“A ABSOLUTE MUST DO!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2014

My wife and I were on a cruise ship from the Med to Cape Town, moored here for the day, took a fast boat tour around the bay, including Food and wine, beer , and fresh oysters, as many as can eat!
The Seals came on the boat, Really friendly great photo shoot, Pelicans flying just about head high , the skipper held a fish up and one flew gently to his hand and took the fish from his hand.
Best day out on whole cruise.

“An adequate day-trip, but not more”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

I stopped by Walvis Bay on a port call during a 2 week cruise from Cape Town back to Europe.

As I understand it, Walvis Bay is being promoted as a vacation destination. The scenery and tranquillity of the beach and waterfront are certainly worth seeing, but, unless you like lazing on a beach for days on end, I would suggest that a day's visit is enough to find sufficient to do here.

“So original”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2014

What a lovely little place. Walvis bay itself is a bit boring! but the waterfront is lovely. We spent the whole afternoon there, just enjoying summer and sunshine and the atmosphere. Tomorrow we will do the same thing again.
