I've been VERY fortunate to have visited these islands for probably most years of the last 10 or so years maybe 15 or so occasions - sometimes for work, sometimes for play - sometimes by boat sometimes by plane..or helicopter.

Last year 2005, my eldest lad lived here for 4 months of the Island Rock Lobster season..(March to June inclusive!).

I took our boat over with the family for a couple weeks in May - and then flew home leaving the boat on the mooring there for the young feller to have a play with, of an afternoon when he got home from cray fishing.

I flew back at the end of the season (June) and we drove the boat back home to Geraldton in 6 meter swell with a 1 meter sea on top..

There is no place on earth I've fished as good as this (possible exceptions, DHI in Shark bay, Burrup Penninsular, Flying Foam Passage, Delambre / Legendre Islands etc etc..

But - If I had a "choice" of somewhere to take the boat to fish this would be it!.
