Just imagine yourself snorkelling in Montague Island’s crystal-clear shallow bay, marvelling at the cheeky playful Seals!
What a way to get away from the norm of everyday life or the hustle and bustle of work.
Whilst looking at different activities available from Narooma bay Australia we couldn’t help but notice that one of the most sought after is snorkelling with seals off of the Montague Islands coast. The bay offers some breath-taking natural beauty and wildlife as well as the chance to actually swim with seals!
What’s more is that the coastline off Bermagui is absolutely stunning, even more amazing is that the locals see the opportunity to show off Montague Island as an honour. Montague Island is situated in the Batemans Marine Park, in the shadow of Gulaga Mountain, and is a nature lover’s paradise.
Thousands of seabirds nest there each year, including an Australian and a New Zealand Fur Seal colony, Little Penguin colonies, Grey Nurse Shark breeding grounds, and an Australian and a New Zealand Fur Seal colony. It is rich in history and has a special cultural significance for the local Aboriginal people. The waters between Bermagui and Montague are teeming with wildlife, including dolphins and seals all year and whales from May to November.
