3/4 mile paddle in shark infested waters to the island. Can see the break from the car park. Breaks very close to the rocks. Mary's rock reefs stop it from getting as big as it should.
On a good day it looks spectacular from the beach. Not many people make the paddle out. Does not hold a crowd.

- Go snorkeling out there all the time. There is about 7-8 turtles that just cruise up and down the lineup all day long.

Crazy - Took a boat out there a few days ago and there must have been a bait ball or something because there was adleast 6 sharks within 10m of eachother.
