Kayak Trip to Pelican Point

Kayak Trip to Pelican Point, Namibia

An excellent way to spend a morning is on a gentle kayaking trip to Pelican Point. These trips start at 07:45 from Mola Mola Safaris in Walvis Bay. You will be met here to jump aboard a landrover and set off for Pelican Point, a sand bar near Walvis Bay. A number of sturdy sea kayaks await and you will be guided to three colonies of up to around 6,000 cape fur seals. The seals love to play around the kayaks, jump and occasionally even land on one if they misjudge the distance! It's possible to see dolphins and flocks of gulls and cormorants are often overhead. There is a stop on a beach for warm brotchens (rolls) and coffee for elevenses.

No previous experience in kayaks is needed as it's a very gentle trip.
