    What to Expect
    The day starts with check-in - 8h30 at our Walvis Bay Waterfront Offices - to start the Marine Dolphin Cruise at 9h00.

    You'll receive a boarding pass and all boats depart from the Waterfront Jetty (in front of our office).

    The Marine Dolphin Cruise proceeds through the Lagoon area, oyster farms all the way to Pelican Point. Here you will be welcomed by the impressive 70 000 plus Cape Fur Seal Colony and the landmark Pelican Point Lighthouse.

    Throughout our informative guides will entertain you in English, Afrikaans, Dutch and German. Common sightings include Bottlenose and Heavyside Dolphins, Cape Fur Seals, Flamingos, Pelicans, Mola Molas, penguins and Humpback & Southern Right Whales (August-November). 

    The return cruise to the Waterfront will include a light lunch, fresh Walvis Bay oysters, sparkling wine, beverages and bottled water.

    After disembarking from The Marine Dolphin Cruise guests usually have about 20 mins break before the 4×4 depart – once again from the Offices.

    The journey to Sandwich Harbour starts with a stop at the Walvis Bay Lagoon to view the flamingos and then proceeds to the Kuiseb River Delta through the Walvis Bay Saltpans. The Sandwich Harbour Lagoon, and it's rich wetlands, is a Ramsar site (one of five in Namibia) and we always try to reach it via the beach. This is however dependant on tides and the swell and if this isn't possible we will get a look out spot for a elevated view of the Sandwich Harbour Lagoon.  

    There are various stops and ample opportunity for some breathtaking photos. One of the stops also includes some light snacks, homemade bakes, beverages and sparkling wine.  Some common sightings include animals that are desert adapted like the black-backed jackal, fog-basking beetle, dancing spider (‘white lady of the Namib’), golden mole, Springbok, Oryx, ostrich, brown hyena and gecko. The Lagoon and Saltpans are home to large variety of waders. 

    This is a full day excursion and our vehicles usually only return after 17h30 allowing the for the full utilisation of the golden sunset.

    An experience of a life time! Patrick Jackson, our guide is amazing with young children and special needs teenagers too. Full of interesting info and knows his surroundings like the back of his hand. Definitely a must when visiting Swakopmund.
