"Sea Kayaking with seal at Pelican Point"
It would have been worth knowing that she supplies warm clothing, wet shoes, wet glooves, if you want them. We had taken stuff with us which turned out not to be necessary. Also useful to know that she has a choice of double or single kayaks for those less confident paddlers." Read more about this whole safari

"Kayaking with seals"
Wonderful experience by having to encounter with the nature! It was unforgetable moment for both of us by playing with seals.
Bit disappointed with the dolphins for not being socialable at this occasion!" Read more about this whole safari

"All at sea(ls and dolphins), whales ahoy"
Jeanne is a first rate operator. We really, really, really enjoyed the morning in Walvis Bay. We got absolutely soaked despite all the wet weather gear because of our incompetence, but we laughed so much that we soon dried off. We didn't stop talking about it for days after.
The trip was superb, well organised, very safe (despite several members of our party being very apprehensive rght up to launch time) and great fun. The fact that Hazel, one of Jeanne's team, bought her 2 year old with her gave some confidence to the doubters. The seals were a delight, the small dolphins (Benguelas?) came almost on board and we saw bottle-nosed dolphins and whales from a respectful distance - just as well for some of our number, given their size and the speed they were travelling at! The dolphins and whales I mean, not our team - they were appallingly slow most of the time and absolutely lacking in sea skills, unlike the bay's natural inhabitants.
The kayaks were very easy to drive (?) despite our total absence of experience - we did plan to take lessons before we went, just in case, but you know how time flies when you don't really want to do something ................... Glad we didn't bother with training, it was much better to go out on the water without a clue what we were doing. We would have forgotten anything we learned anyway in all the excitement.
Don't let any of your clients pass up the opportunity to try the experience, they wouldn't know what they had missed" Read more about this whole safari
