Spend a half day on this scenic catamaran sightseeing cruise from Walvis Bay, where spotting seals, pelicans, dolphins and other marine life is practically guaranteed. Float alongside friendly dolphins on this epic day cruise and check out Cape fur seals that congregate along the shores of Walvis Bay. Get an up close look at local oyster beds where these gems of the sea are cultivated and harvested. Between July and August, the peak of whale season, travelers may even catch a glimpse of these giants of the sea. Tuck into a light snack as you cruise along the bay, and sample some of the famous oysters farmed right in the waters of Walvis.

Returns to original departure point
Your sightseeing day cruise begins in the harbour of Walvis Bay. You’ll hop aboard a stylish catamaran and settle into the cozy deck for a truly memorable afternoon. Enjoy the old-school saloon and take in the views as you venture out to sea. 

During the sightseeing cruise, you’ll gain unlimited access to some of Walvis Bay’s most prized treasures. Get up close to the submerged platforms and beds filled with these famous oysters. Then listen to an onboard expert explain how thousands of oysters are cultivated here each year.

Set sail to Pelican Point, a quiet peninsula where you can catch these colorful winged birds flying overhead. Take in the impressive view, complete with scenic lighthouse and ocean landscapes. Cape fur seals may even be gathered on sandy shores. Next, head to Bird Island, an artificial inlet that’s home to numerous colonies of seabirds. 

While at sea, scope the waters for three different species of dolphins: the Atlantic bottlenose, dusky, and the heaviside. With a little luck, these friendly mammals with find their way to your catamaran and join in the fun for at least part of your excursion. During whale season (July-August), Southern right whales, orcas or humpbacks may also be in the bay. Hard to spot sunfish and leatherback turtles are a few of the other marine life worth looking out for while adrift.

After working up an appetite, sip sparkling wine alongside everything from Walvis Bay oysters — farmed in the waters around you — to tasty snacks, canapés and cocktail cakes. Wash them all down with a water, beer, juice or a coffee or tea. 

Then, sit back and enjoy the view as your day cruise comes to a close and you head back to port to leave your catamaran.

It was in fact a very pleasant Cruise at Walvis Bay. Everything is very well organised: We had this trip in a very nice Catamaran, the excursion team, starting from the Office desk to the seals feeder and the Tour guide was very friendly and well prepared and the light buffet served at the boat was delicious. I do recommend this trip. It is a Must! But be aware of the weather: it is always windy and frozen there. So, you better take your warmest jacket with you!
