Balboa Beach is Home to the Shipwreck Balboa


Balboa Beach is very near the dock where cruise ship tender boats bring passengers to shore. The sign standing on the small downtown waterfront property is often used as a frame for photographing cruise ships. What many passengers don't know is that the beach is named for a shipwreck located in the harbor waters. Because of cruise ship traffic, most cruisers never have a chance to dive to the Balboa as the waters are too busy during daytime hours.

Do you enjoy tender ports?

I used to think it was really fun to get on a tender boat to get to shore. After 35+ cruises, I now often see it as a time constraint ... I sometimes can't get to shore as quickly as I would like to explore the port city! Many of the Caribbean cruises that we have taken have spent a port day in George Town, Grand Cayman. It's a very popular cruise ship port and often has multiple cruise ships all tendering their passengers to shore. (This photo was taken in 2019 with the Balboa Beach sign framing our cruise ship, Celebrity Reflection.)

Notable Quote

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in you sail. Explore. Dream. Discover. - Mark Twain
