Dockyard gem for cruise ship passengers
The new Black Bay Beach & Park concession has opened for business at Dockyard, providing another attraction for the thousands of cruise passengers in the area.
Black Bay, owned by entrepreneur Vic Ball, will offer snorkelling around the scenic chain of beaches, and will also rent hammocks, inflatables, chairs and umbrellas. Food and drinks will also be available.
Black Bay, an alternative to Snorkel Park, adjoins Sea Glass Beach just before the main entrance to the Dockyard.
But Mr Ball said he will be sure to request visitors don’t take the natural sea glass.
