How to get there - Go to the town of Andres, Boca Chica, keep going through town towards the old harbor, take the water front road past the colonial houses, towards the new harbor (if there is a new road to the new harbor, then go to the new harbor). The road will take you to La Boya, right before the new harbor. From La Boya you can cross the canal into Banzai. The waves in Banzai are clearly visible from La Boya. The crossing should be about 100-175 meters
