Fun tour guide Jens had an abundance of energy and enthusiasm which got the trip off to the right start! Very knowledgable about the area, history and wildlife and a keen passion for conservation. After the 4x4 drive all the way to Pelican Point (45-60 mins) we kitted up and jumped into the water (not as cold as thought would... More

The drive to Pelican Point was an experience in itself - in an old jeep on the sandy banks, where jackals roam and of course lots of Cape seals hang out. Kayaking near the seal colony was absolutely amazing. The animals are very curious and you get a good view of what life on the beach is like for them.... More

We had a wonderful time kayaking with the seals. There are lots of them and they are very curious and interact with you in the water. It is a half day tour, in the morning, and after the tour we had a hot coffee and delicious sandwich in the bay. Highly recommended!

What a fun, active and informative to spend a free morning - getting up close and personal with the marine Walvis Bay has to offer!

This is one of the best experiences with mammals of the sea. Our group was about 7 people. The seals come to you, swim along and play around you. It such a good experience. If you want to see seals but not have the encounter with them, you can also go on a boat. But instead of 50cm in front... More

We got a really bad weather in the day of the tour but when we arrived at the Pelican Point and saw thousands of seals, it was perfect! Very cool kayaking among them and there were lots of babies! Seals are very playful and curious. Take your Go pro and a floating stick with you and have fun! On the... More

We were picked up from the cruise ship terminal and taken to Pelican Point to kayak. Very safe kayaks and we were well organised. Waterproof trousers, jacket and shoes provided. And life jackets. We had over an hour in the kayaks and watched the seals in the water playing and on the beach. Truly amazing and wonderful experience. After the... More

An amazing morning. We had checked some of the clips on YouTube beforehand but they cannot adequately convey the experience of kayaking amongst hundreds of seals. Hard to keep some of the inquisitive ones out of the kayak! There were only four of us in the group on this particular day so we had lots of useful information from our... More

Naude is such a awesome guy, he explains everything in details, tell us what to expect, what to do and was so reassuring. The supplied all the gear that is required. The drive to the point... More

Amazing morning activity, so worthwhile. Cost is $650N each and it's so worth it. That price is if you can get to the port yourself, $800 if you need to be collected. After a long wait for the owner to arrive and all participants to arrive be we set off at 8:15am. Driving for 45 mins around the peninsula our... More
