“One of the highlights”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

This was truly a magical experience, and a highlight of Namibia which is high praise considering the amazing landscape in this country.

Jeannie is a fantastic tour guide who loves the area and is very much aware and respectful of the environment and having an appropriate relationship with the seals. The seals clearly love their interaction with Jeannie which has been built up through trust and time, and makes you feel very relaxed.

I will never forget paddling along with masses of seals around me wanting to play with us, splashing us when we didn't paddle, wanting to gnaw the paddle and have their tummy's rubbed with the paddle. We have kayaked with seals before, but never like this.

“Active fun time with lovely seals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2012

We truly enjoyed the kayaking with Jeanne. She is very kind and she made us feel relaxed. We had great fun visiting the seal colony and it was a wonderful experience having the seals come to the kayak and play with the paddle. What a great way of being out on the ocean and being close to the nature rather than sitting on a big boat with millions of people. It was a bit cold and windy on that day so we did not get a chance to see dolphins close by but we did see them jumping in the distance! While out on the ocean, Jeanne took some pics and video that she emailed to us for the memory. An unforgettable experience, highly recommended!

“Great Adventure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2012

We absolutely loved our kayak tour with Jeanne. You instantly like Jeanne, she puts on a great trip and you get really close to the beautiful seals. We also saw some dolphins jumping. Don't get on the big boat - go kayaking with Jeanne. It will be more memorable! Definitely 5 stars!

“Must Do”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2012

An exceptional way to experience the sheer beauty and nature Walvis Bay has to offer. Jeanne is incredibly knowledgeable and organised, making sure that each step of this journey will be remembered. The subsequent photo's and video's are a great keepsake.
