It was one of the best organised trips I have done worldwide & completed exceeded my expectations. Their are so many seals in the colony that you can actually kayak amongst them as they play and frolic around you. It was amazing to see their behaviour so close especially the young pups and how they porpoise alongside the kayaks. Such inquisitive creatures and guaranteed to make you laugh. The guides were very knowledgeable and made the whole experience one to treasure. I would definitely go out again with these guys when I return to Walvis Bay.

A super day kayaking!

We had a great day with everything you could wish for! Totally exceeded my expectations, so many playful seals you could interact with. We had an absolutely perfect guide named Schalk, he was really experienced and gave a great briefing before the tour so you were completely comfortable doing the kayaking. And his knowledge of the area and the nature was so abundant, so the experience was much more than just seeing seals, but also learning about different birds as flamingo, pelicans, cormorants, penguins, persian terns, egrets etc.
Schalk was really knowledgable, friendly and caring.
I have tried kayaking with seals in New Zealand but this is something different! I think it is one of the greatest wildlife interactions I hav had in my life!

I can really recommend booking with Pelican Point Kayakking, and try to get Schalk as your guide, it just made our experience way more cool! You wont regret it!

Amazing tour, it’ll remain one of the best memories of our trip. The seals are playful, curious jumping all around you. The trip is a bit long but definitely worth it. If you’re lucky, you’d be able to see dolphins and even whales as well.

We had a great morning, despite being wet from the moment we got in the kayaks, and thoroughly enjoyed the interaction with the seals. They provide you with trousers and a jacket. These are definitely not waterproof, and are probably not even showerproof, but may be a bit windproof! We were told at that time of year - end June - the pups haven't got used to people in kayaks, so are still a bit wary but very inquisitive. Having said that we had plenty of very close interaction and had young pups playing with and lying on our oars! Soft drinks, tea, coffee, rolls and delicious shortbread biscuits after the kayaking. In addition to the seal colonies along the beach, we also saw some black back jackals and huge numbers of flamingoes.

Our half day tour with pelican point was a great experience. Francois and the entire team are knowledgeable and extremely responsive. I was able to join an existing excursion last minute, and they were very accommodating. Francois drove us out to the point where we would kayak, and kept us amused with animal sightings and stories along the way. We kayaked right alongside seals and dolphins, they came right up to us and were playful and curious! This experience doesn't involve a ton of kayaking, it's mainly out and back so not a lot of kayaking experience is needed. However, I've never had such close animal encounters like that, and I felt like This entire experience was worth it to watch so many seals frolicking amongst us. I highly recommend this if you're in Walvis bay with a morning to spare.

Our guide CJ was excellent and fascinating to listen to, not just about the wildlife, but also in general.
We didn't get off to the best start as others in our group turned up late, but he kept us up to date and we didn't feel we missed out.
The drive to the kayaking area was fun, with a lot of birds to see on the way.
Once we got to the launch site, we quickly dressed and got underway. We were warned not to touch the seals as obviously they have a sharp bite! But they did enjoy playing with our paddles. The seals seemed totally relaxed around us and enjoyed swimming under/into/beside our kayaks. It was incredible to be part of their world for a little while.
Afterwards we had sandwiches and hot drinks to warm us up then a fun ride back to the office.
I'd highly recommend this tour to anyone.

From arrival to finish everything was just super.

I lived in the area for a couple of years already and never did the kayaking. Friends recommended it and me and a friend and my 2 teenage cousins booked the tour.

Our guide Schalk met us at the waterfront and explained the tour to us. During the drive to Pelican he showed and explained various things to us.

When we kayaked, he was always around to give advice or take pictures. He showed us how to safely play with the Seals.

We all enjoyed the day out so much that we will definitely be back and I will go with Schalk again.

My family and I took a self-drive kayaking tour to Pelican Point. We were guided through the experience by Walter (aka Wally). He was super-friendly and knowledgeable.

We followed Wally’s car along the beach to Pelican Point, clipping the waves as we drove. Fantastic!

There were thousands of seals at Pelican Point. Kayaking amongst them was great. The seals appeared to be watching us as much as we were watching them!

Highly recommended.
