There is little known about this island. Surfline claims the left point breaks for 300 yards all the way under the bridge. It supposedly rarely breaks, but looks like it has potential to produce some of the best swell the east coast has to offer.
I started this spot to hopefully gain information about it. I want to take a trip but need information on access...etc
not worth unless its a cranking SE swell....closing out in vb status

sharks!! - i went here during hurricane bill (august 09) and the waves looked good but there were sharks everywhere! i always heard rumors but they aren't rumors.. we saw some big boys swimming around and decided that it wasn't worth getting snacked on...

it pays to wait - I was flying into Norfolk last September and flew over this break, it looked liked it was working. While driving across the bridge tunnel to the Eastern Shore I stopped to check it out. It WAS working! I only checked it for a few moments...I didn't want to get busted stopping on the bridge. It was only about 4-5 feet but it was perfect with the winds blowing off shore...Damn wish I could surf there.

fishermans to Nautalius shoal - I was fishing out at the shoal Sat jul 12th 2008. Fishermans island was definatly going off. But there is another break offshore fishermans island on nautilus shoal. It was a beautiful swell. I wished I had my board. Im planning on going back. Its only accesible by boat.
