Bo! it's clear water, hollow and it's regular. The downside is that you will meet at least three guys on the island who are Whitey attack victims. The Chathams is the only place Great Whites are documented hunting in packs.
If you wait around for half an hour and watch closely you might notice the 4m+ Whiteys in the bay.
Extremely remote, and raw!
