Would highly recommend this tour. Kevin is extremely knowledgable and friendly. We had an excellent time in the kayaks with the seals playing all around us. Delicious picnic on the beach to follow. A must if you’re visiting Walvis Bay or Swakopmund.

We joined this tour and found it to be excellent. Kevin was interesting to:be around and super knowledgeable and animals, the area and country. The duration is perfect. The highlight is the young seals and their antics. The ride in the truck is comfortable and interesting to learn about the area and the unique sea currents that cause this concentration of birds and animals. We also liked the 8 am departure and return by about 11:30 am, we were staying at the protea pelican next door to the pickup point, and were able to also do another activity that afternoon. We highly recommend this, well worth the time and money.

We had an amazing time kayaking with seals in Walvis Bay thanks to Kevin and Graham. The guides are knowledgeable and provided lots of information about the wildlife we saw (flamingos, jackals, and seals among others). Besides kayaks and paddles, the equipment also included dry bags for personal belongings, water-resistant tops and bottoms to put on while kayaking, and obviously life jackets. Being in the water so close to so many seals and interacting with them was just magical. I particularly appreciated the respect that Kevin and Graham showed for the wildlife around us and the care they put in inspiring the same level of awe and respect in all the participants. They gave us tips on how to interact with seals without harassing them, which is extremely important in activities that involve wildlife. After coming back to shore, they offered us snacks and drinks before driving us back to the meeting point. They also took pictures of us while kayaking and sent them to us shortly after the trip. Fun, knowledgeable, professional, and environmentally conscious. They have it all!

Kevin picked us up at the cruise ship dock right on time. We hopped in his comfortable van with kayaks attached in the rear. We had a 45 minute ride out to pelican point including several surreal stops for flamingos in National Geographic light settings. Photos are as good as anything in a travel magazine. Water was like glass and birds reflected perfectly. Kevin went on to explain the fascinating salt mining process where we got to see the deep ruby red rivers of expended water No one was prepared for the marvelous sight of 50,000 seals including all the newborn baby seals. Kevin told us when he was a youngster growing up in the area the seal colony was roughly several hundred. Now that it’s a protected area together with ideal conditions it has grown exponentially. The ocean was calm and after donning wetsuits we were out paddling among these curious creatures. One of our group had a hitchhiker for at least half an hour grooming herself on the rear of their kayak. Absolutely hilarious. The seals are very curious and like to nibble at the end of your paddle. Reluctantly we made it back to where Kevin and Graham had set up a lovely picnic lunch It would be hard to imagine a better day spent in Namibia Thanks so much Kevin and Graham. You’re the best
