Sunsail Catamarans - Walvis Bay
When visiting the Namibian Coast, it is imperative to experience a boat trip on the famous Walvis Bay Lagoon. Sun Sail Charters operates 3 luxurious Catamarans, seating 15-30 people. The Catamarans offer a stable platform for viewing marine life, also offering toilets on board and proper wash basins. The company places great emphasis on Sailing to make the trip a pleasant experience. The vessels are silent, even when underway with their engines. The compan's signature trip is the 'Dolphin Cruise' which leaves from the Walvis Bay lagoon every morning at 08h15 and 10h00. During the 4 hour cruise one may experience close encounters with seals, dolphins, whales, turtles, sun fish and a variety of sea birds. Some cape fur seals are accustomed to people and entertain the guests by jumping on board. Oyster farms, a ship wreck at Pelican Point, the lighthouse and the seal colony are visited. Fresh oysters and champagne is part of the cruise. A range of other trips or parties on the boat or beach can be organised.
