Full description

The Pelican Point kayaking tour starts every morning with a scenic drive by 4x4 vehicle along the Walvis Bay Lagoon and the salt mines to Pelican Point. Stop along the way to take pictures of countless flamingos, pelicans, large flocks of cormorants, and a great variety of other birds and wildlife. After about an hour, reach Pelican Point and hop in your kayak.

Pelican Point is home to up to 50,000 Cape fur seals year-round. They are very friendly and playful and not scared of the kayaks. The seals are inquisitive and often come within touching distance of the kayaks. You'll stay on the protected side of the peninsula and spend around 2 hours on the ocean, depending on general weather conditions. Your guide will use a waterproof camera to capture some photos.

After kayaking, recharge at breakfast with some fresh rolls and coffee and tea before heading back to Walvis Bay.

We were in South Africa with the AIDAMira for 14 days and booked this really great trip in advance. Although we walked about 15 to 20 minutes to the meeting point, we could have been picked up directly from the ship. The organization was really great! We went to the seal seals with jeaps and kayaks. The ride was super nice. Once there, we received a briefing. And then it began. The two of us (a group of 5 kayaks) drove between the seals. Indescribable and touching. Then the catamarans came and it got a bit crowded. A picnic was then prepared on the beach. Sandwiches, cookies, coffee, tea. On the beach we were allowed to see coyotes up close. The guides have guided the baby seals, which had got lost, back towards the water. We were all just waiting and amazed. Definitely book in a small group through GYG, it's worth it!
