A mile out...probably a different story.
skimmer does do a lot of work so i usually wait till high tide to get better water. i once got the water from about a 2-3 mile out and that was super clear. i dont think ive ever seen my tank that clear before
i just did a water change but if the rain stops and i see the sun come out ill probably change it again
