Surprises on boat trip!

A good trip, though very cold.
Did feel that maybe blankets could have been provided..
We were kept waiting an hour before boarding
The sealion and pelicans on board provided entertainment!!

Super marine cruise

Only problem was that we had not been told which company we were sailing with as there are quite a few leaving from the same location! However once sorted out all went well.

Gentle sail on the catamaran with surprise guests - seal, pelicans, jelly fish. Lots of noisy seals and a few penguins. Good commentary. Lunch was super - too much to eat and beautifully presented and managed.

A recommended trip

Harbour cruise

Again the bad weather prevented us going out for very long, this time it was the fog in Walvis Bay.
It was perhaps very touristy but none the less we saw the Benguela Dolphin but did not stay all that long at the seal colony cause of weather

Seals ahoy!

A thoroughly enjoyable morning. Seals on the boat were great fun - especially when one decided to sit on Martin's lap! The highlights for us however were the pelicans flying alongside the boat and Fritz the cormorant perching on the rail, allowing us to see just how beautiful he was.

An entire separate platter of food had been prepared for me to take my cheese allergy into account - many thanks to Mola Mola for their thoughtfulness. Throughout the trip the quality of food and drink available was excellent.

Sitting with seals in Walvis Bay

Graham went on this trip alone as I get horribly seasick. He thoroughly enjoyed it and has a terrific photo of him sitting beside one of the seals that climb on board and fraternise with the passengers. Food and refreshments were excellent and it was a very worthwhile trip run by a very professional and "green" company, Mola Mola.

Dolphin and seal cruise

This tour is aimed at the wider market - there is a core of tourists staying in Swakopmund and Walvis Bay. It did however guarantee that you sawe lots of interesting things, even if the other passengers were not keenly interested in wildlife. We saw seals, two kinds of dolphin, pelicans and other birds, and had a good journey around and out of Walvis Bay.

The trip left at around 09.30 and there was a (longish) stop for lunch and champagne at around 11.30 - which we could have done without. However, it seems that all harbour cruises offer the same thing.

Dolphin cruise

The cruise was pleasurable and successful.

However, the info you supplied instructed us to be at Walvis Bay at 0730 whereas the cruise started at 0900.
