Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    The short point beach / lookout is a must at sunrise and sunset. Really nice seats and lookout in the reserve to watch the surf. The short walk to the look out at sunrise is worth the early wake up great for dogs and family’s.

    nice soft sand with 4km worth of beach to enjoy. great for boogie boarding if you like that sort of thing and depending on the day they have great markets. I walked from Merimbula to Pambula and I would say doing that walk is much better than the board walk (bring food otherwise you will regret it aha)

    Scenic, safe beach for toddlers, great for kayaker & a favorite with surfers (they launch at the head to cross the channel to reach the waves). Has a popular kiosk with room to sit alongside & view the ocean.

    A quick meal to finish our time in Merimbula
    We chose the Chinese option
    Our meals were nice
    My chow mein was mostly deep fried noodles but the chicken and veg were nice
    Typical club style food
    Nothing to rave about

    We had a really nice time paddling on the lake on a still morning. The staff were friendly and helpful. We followed up with coffees and a snack. Strongly recommended! YMMV

    Knowledgeable, passionate staff, saw whales but no dolphins which was surprising as the first time I went with this business there were a lot! Lots of whales however, mum's and calves ❤️

    Awesome rental shop in town right by the water! Great selection of gear to hire, e-bikes, SUPs, surfboards, fishing and camping gear.

    Friendly staff that goes above and beyond, I had a great time cruising down the lake on a SUP with my puppy! The retail shop next door had dog jackets for my XS dachshund!

    A must visit for all your adventures in merimbula!

    The skipper Simon was so patient and we ended up having a fantastic cruise. A mother and calf put on a show for us. The boat was comfortable and handled the conditions beautifully. I highly recommend whale watching in Merimbula

    Booked a 3 hour private charter for our family group including 5 young children.

    Everyone had a blast. We were lucky enough to have perfect weather and lots of fish - mostly flathead.

    Scott was super helpful given most of us had no clue about fishing and gave us all the assistance we needed!

    A really wonderful morning out on the water.

    Faster newer boat than the competition. Half a dozen fish in the bucket before the other mob even pulled up for the first time makes for longer time the lines in the water between this and every spot. The guys running it were professional courteous knowledgeable who removed all catches and distributed gutted and cleaned at the end of trip. Would definitely choose again. Bucket loads of fish and fun had by all.

    What an experience Reel Affair was! Captain Phil was more than happy to accomodate me and my small family (8 years and 16 months).
    Both Phil and Ryan had outstanding service and we couldn’t have been happier with their hospitality. I highly recommend this charter for any families who wish to get a line in the reef! Seeing the Whales, seals and Rays was also a nice little extra highlight to our adventure!

    The Park Run is held every Saturday starting at the Eastern side of the bridge across the lake. There is a big car park nearby if you drive there. It’s a very picturesque route across the bridge and the length of the boardwalk and back. The fastest runners will take about 17 minutes and the slowest about 42.

    Fantastic charter we bagged out on flat head by 11 o’clock , rather than waste our time on the reef as it hasn’t been much good lately we targeted flat head , skipper was a great fella happy to lend advice , was good to see kids aloud on the boat they had a ball and the skipper was very patient and happy to help them , he even filleted and skinned our catch , we all went home with a big bag of fillets each , overall a great charter will be back again

    We were keen to try SUP and after checking the forecasts Steve urged us to delay a day - we're so glad we did. We had beautiful weather and crystal clear water with heaps of stingrays, fish and starfish. Steve was great - clear and supportive and the right guidance to make sure we enjoyed ourselves and stayed safe. He knows his waterways really well and from our experience I'd say he is really good at adapting to the skill and confidence level of his clients (we are not young and super fit ;) It was a really positive experience and we are keen to do it again. Thanks so much Steve and good luck with the puppy!
