Catamaran Charters

…From meeting with Pelicans to feeding Seals, and if luck permits, leaping Dolphins and shy Turtles…all this and more on our morning Dolphin and Seal Cruises…

Come sail with us on our 45’ Royal Cape Catamaran Silverwind or on our 60’ Simonis Catamaran Silversand or join us on our motorised 40’Admiral Catamaran Silvermoon - and experience the Bay in luxury, style and comfort!

Our morning ‘Dolphin and Seal Cruises’ are from 08:30 till 12:30. Once aboard, the journey starts from the Walvis Bay Waterfront and continues into the beautiful Bay Area, which holds more beauty than the eye can at first capture – A Shipwreck, Lighthouse, Oyster Platforms, different Bird species, Seals and more Marine Life.

 
 

In the Bay Area, our catamarans pass the Oyster Platforms. Along this route, your guide will share more information with you about the Walvis Bay cultivated Oysters. Included in the tour is the tasting of these delicacies.

The catamarans will then proceed to the ever-growing Pelican Point to have a closer look at Walvis Bay’s Lighthouse.  The old supply railway spoors can still be seen from the years when the Lighthouse was still occupied by the Coast Guards.  Pelican Point also has its own little Jetty, but this facility is only used for our Corporate and Closed Charters.

Moving around the Point, 3 different types of Dolphins may be encountered, namely: the Heavyside Dolphins – which are the most important, as they are endemic to the coast of Namibia, Dusky Dolphins and Atlantic Bottlenose Dolphins. 

In Season, the larger mammals like the Southern Right Whale and the Humpback Whales may be spotted and with a bit of extra special luck, the mighty Killer Whales (Orcas).

Sightings of the Mola Mola (Sunfish) and the Leatherback Turtles also keep our guest on the look out!

All this can be seen while comfortably relaxing in the Saloon, trampolines or on deck, whilst enjoying a glass of Sparkling Wine and snacks.
