Spirit Quest Travel is spending time with the locals at Montague Island, Narooma.

Get up close and personal with Australian fur seals in Narooma

You can’t say you hate Monday’s when they are spent like this.

Over the Australia Day long weekend, we spent our day down under with the Australian Fur Seals and Grey Nurse Sharks at Montague Island.

Montague Island is a short boat trip (approximately 25 mins) from the picturesque township of Narooma on the Eurobodalla South Coast of NSW. The indigenous name for the region is ‘clear blue water’, and when you are here, you’ll understand why.

Get in touch with Norm and the crew from Narooma Charters to book in your diving experience. The team are super helpful and know the area inside out. You can expect to pay $110 for a double boat dive but check out their website for an updated pricing schedule.

It is a phenomenal experience playing with these beautiful creatures underwater, and diving with them certainly gives you a new appreciation of the animals.  However, don’t be alarmed when they first charge at you baring their teeth as if you remain still and calm; they will turn away with no harm and will continue to engage with you.

Not keen on diving? Not to worry as the team also offers snorkelling, island tours and fishing trips providing multiple opportunities to get up close and personal with the seals, penguins and marine life. If you visit from September to November join their whale watching tours to see these gentle giants like you’ve never seen them before.
