Coastal visitors should monitor conditions before departing for any activities. Check weather, tides, currents, and above all, exercise caution in this extreme and remote environment. For coastal activities, certain points along the coast are only passable at lower tides. Do not guess. Always know when the tides will occur and plan your activities accordingly.
