We went on this cruise that lasted nearly 4 hours. The captain narrated and gave us a history of Namibia with the story of how Walvis Bay became such an integral part of the current success of this area. We also learned about the creatures that live in the bay and why they thrive there. He gave a detailed story... More

As a group of friends we took a ride on the Catamaran Charter 'Silverwind'. What a pleasure it was indeed. The guide was knowledgable and well informed, the staff wonderful and the food was amazing!! Nothing beats an oyster at sea with a glass of bubbly :) Thank you to the Catamaran Charters Team. We will be back.

Walvis Bay is just beautiful. The cruise was a bit kitschy with seals and white pelicans coming on board the catamaran. The food and drink was constant. The customer service was very good.

Pelicans and seals board the katamaran quite freely. The trip was peaceful and relaxing. And we had great weather. The explanations were good though sometimes the guide seemed a bit too familiar. The fresh oysters were good. The lunch could've been nicer had they just warmed up the food. Close dolphins and seals. No whales.Still very enjoyable

We had the perfect weather sailing out into the qualm Walvis Bay with the Silversand catamaran. The group size was quite small and we all found a place to sit on the front deck. Our guide was very competent concerning not just fauna but also describing the different ships that were ankered in the bay. In the beginning a seal... More

Don't expect whales, but you will probably get an up-close visit from sea lions and pelicans and may spot dolphins too. The operator is a fountain of knowledge about the area, history, and wildlife. He did a nice job of speaking multiple languages to cater to the Germans and French speakers in addition to English. Sailed out to Pelican Point... More

We did a 'dolphin and seal' tour, although 'seal and pelican' tour would have been a better term. We did see quite some dolphins, but you shouldn't expect to get them too close. The guide was however very entertaining and informative about both the environment and maritime wildlife. Also, the seafood (oysters and calamari) they provided at the end of... More

We really enjoyed this. Of course the seals are great but we also loved the boat trip and the enthusiastic staff that explained. They were not doing this on autopilot and that showed. The buffet at the end had genuinely good food and plenty of it. Highly recommended.
