Dolphin Cruises with Mola Mola Safaris

Mola Mola Safaris is an marine activity operator based in Walvis Bay, at the Waterfront – Namibia. They offer Marine Cruises, Marine-Dune 4×4 excursions into Sandwich Harbour and a general information centre.
For almost two decades Mola Mola has taken thousands of guests up close and personal with not only seals, dolphins, pelicans and whales, but also shared with them the friendly hospitality Namibia is known for. Whether it is a morning on the water with adventure, drinks food and the best Walvis Bay oysters, or perhaps a full Marine Dune day where you will visit the spectacular Sandwich Harbour and drive through the massive sand dunes, Mola Mola is a part of your Namibian adventure not to be missed!

Boat cruises: Mola Mola boat cruises are very popular with independent travelers as well as incentive and conference groups who visit the Namibian coastline. Our six boats can load between 10 and 30 guests each.  They are registered for loading capacity and the persons per boat number is strictly adhered to.  Throughout the various marine cruises, the boats stay in the protected lagoon area of Walvis Bay where the water is calm and abundant with bird life.
Mola Mola  cruises generally depart in the morning and the cruise route can include the Harbour, the oyster lines, the lagoon and Pelican Point.  Some of the distinct features of our cruises  include Pelican Point which is home to a large Cape Fur seal colony, schools of dolphins swimming alongside the boats and curious seals coming right up to – and onto – the boats for something to eat.
The Walvis Bay lagoon is also a bird lovers paradise, apart from seeing many flamingos, cormorants, and pelicans, there are common sightings of the White Chinned Petrel, Wilson’s Storm Petrel,  Cape Gannet,  Black Oystercatcher, and even the Jackass Penguin.  Pelicans also provide wonderful photographic opportunities while flying alongside the boats. During the cruise you will also enjoy fresh Walvis Bay oysters, a light lunch, cold sparkling wine and other drinks which are served on board before your return to the Waterfront.

Marine Life:
Namibia’s desert coast is teeming with beautiful marine life and, at Mola Mola, we aim to take you on an adventure that will allow you to meet many of these beautiful creatures. We almost always see dolphins while out on the water, as well as whales if it’s during the right season. Another regular on our tours is the Mola Mola Sunfish, which is endemic to the waters of Walvis Bay.
Additionally, our cruises traverse the oyster lines that are used to farm this internationally acclaimed delicacy. They  also visit the colony of Cape Fur Seals, where these adventurous sea animals put on a show for you by playing in the surface and often come right up to the boat to say hello.
