About Catamaran Charters
From meeting pelicans to viewing playful seals and, if luck permits, leaping dolphins and shy turtles - all this and more on our daily morning educational dolphin and seal cruises. We depart at 09h00 (check-in 08h30) every morning from our Jetty at the Walvis Bay Waterfront for a marine educational sightseeing tour in the bay area in search of the marine big 5: Whales, Dolphins, Mola, Leatherback turtle and seals. While serving hot coffee and tea, our initial route takes us past oyster farms to Pelican Point with its landmark lighthouse and 60,000 resident Cape Fur Seals. In season (July to November), larger mammals such as the Southern Right Whale and Humpback Whales are often spotted. Bottlenose, Heaviside and Dusky dolphins are regularly seen, as are Mola Molas and Leatherback Turtles. Our journey from Pelican Point takes us past some of the more interesting ships and oil rigs in the bay as we serve fresh oysters with sparkling wine, savoury snacks and desserts.

Marine Desert Adventure Full Day Tour from Walvis Bay

Watch for Namibia’s ‘marine big five’ wildlife on a catamaran cruise from Walvis Bay, then come ashore at Sandwich Harbour for a 4WD adventure to a flamingo lagoon, the Walvis Bay salt pans, and the Kuiseb River Delta. By coordinating sailing and off-road tours, you'll have even more time to explore Namibia by sea and land; choosing a catamaran ensures plenty of space and more stability than a single-hulled boat.

Dolphin and Seal Cruise

Sail from Walvis Bay to Pelican Point on a half-day wildlife cruise that searches for dolphins, leatherback turtles, and whales in their scenic natural habitat. A gourmet snack of oysters, sparkling wine, hot drinks, cakes, and appetizers turns the morning sail into an extra special occasion, and sailing in a catamaran means more deck space and a smoother ride than a trip by monohull boat.

Our Namibian guide had arranged this tour for us aboard the catamaran Dream Chaser. On boarding the boat we selected seats near the bow on the right hand side. Several of the large African pelicans were on board. Upon leaving the dock the crew explained about them and fed
