At certain times of the year, we will spot whales and other marine animals, and bigger sharks that pass through these waters.
Our steel cage is moored about 3 miles offshore, and sharks naturally approach it due to the crab boats that often drive by (easy food pickings for them). Visibility is sometimes over 150 feet, so you will have the clearest water experience, watching these predators come up from the deep.
