If the weather permits I’m hoping to head out to the nearshore reef and possibly the capers reef on Monday or Tuesday in a 24ft Sea Fox. I have a SPOT Gps thingy, but I’m just curious if both of those reefs are in cell phone range. I know the Near-shore is about 3 miles and I would think you would have it there, but Capers is about 5-7 so i’m not so sure about that.
Just curious to know whether or not I will have to solely rely on the SPOT or if I will have the use of a cell phone as a back-up.
Yes you should have service. I’ll typically have service until two buoy sets before the c buoy. T mobile
