Tour Montague Island, an unspoilt haven.
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. Just 9km east of Narooma, the 200 acre island is protected is also home to thousands of seals, little penguins and other birds.
It is a favorite scuba dive and snorkel 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 including diving with the Grey Nurse Shark in season. 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.
Go diving, whale watching, fishing & more
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.
