About Laramon Tours
Laramon Tours came under new ownership in December 2019, and since then significant changes have been made. We offer a variety of cruises that explore the harbour area, oyster farm, and Pelican Point where thousands of Cape Fur Seals can be viewed. Cheeky pelicans and inquisitive seals are bound to climb aboard the boats and provide unforgettable entertainment. Other marine life that can be seen include a variety of sea birds, dolphins, sea turtles, Mola Mola, penguins, and whales. Our most popular 3 hour Classic Marine Cruise is a must for anyone wanting a guided experience in the Bay. Tight on time? Watch the sun kiss the horizon on our 2 hour Sunset Cruise, or perhaps join our Harbour Cruise which offers a flexible departure time. All tours are weather permitting. In addition to our aforementioned cruises, we pride ourselves in being the trendsetters of 'Special Event' cruises - these include live music events, themed events, and more. We promise you an unforgettable experience!

Overview
Sandwich Harbour is a place where you have to go or regret it for the rest of your life.
Sandwich is only accessible with a good 4 wheel drive vehicle and a fully qualified driver who has lots of experience of the dunes.
The Sandwich Harbour tour starts in Walvis Bay with a visit to the flamingos in the lagoon and a stop on the dunes at the Salt Works, to see where the salt comes from that melts the snow in Europe!
From there we drive through the Kuiseb Delta where the sight of a Springbok or two is not uncommon and over the salt plains to the Namib Naukluft Park border. Once inside, we drive on the beach to Sandwich Harbour.

At Sandwich Harbour lagoon we stop so our clients can take a stroll alongside the lagoon for photos of the birds and beautiful nature scenes.

On our way back we visit a viewpoint on the dunes to look down on the lagoon, from where we drive for approx. 6km through the dunes back to the border.

We did the catamaran tour. It was excellent. Friendly knowledgeable crew of 3 who went out of their way to make trip memorable. From ‘friendly’ seals and kelp gulls to heaps of seals on split to the excitement of a playful group of dolphins in the water..... all just wonderful!!! We were collected and returned to Swakopmund. Highly recommended!

I was initially a bit hesitant about this activity, but it was simply superb. The crew was excellent and we a great couple of hours out at sea including the onboard inspection by a few fur seals. The guide was extremely knowledgeable as well as fun and the oysters were amazing. Highly recommended!!

We did the Catamaran cruise from Walvis Bay and it was fantastic. The tour guide/captain of the Catamaran was incredibly knowledgeable. We saw dolphins, seals, pelicans, a whale, and we had an amazing close encounter experience with the seals and pelicans. The oysters and champagne where a delicious inclusion. Highly recommended when visiting Swakopmund or Walvis Bay!
