Dolphin and whale watching

The best time to whale watch is September to November when whales migrate south.

Land-based viewing spots include:

  • Burrewarra Point Lookout (Guerilla Bay)
  • Broulee Island
  • Toragy Point (Moruya Heads)
  • Carters Beach Headland (Kianga)
  • Bar Rock Road Lookout (Narooma)

For those venturing offshore:

  • Humpback whales tend to swim close to shore near Montague Island on their migration south, and twenty or more whales can be seen daily
  • Killer whales and southern right whales, dolphins, flying fish, hammerhead sharks and manta rays are common sights
  • The marine park is also home to large Australian and New Zealand fur seal populations
  • Visit the Office of Environment and Heritage and Wild About Whales for more information about whales or visit for more tourist information including charter operators
