Visitor Reviews of Cutty Wow Reef
“Cutty Wow is a piles of jagged boulders 1.5 miles south of Goosewing Beach; it's breaks in 50' of water, so quick 'slab' drop and cover....no more than 30 yd. ride if right connects to 2nd set of boulders to n.......left just acid drop ,then dies.....offshore winds blow you to Dover, Great-White migratory route, dumb-ass lobstermen leave their gear their for you to drown in, smugglers tie up drugs to be picked up for Fall River.....Whitey, Mark, Chip first pulled us into wave w/ skiff as breaks so fast, hardly paddleable. Miniatur Elbow without the gansett' shleps! Much better possibilities along S. Dartmouth peninsula's if looking feral!”
