    Just check what you allowed to collect before you go. You may not remove any sps. Also a good idea to know what you want and can keep in your tank before you collect, you don't want to end up putting non compatible things in your tank.

    I think all hard coral collection is prohibbited. Bluff is a good long hour from hibberdene, so plan such that you hit these spots on the low tide. Take frag plugs and superglue gel for those zoas.
