Their is no doubt that those living or visiting the Far South Coast know it is oozing with natural beauty. The pristine water ways, spectacular beaches and ancient forests make this area a playground for lovers of the outdoors. However, there is a true gem that lies within plain sight. Merimbula Wharf stands proudly overlooking a world class surf break, beautiful lake entrance and the blue expanse of the Pacific Ocean.
Earlier this week I was hit with a dose of nostalgia whilst taking groups of people snorkelling at the iconic Merimbula Wharf. I was reminded of the days when I would cling to Dads back as he would point out Blue Grouper, schooling mullet, squid, stingrays and many more of the interesting marine locals. When thinking back Merimbula Wharf is where I really become comfortable in the ocean and where my fascination for the marine environment began.
Thankfully the Wharf and surrounding area remains abundant with marine life. Whether it be Nudibranchs, massive rays, Bango Sharks, Bream, Blackfish, Urchins, Kelp there is a lot to see. With the right conditions the water is very inviting even for the most hesitant first time snorkellers. It is my pleasure to be able to show people this amazing underwater paradise. I'm looking forward to using one of the best NE'ly lee's on the coast to show off our amazing backyard. #ACWA #snorkelling #Merimbula
