Our 3:30 boat trip to Montague island on 15th September was one of the best experiences
I have ever had . The whales were spell binding , the seals enchanting and the penguins mesmerizing. Montague Island is a very very beautiful place. It was an unforgettable day with wonderful commentary from the captain and a fabulous guide on Montague. These guys love their work and it shows. This trip is worth every penny- GO!

We had a wonderful trip with Narooma Charters on 25/9/12 - although there was no whale watching trip scheduled when we rang, they took our number, and rang back within half an hour to say that they had received other calls, so would go out. The weather was a bit bouncy, but despite the swell they found a few whales for us - a pair breached together, and then swam around and under the boat. It was a wonderful experience, added to by the informative commentary from the skipper. On the way back via Montague Island we saw plenty of seals as well. We would definitely recommend Narooma Charters for anyone wanting to get out whale watching from Narooma.

Narooma Charters is a friendly, well run boat that cruises out of Narooma to Montague Island and surrounds. From late August thru early November it cruises out to see the Humpback whales that come up from the south at various times. It also sweeps slowly round Montague to visit the seal colonies living and breeding on the rocks. The tour guide/Captain, Norm has been running these tours for eleven years and the tour is accompanied by a well informed commentary over the speakers. Norm is a very down-to-earth-Aussie, with the accompanying broad Aussie accent, upward intonation and rather obvious wit, and a very good humour prevails throughout the trip. Today, Sept 21, in a calm sea on a sunny day, two humpback whales came to visit the boat. Norm switched off the motor and for over half an hour the young whales circled the boat, rolling onto their backs, coming straight up out of the water in front of us, rolling and spouting with a playful inquisitiveness. I reached out to touch one but it was a foot out of reach. Some of their smells were foul .. the experience was unique and unforgettable. That's the third time with Narooma Charters and todays experience was the best yet! Thank you Norm!
