For our Sea of Cortez-Midriff Islands trips, most guests find that Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport is the most convenient and closest airport in which to fly to reach our port.

All passengers will be picked up at the Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport at 1pm, Terminal 4, Door 5 outside on the far side of the street. The shuttles are clearly marked Head Out To Rocky Point.
The shuttle will make at least one restroom stop along the way which is next to a grocery store should you wish to pick up snacks or beverages (including alcohol) to bring it with you on the boat. They will also stop at the border so passengers can purchase Mexico Tourist Cards.
Head Out To Rocky Point cannot pick up passengers from other locations unless everyone is at the same place (i.e. staying at the same hotel) as there just is not enough time. If you choose to stay at a hotel the evening prior, be sure to be back at the airport by 12:30 so you can comfortably get to the shuttle departure area by 1pm.
