    From meeting with 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 between 08h45 and 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 as we approach 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, while other whale species, such as the Gray whale and the Pygmy Right whale have made appearances. Bottlenose, Heaviside and Dusky dolphins are regularly seen, as are Mola Molas and Leatherback Turtles.

    Accompanying our three catamarans throughout are a variety of seabirds, such as the Kelp Gull, Hartlaub’s Gull, Pelicans and Cape Cormorant.

    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 together with light drinks, cooldrinks and water. We return to the Waterfront at around 12h30.

    Not a great fan of boat trips, but I have to say this was superb. Well organised and the crew were so knowledgeable. Blankets, coffee, sherry, beer and a great buffet of Oysters and seafood! Seals and Pelican came on board which was special. We didn't see Dolphins but saw a

    It’s quite an expensive boat ride to go out for a few hours to try to catch sight of some dolphins and seals. It was also quite boring overall - we saw pelicans and a seal in person only because the company brings fish to feed them so they come onto the boat. We also saw a few

    Absolutely incredible day. We set sail with an extra passenger (Stripes the seal) and acquired a few pelican guests as we journeyed out from the bay. Our guide Andreas was very funny and has such an obvious passion for animals he was brilliant. We learned so much about the local

    Very well organised, warm blankets are provided but take jackets and a windproof as it can get cold. Our guide was really knowledgeable and ensured everyone was included. The pelicans were amazing and the whole cruise was very relaxing. We had a 4yr old with us who also
