Dolphin Cruise on the Walvis Bay Lagoon
Cruise aboard the 45' Royal Cape Catamaran ‘Silverwind', and enjoy an adventure packed tour to Pelican Point to explore the Walvis Bay area. From meeting with pelicans to feeding seals, and if luck permits, leaping dolphins and shy turtles…You are also treated to enjoy our Walvis Bay cultivated Oysters with sparkling wine and snacks, while spacious seating and trampolines provide you with comfort and time to relax.
The morning ‘Dolphin and Seal Cruises' are from 09:00 till 13:00. ‘Silverwind' and The Team depart from the Walvis Bay Yacht Club and continue on their route, into the beautiful Bay Area, which holds more beauty than the eye can see - A Shipwreck, Lighthouse, Oyster Platforms, different Bird species, Seals and more Marine Life.
In the Bay Area, the catamaran will move alongside the Oyster Platforms. Here your guide will share more information with you about the Walvis Bay cultivated Oysters. Included in the tour is the tasting of these delicacies.
‘Silverwind' proceeds to the ever-growing Pelican Point to have a closer look at the Lighthouse. The old supply railway spoors can still be seen from the years when the Lighthouse was still occupied by the Coast Guards. Pelican Point also has it's own little Jetty, but this facility is only used for our Corporate and Team Building Charters.
Moving around the Point, 3 different types of Dolphins may be encountered, namely: the Heavyside Dolphins - which are the most important, as they are endemic to the coast of Namibia, Dusky Dolphins and Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphins.
In Season, the larger mammals like the Southern Right Whale and the Humpback Whales may be spotted and with a bit of extra special luck, the mighty Killer Whales (Orcas). Rare sightings of the Sunfish and the Leatherback Turtles also keep you on the look out!
All this can be seen while comfortably relaxing in the Saloon, trampolines or on deck, whilst enjoying a glass of sparkling wine and snacks
