Walvis Bay: Marine Big 5 Luxury Catamaran Tour

1. Walvis Bay: Marine Big 5 Luxury Catamaran Tour

Begin your dolphin and whale spotting expedition by checking in at Walvis Bay Waterfront at 8:30 am. Depart from the Jetty between 8:45 - 9 am. From there you’ll begin your search for Namibia’s marine Big 5. Sip a hot coffee or tea as you approach Pelican Point. Admire its landmark lighthouse and see the 60,000 cape fur seals who live there. If visiting in-season ( from July to November), you'll be able to spot large sea mammals including the Southern Right Whale and the Humpback Whale. If you’re lucky, you may be able to see a gray whale or a pygmy right whale. Observe different species of dolphins including bottlenose, Heaviside's, and dusky dolphins. Keep a lookout for mola molas and leatherback turtles. As you make your expedition, you’ll encounter a variety of seabirds including kelp gulls, Hartlaub’s gulls, and cape cormorant. On the return journey, cruise past ships and oilrigs docked in the bay. As you make your way back, enjoy fresh oysters, sparkling wine, savory snacks, and desserts alongside light drinks and water. You’ll return to the waterfront at 12:30 pm.

Loved this tour. Pelicans and seals jumped on the boat. We saw seals, dolphins and even a whale. Crew was friendly and shared a lot of information on the tour. The tour ended with a delicious meal and sparkling wine. Wonderful day out. On a cold day it can get a bit chilly so just take some warm clothes with.

It was really great, everything was fine except for the fog, later found out that they also offer an afternoon tour, which unfortunately wasn't available from getyourguide, so I recommend booking an afternoon tour, because then the fog is usually gone and the sun is shining .

Very well organized. German guide. We were lucky enough to see whales in April. But we didn't see any dolphins, turtles and molas. The seal colony was nice to watch. There were drinks and food on board

Great guide on our catamaran "Silverwind". He told so much, explained, informed .... even if we didn't see the Big Five of the sea, we learned a lot about animals, land and oyster farming.

Amazing experience and exceeding our expectations! Thank you!
