Boat entry, rough launches, lots of charters to choose from. Always early morning starts
Selection of reefs: 2 mile, 5 mile, 7 mile and 9 mile - these are the distances from shore (boat ride).
Varying depths, lots of variety of reefs, amazing marine life.
Viz can be an issue as the current and swell can pick up considerably with changing winds etc., but always a challenge and lots of fun. Not for the faint-hearted.
