unique location offers dozens of dive locations and the advantage of dives in
almost any weather conditions. Montague Island is recognised as on of the top

very agile, very playful Fur seals. Or maybe witness one of nature's brilliant
Humpback whales or the spectacle of a pod of dolphins or Orcas.

Manta Rays, Seals, Turtles, Seals, Tropicals, Seals, Coral Gardens, Seals, Swim
Throughs, Seals, Bubble Cave, Seals, Pinnacles, Oh and Seals. Surprised ! So are the many divers who
are now discovering the charms of Montague
Island
on the South Coast of NSW. Because of its position it can offer
different dives at different times of the year. For example during the cooler
months you can experience the sheer exhilaration
of playing with up to 2000 very friendly, very agile, very playful Fur seals.

Or maybe witness one of nature's brilliant Humpback
whales or the spectacle of a pod of dolphins.
A few months later warm
currents up to 25 degrees bring a mass of tropical
fish and pelagics
as well as the nutrients that feed the coral, nudibranchs, giant tube worms and
gorgonea fans
. It also brings with it creatures not normally seen this far
South, creatures like the Grey Nurse
sharks
that take up residence in Febuary, or the occasional turtle , manta or sunfish as well as
the usual hordes of kingfish, trevally
and hosts of other reef species . We also have 400 to 500 seals staying for the
summer months.



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 furry funsters.  Its 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 or snorkels in their
mouths.



The colony consists of up to 2000
seals
during the cooler months (June to mid Dec). Most of these are either
rogue or non competitive seals rejected from the Southern colonies. Most are
male.
