WELCOME

WELCOME

NAROOMA IS THE  GATEWAY TO MONTAGUE ISLAND AND THE BATEMANS MARINE PARK.   WE ARE THE OCEAN ADVENTURE SPECIALISTS! WE LOVE WHAT WE DO AND WE LOVE WHERE WE LIVE!

Since 1999 we have been sharing the joys of this paradise with other fisherfolk, scuba divers, snorkelers and lovers of our marine life!

Montague Island is a wonderful place to visit. It has won countless awards and been featured on numerous travel shows as one of those ‘must-dos’. It is the only manned island light station on the NSW coast and one of only a few light stations open to the public. The view from the top is wonderful. It is also home to thousands of seals, little penguins and other birds.

It is a favourite dive destination because of the thrill of diving with the playful fur seals,  the huge variety and quantity of tropical and temperate fish, the amazing natural formations around Montague island, the incredible variety of marine life. Not far away is  the 120-year-old wreck of the SS Lady Darling.

Montague Island is just 9kms from Narooma  and the continental shelf is just a further 10kms. This relatively shallow channel of water creates one of the best fishing regions in eastern Australia with great reef fishing all year. Snapper, morwong, leatherjacket, wrasse, longfin perch and flathead abound on the reefs. Over the warmer months we often target kingfish, as the local variety is not only a great fighting fish but also excellent eating. If you want some game fishing fun- come with us out to the shelf for some marlin, yellowfin, bonito and albacore. Fishing out of Narooma has got even better since trawling has been banned with the formation of the Batemans Marine Park on the south coast of NSW.

Whale watching usually takes priority here  between September and November. Where else on the coast can you see whales and visit a fur seal colony all in a 2 ½ hour trip! It is quite common to see 5 or more pods of whales. The migrating whales, mostly humpbacks,  stay between the shore and the continental shelf- meaning that their numbers are more concentrated off Narooma than where the continental shelf is much further from land.

A cruise around the island and a visit to the seal colonies is a must while in Narooma. We include lots of interesting tales and spotting of other wildlife.

Our eco adventure involves a tour on Montague Island with a National Parks guide, a visit to the fur seals with an optional swim/snorkel and a cruise that includes whale watching in spring.

Or, if some of your group want to fish and others not, our mixed adventure  combines a cruise, a swim or a snorkel with the seals or in a sheltered cove and  some reef fishing.
