Pelican Point Kayaking Half-Day Tour
From US$50.85
Pelican Point is a great place to see marine life in Walvis Bay—a colony of tens of thousands of Cape fur seals makes its home there year-round—but it is not particularly easy to get to. This tour takes you along the lagoon and salt mines to the point on a 4x4 vehicle, and provides the kayaking know-how to cruise the protected part of the peninsula near the colony.
What to Expect

This Pelican Point Kayaking Tour gives you the opportunity to kayak among a permanent seal colony at the tip of the Pelican Point Peninsula about 35 km outside of Walvis Bay.

The tour starts at 7:45am (September - April) or 8h30 (May-August) at the Walvis Bay Waterfront, where you meet one of your kayaking guides. They will take you in a 4x4 vehicle on a scenic drive along the Walvis Bay Lagoon and the salt mines to Pelican Point. Stop along the way to take pictures of countless flamingos, pelicans, large flocks of cormorants and great variety of other birds and wildlife.

After approximately one hour, reach Pelican Point where you will get your Kayaks ready for adventure. It's provided waterproof clothing and boots for you. Your Kayak guide will give you a safety briefing on how to use the equipment and our local conditions. The kayaks are moulded plastic sit-inside double or single kayaks. They are very stable and suitable for inexperienced paddlers too.

Pelican Point is home up to 50.000 Cape Fur Seals all year round. They are very friendly and playful and not scared of our Kayaks, even when you paddle right next to them.

The kayaking takes place on the protected side of the peninsula. Spend around 2 hours on the ocean, depending on general weather conditions. Your guide will use a waterproof camera for some photos, which will email to you after the tour.

After Kayaking, recharge during breakfast with some fresh rolls and coffee and tea, before heading back to Walvis Bay. Return time is between 12h00 and 12:30pm.

Up close and personal with thousands of seals
