It’s Whale Watching Season

It’s Whale watching season from September to November. During this period, warm ocean currents assemble pods of moving Humpback Whales bringing them near the shore. Montague Island and Narooma, therefore, become among the best destinations globally to watch the migrating whales.

Humpback Whales differ from other whales because of their acrobatic nature. Often, the Humpback display different movements including the pectoral slaps, tail slaps and other interesting show of breeches. Besides enjoying the beautiful scenery courtesy of the Humpback Whales, you have a chance to see the mothers, as well as, the calves swimming side by side.

Whale Watching Special – $10 off per person rate for all whale watching, and also our Montague Island Tours.
