Default 2019 Jones Beach Air Show

Anyone here been to the air show by boat? Ocean side or Zach's Bay? Do you get a much better view from the ocean side? For Zach's, how early do you have to get there to beat the traffic jam of boats going in?

I've done it both ways and prefer to be in the ocean if it's calm enough for the kids. Just too much craziness with all the boats inside.

If the ocean is calm its a good location, but that doesn't happen too often. Get there by 10am and you'll be fine, really not as bad as the old days, Sandy knocked alot out of the boat hobby

i agree Zach’s is not that bad the last few years. Most of the crazies race out right after the jets are done. Just hang out a little later and you will be fine.
Nassau cops, bay constable and coast guard are out in full force in Zach’s and the surrounding waters, make sure the captain is sober

This is a video from my boat a few years ago, turn the volume up and wait for it...
