Ah well, Coffee Bay usually gets the activity with bad viz. There are many rivers flowing into the sea which adds a lot of stuff into the water. This is the clean water was very mixed at best with the activity north of you. We had a few days of 15m viz but not much action. If you read my report, there may be a reason to how and why they bypassed you. It also pays to read up on the operators as everyone tries to be smart. Once you average out the days where the visibility is good and the proximity to action there are only a few places along the coast worth working from. Otherwise, you'll be like that BBC crew which put in 3 weeks because some guy sold them sardine baitballs in April with Bryde's whales and penguins... except it was all anchovies and in mud viz. Opps!
