"OK...probably not quite as good as we were ex"
Some really nice views of the flamingos on the way back to Walvis Bay though. Our guide was great and pointed out jackals and all the different birds. For us the highlight was (unexpectedly) the flamingos rather than the seals. Similar to Sandwich harbour, there were lots of dead or dying seals on Pelican Point, so tough to watch."

"A memorable morning!"
To kayak amongst curious seals which you can virtually touch is an incredible wildlife experience. The trip to Pelican Point is also very good, with lots of wildlife to see along the way. Really really good outing and much enjoyed by all the family. The guides were great.
The only - small - thing they could have done is explain a bit more clearly what the plan for the kayaking actually was - we were launched without any clear indication of where we were going, how far, what the guides themselves would be doing.
No worries - we soon figured it out! Don't miss this trip." Read more about this whole safari
"Not much kayaking"
On the drive there and back, the guide was very informative though and provided good information about the area and the wildlife." Read more about this whole safari
It was sorted out eventually. the Guide from Pelican Point who we ended up with KJ? spent far too much time talking about himself rather than the seals which detracted from what was a great experience." Read more about this whole safari
"Kayaking with seals review"
And being with the juvenile sea lions was a real treat. Could have hoped to spend more time on the water, but Kevin very reasonably brought up the issue of not spending a lot of time with animals.
The kayaks and other equipment was very good." Read more about this whole safari
"Great fun with the seal pups"
SJ was a jovial leader and encouraged us to drift around while seals dived under us, rolled contentedly onto their backs and even tried to get on the kayaks.
Well worth doing." Read more about this whole safari
