Merimbula Marina has been owned and operated by Simon and Jessica Millar since 2008.
Whale watching is our passion and in addition to Merimbula we also operate whale watching cruises from Darling Harbour, Sydney for 6 months of the year. We believe in responsible and respectful whale watching practices.
As a smaller company we have a strong focus upon customer service from the point of booking to the time we say goodbye after your cruise.
Simon worked for the business for five years before purchasing it in 2008. On most cruises he will be your skipper. Whale watching is his passion and he just loves being out on the ocean. Jessica and our two young sons are also whale and ocean enthusiasts. Call the office and they will assist you with your booking. They can also be regularly found up on the headland spotting whales for our whale watching cruises.
Our other Skipper Glenn grew up in Merimbula. As a local he knows all the best fishing spots and has been driving both whale watching and fishing boats for over 16 years.
Our whale watching crew are all whale and ocean lovers and will do all that they can to ensure your whale watching experience is a good one. We are committed to ensuring that our time spent with the whales does not negatively impact them and provides you with a positive and meaningful experience. Our skippers adhere to whale watching industry best practice guidelines and because we watch whales and dolphins year round we have gained a very good understanding of these animals.
We invite you to book a cruise with us and let us share our love of the ocean with you.
