Frequently asked questions

Seal & Dolphin Tour

What time do we leave?


Check in: 08:30 am. Depart: 9:00 am

Different Departure times are available on request.




Where will we go?


The aim of each of our tours is to be able to show as much in and around the coast of Walvis Bay as possible.

After our 9am departure, we show you our beautiful Harbour and fishing industry before heading to historic Bird Island where we will keep an eye out for bottle nose dolphins. Leaving behind the coast, we cut across the middle of the bay to go to Pelican Point spotting birds and sealife along the way- everything from seals and dolphins to whales and turtles! From Pelican Point the boat will follow the inside of the bay up to Walvis Bay's Light House, the Wreck and the Oyster farms.

*Please note that this is our typical tour. The routes travelled may differ somewhat depending on the skipper, weather and sightings. We want you to see as much as possible and we’ll go out of our way to make it happen!




What will we eat?


We prefer small groups on our boats to ensure a richer experience. Our skipper will spoil you with complementary finger platters, soft drinks, Namibian beer, juice and water. Freshly served oysters accompanied by a great brut sparkling wine top off this delicious treat!




What will we see?


Due to Walvis Bay being in the Benguella which is one of the richest currents in marine life, you can expect some great sightings from our tours.

Sandwich Harbour

What time do we leave?


Check in: 08:30 am. Depart: 9:00 am

Different Departure times are available on request.




Where will we go?


A 50km scenic 4×4 drive takes you to one of the most photogenic places in Namibia, via the Kuiseb Delta. On windy days, the sand plays patterns on the dunes and during late afternoons the shadows change it to one of the seven natural wonders on earth. Sandwich Harbour is a natural bay that has awed and inspired many a visitor and traveller. To get there we will brave the dunes, dipping and cresting the sand waves, and creeping slowly down a slipface to hear the dune roar a greeting! Experience the crashing waves of the sea on one side, and the soaring heights of the sand dunes on the other. Should the tides be against us and the seas cut us off from the lagoon, we will climb the mighty dunes and take you to a viewtop instead.

The bay has a very interesting history which we won’t spoil by telling you now!




What will we eat?


We prefer small groups on our boats to ensure a richer experience. Enjoy some delicious platters, oysters, sparkling wine, soft drinks, Namibian beer, juice and real filter coffee on top of a dune overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. The secret is peace, tranquillity and timelessness




What will we see?


Look out for the black-backed jackal, fog-basking beetle, dancing spider, shovel-snouted lizard, springbok, brown hyaena and ostrich. We’ll show you the !Nara plant, endemic to Namibia and used by the bushmen as a source of protein. As the Walvis Bay Wetlands are also considered a bird paradise, you'll be spoilt for choice!





Topnaar People

What time do we leave?


Check in: 08:30 am. Depart: 9:00 am

Different Departure times are available on request.




What will we see and who are the Topnaar?


We will start the adventure by introducing you to our beautiful lagoon and salt pans filled with pink flamingos and many other birds, before starting this cultural educational trip through the dry Kuiseb Delta. Keep a look out for ostrich, springbuck and jackals while driving!

The Topnaar people are a clan of the Nama people in Namibia. Their settlements are all situated on the Kuiseb River, the largest one is Utuseb. They live among the seemingly barren dune landscape, and have carved out their living in this harsh environment. They live a life that relies on herding goats, but are also adapted to the dry coastal desert environment of the Namib. The relatively rich plant life of the Kuiseb River Valley provided them with additional sources of food, particularly the well-known, water retaining !Nara melon. Learn how they survive, prepare for the seasons and about their traditions.
