Something really special on the Atlantic
For years there have been operators offering tours in the Walvis Bay Lagoon, showing guests sea gulls and cormorants, seal colonies and schools of dolphins and with a bit of luck sunfish and humpback wales. The visitors mostly only have to decide if they prefer going by motor boat or by catamaran. Only few are aware of the tours offered by Eco Marine Kayak Tours, which are something special in the Walvis Bay / Swakopmund area.
The difference: Everybody is his own skipper and can do with his kayak as he / she pleases in the Lagoon of Walvis Bay. Nowhere else will you get as close to flamingos and pelicans, seals, Heaviside’s and Benguela dolphins as with a kayak. Jeanne Meintjes, company owner and also the guide accompanying every tour, correctly claims that these tours are simply magical.
The Eco Marine Tour starts at 07:45 hrs in the morning and guests will be picked up at the Dolphin Cafe of Mola Mola at the Walvis Bay tourist harbour. Jeanne drives with the guests (minimum 2 / maximum 12) to Pelican Point, where the kayak ride begins. The tour takes about five hours, half of which is spent in the kayak.
Single- as well as double kayaks are available. No previous kayaking experience is required for the tour. Jeanne takes care of all safety precautions, but one should not be afraid of water as the seals sometimes enjoy jumping next to the boats, splashing water onto its skipper. At the end of the Eco Marine Tour Jeanne collects the e-mail adresses of all participants in order to send everyone some photos – free of charge.
