Pelican Point Kayaking

Duration: 4 Hours
Start: Walvis Bay, Namibia
End: Walvis Bay, Namibia
Languages: English
Get into a kayak and join seals and dolphins for a paddle at the tip of the remote Pelican Point peninsula.

Pelican Point provides a home to up to 50.000 Cape Fur seals, lots of Heaviside's and Bottlenose dolphins, black-backed jackals, flamingoes, pelicans and even the brown hyena.

Every morning, you are able to get into kayaks and join seals and dolphins for a paddle at the tip of the remote Pelican Point peninsula. On the 4x4 drive to our Kayaking site, you will get to see the Walvis Bay wetlands with plenty of birds including flamingos and pelicans, and the salt mine, which is one of the biggest in the world. The seals are very playful and love to interact with the kayaks.

Experience the thrill of seals coming up to the kayaks to play with the paddles and to splash water at guests. On a kayak, you become part of the ocean without disturbing the wildlife. The animals do not see kayaks as a threat in any way, and therefore you have the opportunity to enjoy them in their natural habitat, without interfering with their natural behavior.

The tour starts at the Waterfront in Walvis Bay. You will be taken in a 4x4 vehicle on a scenic drive along the Walvis Bay Lagoon and the salt mines to Pelican Point. There will be stops along the way to take pictures of the countless flamingoes, pelicans, large flocks of cormorants and a great variety of other birds and wildlife.  After an one hour you will reach Pelican Point where you will be greeted by thousands of seals. You will be assigned double kayaks and get ready for paddling.  The seals are very friendly and playful and not scared of our Kayaks, even when you paddle right next to them. They are inquisitive and often come within touching distance of the Kayaks.

You don't need to be fit or experienced to enjoy a morning of kayaking with the seals. The tour stays on the protected side of the peninsula, where the water is very calm.

You will spend approx 1.5 hours on the water, depending on general weather conditions. The guides will use a waterproof camera for some photos, which we be emailed to you within a few days after the tour, so you don't have to get your own camera wet. 

After Kayaking, you will have a chance to recharge during breakfast with some fresh rolls and coffee and tea, before you head back to Walvis Bay. Return time is between 12h00 and 12h30.
