Scuba Diving

Located just five miles off the coast from Narooma, Montague Island is one of diving’s most diverse and best kept secrets. The island’s unique location offers dozens of dive locations. The favourite for new and regular divers is Montague’s famous Australian Fur Seal Colony. Every diver who experiences the joy of swimming with these cute, playful, wide-eyed creatures emerges with a feeling of amazement at the friendliness of these fun seeking seals. It’s an easy dive with most of the seals sunbaking on the surface within 20 metres of the anchored boat. Yet when a diver enters the water they just can’t help themselves and come charging over to show off their agility to the strange clumsy creatures with bottles on their backs!

Whale Watching

1994 saw the first dedicated whale watching tours start from Narooma. After seeing large pods of migrating whales during September through to November, Narooma Charters decided to run specialised whale watching tours. Whale watching has proved to be so popular it is now one of the most popular times of year. Pods of up to 10 whales are not uncommon and often swim to the boat where they seem curious about the people watching them. Since whale watching tours began from the port of Narooma there has been a success rate of 98 per cent with many people who have been all over the world specifically to see whales, commenting that Narooma has turned on the best whale watching they have ever seen.

Snorkelling

Snorkelling with the seals at Montague Island. Experience the joy of swimming with these cute creatures with a feeling of amazement at the friendliness of these furry fun-seeking seals. It’s an easy swim with most of the seals sunbaking on the surface within 20 metres of the anchored boat. The colony consists of up to 1,600 seals during the cooler months (June to mid December). During the summer months there is 500 to 800 seals at Montague Island most of these are either rogue or non competitive seals rejected from the Southern colonies. All are male and this is a non-breeding colony, hence the island has no shark problem because sharks tend to only feed on small pups that haven’t yet learnt to swim properly.
