Depart from the Walvis Bay Yacht Club and continue into the beautiful bay area, which holds more splendour than can at first be seen – a shipwreck, lighthouse, oyster platforms, different bird species, seals and an abundance of marine life. In the Bay Area, the catamaran will move alongside the oyster platforms.
Your guide will share more information with you about locally cultivate Walvis Bay oysters. Included in the tour is the tasting of these delicacies. The journey proceeds to the Pelican Point to achieve a closer look at the lighthouse. The old supply railway spoors can still be seen from the years when the lighthouse was occupied by the coast guards. Three different types of dolphins may be encountered, namely the Heaviside’s dolphins – endemic to the Namibian coast, dusky dolphins and Atlantic bottlenose dolphins.
In season (July-November), 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) might make an appearance. Look out for sightings of the mola mola (sunfish) and the leatherback turtles. All this can be experienced while comfortably relaxing in the saloon, on the trampolines or on deck, whilst enjoying a glass of Sparkling Wine and delicious snacks.
