There are two main boat ramps in Kingston and if you have a 4WD, you can also launch off the beach. He shares information about what can be caught at various times of the year which are also found on the Primary Industries and Regions SA website with relevant permits.
“For people with larger boats, cruising up and down the coastline at sunset is always a great experience. You can hang around Lacepede Bay in calmer waters. If you are a more experienced boater, you can head over to Cape Jaffa, but take care because it can get a bit choppy and there is an exposed reef. For the more experienced boaters, you can go to Margaret Brock Reef and take a look at the original lighthouse location before it was moved to Kingston.”
