About Merimbula Marina
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 August 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 Discovery Cruises December to May. 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 over the summer from Merimbula. We have 4hr Reef Fishing Charters, and during the Game Fishing Season we operate 8hr Game Fishing Charters. Private Charters can also be organised by contacting our office.

What an amazing morning going whale watching! Didn't have to go too far before we seemed to be surrounded by whales. Can't recommend this company highly enough. They are so enthusiastic about what they do and so knowledgeable. Very reasonably priced and to get the

Cannot give today’s whale watching tour any higher praise. It was amazing witnessing feeding of 100 large humpbacks off the coast at Merimbula. The staff are fabulous and their resident red kelpie barks enthusiastically when he sights a whale. Poor dog exhausted himself today!

Thanks so much for taking the time to post your review! We really appreciate your feedback and are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your time with us. The Dolphins are always amazing - unfortunately we do not always see them but thankfully we did on your cruise! We love the region in which we live and really enjoy sharing this with our guests. We will look forward to seeing you during the whale watching season. The best time for viewing whales from Merimbula is mid August to the end of November. In addition to the humpback whales passing at this time we usually see large pods of common dolphins and can also sight other species of whales and dolphins. Thanks for coming out with us and we look forward to seeing you again in the future.
