The perfect location for whale watching

Whales come heart-stoppingly close to Narooma, brought in on warm, krill-rich currents as the continental shelf dips closer to shore than anywhere else along the east coast of Australia. Narooma has a sighting success rate of 98% during peak season from September to November (they’re also seen heading north in June/July) and pods of up to ten aren’t uncommon around Montague Island.

Humpbacks, Southern Right whales, Fin whales, Brydes whales, Sei whales, Blue whales and Orcas have all been seen in recent years and they will often come right up to the boats to check out the humans.

You can often see them from the shore and the local school children will spend their recess whale-watching from the playground.
