“Goos scenery”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

Good scenery awaits travelers to this area but water depths can cause problems for most boats. Visitors should take a guide, have local knowledge or travel very slowly. The outside (ocean side) is a hard bottom of coral in places and the inside is mucky for the most part. A few nice beaches can be accessed from the outside but the "naturalness" of the area result in the necessity for bug spray etc. as no see-ums and mosquitoes can be thick at the right time of day, month, or year.

“don't waste your time”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

my husband and I took kayaks out there this morning. Ugly, stinky, littered with fish carcasses, dozens of vultures, and zero interesting shells. Plus a very tough paddle out, and even tougher paddle back (in no wind) because of the currents. If you have friends with a motorized boat or jet ski, sure, check it out. But otherwise, no need!

“White dome and land's end!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2012

So far and a bit risky to get there if you don't follow the buoys. We cut across on our jet skis and it was soooo shallow. Cool looking house at the Cape.

“This is the absolute best ... kayak, canoe, jetski and see the 10,000 islands”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2010

Go shelling or spend a day on a beach all by yourself. See the houses being taken over by the sea and nature.
