It was quite a windy day so I expected a bit of action but the blow hole was making a bit of noise but not much was visible. Having said that I really enjoyed the walk there and back

It was interesting visiting the site. The blow holes wasn't the best the day we visited but we were still able to see the water going through the holes. Worth a visit.

I know that there was a sign at the beginning of the long walk down telling us how to determine if it was worth our time. Even then, it was a gamble. We were unlucky and there were no water to see shooting up.

From the car park to the blow holes, the wind was extremely strong. I had a hard time walking around so do be careful.

It was quite difficult to see the blow holes as they're cracks in the ground for the water to shoot up from. The area where the cracks are also quite steep so it's quite dangerous since you don't know where the water is going to shoot out from (if it does) and where the "cliff" ends.

We went to the blow holes on a very windy day. It was amazing seeing the water and wind shooting up. It made quite a loud noise. Definitely a lot of photo opportunities on the rocks as well. It's easy to sit down there and spend a while just watching the water and relaxing. I would say that going in winter is better then summer!

Long walk down to see some holes blowing... and also Eclipse Island opposite. Do it just once is ok. Climbing back up is tiring!
