This was a really great experience. Make sure you take something really warm to wear, even in the middle of summer. It's very cold out on the water. Travel light too because bags and things get in the way and can easily get blown overboard....More

As Namibians traveling through our beautiful country, this is a HIGHLY recommended experience! We defiantly had the weather on our side, sunny and NO wind in Luderitz is unusual. Dolphins, penguins, seals, seabirds it was all we had wished for and more, your guide has...More
