question for the waroora experts

 hi I am in coral bay fishing at the moment and I was wondering what the passage is like with a bit of swell.

I was thinking about going down inside the reef and then heading out to get a more comfortable ride.

What amount of swell can you get through safely on and would someone have the coordinates please.

Thanks

I am not sure that you can actually get down to Waroora on the inside. I've been down a fair way but then you run into shallow foul ground. I would also be interested to hear if anyone else has done this.

Tried exploring that way in my dinghy a couple of years ago and it turns shallow about half a Nautical Mile south of South passage.

yes it becomes almost impassable down there inside the reef, good tinny fishing for spangleds, trevs and of course sharks.
