If you are in Merimbula, during whale watching season, you absolutely must do this. If there are whales out there they will find them. They know whales and while they say we were lucky that on our trip we had them around the boat for...More

We went on a whale watching tour, it was fantastic. I can genuinely say it was the highlight of our trip to Merimbula. The crew was knowledgeable and helpful and the whales beautiful and plentiful. I highly recommend you do this tour.

Warm welcome from the jetty staff. Fantastic and knowledgeable crew who knew the whales habits. Clean and tidy boat. A fantastic experience. And to crown it all free photos in case you where looking the wrong way when the whales breached.

hi We were down at Merimbula last week and booked a fishing charter. we had 7 adults at $90.00 each which came to $630.00. We expected to be on a deep sea fishing trip but when we arrived notice we were on a catamaran witch had about 25 people on it. the lady on the phone did not say it was a family fishing trip and we expected deep sea fishing. the photos you have up at that games places in Merimbula showed deep sea fishing charters holding big fish not small flat head and dodgy fishing rods, no offence but I have better fishing gear then that and we caught bigger fish off the beach then on the boat. We were really disappointed. The captain said he could only go out in about 30 meters of water if we went out any deeper all the lines would get tangled up as there were a lot of people on the boat. I believe you are being misleading.
