Merimbula Marina is a small family owned business. Our passion is whale watching and for 8 months of the year this is what we do. May to August during the Norther Migration of the wonderful humpback whales we operate cruises out of Darling Harbour Sydney. And then for the Southern Migration from September to December we run daily cruises from Merimbula on the NSW South Coast. The Southern Migration from Merimbula is our favourite time of the year as so many whales pass close to the shore and the whale watching is sensational!Outside of the whale season we operate Scenic Dolphin Cruises December to August. These cruises are a wonderful way to see the spectacular Sapphire Coast from the water and regularly sight a variety of marine life.We also operate fishing charters year round from Merimbula. We have daily 5hr Reef Fishing Charters, 3hr Family Fishing during school holidays and during the Game Fishing Season we operate 8hr Game Fishing Charters. Private Charters can also be organised by contacting our office.

What a great two hours we had today. Quick stop at the chemist for sea sickness pills before coffee and then boarding our boat. Of course you have to expect a swell when you get out to the ocean. We were hoping to see dolphins and we saw so many. Just fantastic. Loved our day. Thanks.

Today we were lucky enough to enjoy the 2 hour Coastal BBQ tour with Simon . Today we were lucky enough to see a seal, 7 Dolphins who swam with our boat for ages. Also we saw 3 large Stingrays, Pelicans, Black Swans and an Eagle and numerous birds. Our BBQ lunch was also enjoyed. The staff including little James... More

We booked the 2 hr BBQ cruise and were very happy with everything. Great staff, lovely lunch, calm seas, lots of dolphins, a seal, some penguins, an eagle and beautiful scenery. Thank you for a great cruise and money well spent. Will have to come back to visit the whales

The old Merimbula magic comes back as soon as I get here... Just LOVE this place. The wharf is an awesome spot - quintessential Merimbula. Smell the sea, listen to the gulls, drink fine coffee, what's not to like!?

Great insight into the coastal strip. This small speedboat is great value over a 2 hour trip. We got to see a large pod of black dolphins with calves close up alongside the boat. We had 8 on board which made it very comfortable for all to spread around. Bring your camera and take some sea sick tablets if you... More

We did the afternoon two hour cruise on the smaller speedboat and it was fantastic. Covered a big area and the driver was really good giving a great commentary all the way and pointing out some good local sites to visits. We've been to Merimbula a few times and he suggested a few places worth going to which we had... More

We boarded the Catamaran (presume that is what it is) twice. Once with sea sickness secondly drugged up. It was a magnificent experience for my son James to catch 4 Flatheads and to learn how to fish properly. He is certainly inspired for more. thanks again Merimbula Marina.

We had two experiences with Merimbula Marina. First was the BBQ cruise which was really relaxed and interesting. We learnt about the coastal area, ate a yummy lunch and saw HEAPS of dolphins. A couple of days later we went on the ocean adventure tour and it was also really fantastic. In a smaller, faster boat, we got to see... More

2 hour cruise. A great experience from start to finish, friendly and happy service, lovely barbecue on board, amazing views. And topped off by a pod of dolphins that stayed with the boat for half an hour. Thoroughly recommended.

Two hours of fun on the cruise with lunch provided. We enjoyed every minute of it. The owners kindly accepted our request to provide BBQ fish instead of sausages. The boat was comfortable and the sailing was smooth. Will recommend for holiday fun with the family.
