Weather & Tides

The bar is notorious for its ability to take the lives of the unwary, disrespectful or foolish boaties – always, always wear a lifejacket when crossing this bar out to the open ocean. If at all possible it is advisable to talk to a local about crossing the bar, or even better arrive at low tide to ensure you observe the nature and direction of the bar channel before leaving on your fishing adventure.
