The splendid natural beauty of Southern Africa's West Coast is yours to discover during this half-day dolphin and seal cruise on the Walvis Bay Lagoon.

Depart the pier for the brief drive along the coastal road to Swakopmund, and on to the jetty. Upon arrival, you will embark your open ski boat for a 3 hour cruise in the Walvis Bay Lagoon. As a RAMSAR Natural Heritage Site and one of the most important wetlands along Southern Africa's west coast, the Walvis Bay Lagoon is renowned for its native bird species, and a vast array of intra-African and Palaearctic migrants. The water here is usually very calm, and abounds with bird and marine life.

Next, you will continue on to Pelican Point, where you may find a large seal colony, and schools of heavyside and bottlenose dolphins swimming alongside the boat. This area also abounds with pelicans and cormorants, as well as the white-chinned petrels, Wilson's storm petrels, cape gannets and black oystercatcher. Sparkling wine, fresh oysters, a selection of open sandwiches and soft drinks will be served during the cruise.

After returning to the jetty, you will disembark your boat and re-board your coach for the return drive to the pier.

Please note: Guests are encouraged to wear a windbreaker or warm jacket for this tour, which involves approximately 3 hours of boating on open water, in weather that can be windy and cold. There is a drastic change between high and low tide, which makes it difficult to embark and/or disembark the boat. This tour is not recommended for guests with limited mobility, or those who utilize a wheelchair. Operation of this tour is entirely dependent upon prevailing weather conditions.
