which are just poured down your throat by the great staff. Love this place.

Visited The Boatyard while on a cruise. Very close to the cruise port, within walking distance. $15 cover charge includes beach chair, umbrella, welcome drink, rope swing, trampoline, iceberg, dive platform, pool table, sports tv, wifi, showers, changing rooms and a ride back to the cruise port. Excellent music and choice of great food. If you prefer beer, its offered at a great price if you buy a bucket.

Our visit here was enjoyable. We were lucky enough to get a cabana which allowed us to get a little bit of shade during the hot day that we were there. The attractions, i.e. rope swing, floatable mountain and the floatable trampoline got old pretty quick, but I could see kids having a great time with it. The visitors were friendly and even got two teams to play some volleyball. You pay $40 USD and the money you use to get in gets put in a credit form that allows you to use $40 towards food and drinks. The only annoying part of this were the lovely residents who were trying to get you to purchase a banana ride, ski jet ride, jewelry, shirts, etc. under the bridge. It wasn't too bad because we got our cabana away from the bridge, but every time you walk by they asked you the same requests.

Absolutely worth a trip! The BD$40 entry fee also gets you $40 worth of credit behind the bar for use on food and drink. So effectively entry is free and your buying a $40 bar tab! What's not to like!
