From meeting pelicans to viewing playful seals and, if luck permits, leaping dolphins and shy turtles - all this and more on our daily morning educational dolphin and seal cruises. We depart at 09h00 (check-in 08h30) every morning from our Jetty at the Walvis Bay Waterfront for a marine educational sightseeing tour in the bay area in search of the marine big 5: Whales, Dolphins, Mola, Leatherback turtle and seals. While serving hot coffee and tea, our initial route takes us past oyster farms to Pelican Point with its landmark lighthouse and 60,000 resident Cape Fur Seals. In season (July to November), larger mammals such as the Southern Right Whale and Humpback Whales are often spotted. Bottlenose, Heaviside and Dusky dolphins are regularly seen, as are Mola Molas and Leatherback Turtles. Our journey from Pelican Point takes us past some of the more interesting ships and oil rigs in the bay as we serve fresh oysters with sparkling wine, savoury snacks and desserts.

Cornelius was very knowledgeable and was our excellent guide during this 3 hour trip in walvis bay. We saw enough seals to last us a lifetime. The lunch with sparkling wine and perfect oysters made the day.

Mike Lloyd, our guide for the day, was a hoot! Very knowledgable, funny, adventuresome and just a lot of fun. Seals, surf, flamingos and lots of other birds, black-backed jackals, and breathtaking dunes that extended into the ocean. It was almost surreal. The red sands...More

Walvis Bay is just beautiful. The cruise was a bit kitschy with seals and white pelicans coming on board the catamaran. The food and drink was constant. The customer service was very good.

Pelicans and seals board the katamaran quite freely. The trip was peaceful and relaxing. And we had great weather. The explanations were good though sometimes the guide seemed a bit too familiar. The fresh oysters were good. The lunch could've been nicer had they just...More
