Explore Atlantic waters by kayak in search of the beautiful ocean mammals that thrive close to Namibia’s Midwest coast.
Paddle in the country’s deepest harbour, surrounded by seals and dolphins, observing up close these wonderfully playful creatures in their natural habitat.
On this fantastic adventure, you’ll also head inland to explore the coastal dunes for some bird spotting and dune boarding!
Walvis Bay is home to Namibia’s largest, deepest harbour and is the country’s biggest import/export region. The waters around the Bay are abundant with small fish and plankton making it a perfect feeding ground for whales, seals and dolphins. The land surrounding the coastline is made up of dunes and arid desert. With a population of 63,000, Walvis Bay is Namibia's third biggest city with its own airport.
Meet your guides for a full safety brief before driving out to Pelican Point peninsula to start your kayak adventure. At certain times of the year, you can easily spot migrating whales feeding on the mass of plankton in the surrounding ocean waters. Benguela dolphins are also native to this area and often play and perform around passing kayaks. You’ll then head to a seal island where you will witness hundreds of seals chilling out on the shoreline. These friendly creatures regularly swim up-close to kayaks to say hello, giving you some amazing photo opportunities. Once the kayak trip is over it’s onto dry land for a spot of lunch. You will then head into the surrounding dunes for a fun-filled off-road experience, with the option of dune boarding! In the arid lands around Walvis Bay, you can also expect to see Ostriches and Greater Flamingos!
