Why Travel with Narooma Charters ? We are the most experienced whale watching operation in the area. The most powerful engines to reach the whales quickly. Canopies for sun and rain protection. Toilets on board. Two 12.5 metre vessels, fully surveyed to carry passengers under a stringent 1c passenger ferry survey. Built specifically for charters out of Narooma.
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 we introduced Whale Watching Tours from the port of Narooma there has been a success rate of 98% 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. In the last 7 years we have had a succses rate of 100%.
Each pod of Whales on their southern migration stops in the area for up to four weeks and feeds on Krill or Jellyfish and when they have had their fill they frolic around the pristine waters of Montague Island.
A wide variety of Whales are seen on the Tours including Hump Backs, Southern Rights, Fin Whales, Bryde's Whales, Sei Whales, Blue Whales, Killer Whales and large pods of Dolphins are an added delight. Whales are often sighted only 5 minutes from port.
Not to be missed is the amazing Seal Colony at Montague Island which boasts up to 2000 Australian Fur Seals that swim right up to the boat. On the late afternoon tour it is possible to land on Montague Island with a National Parks and Wildlife Guide to see the incredible Penguin Parade.
