Walvisbaai Travel Guide: 93 reviews and 249 photos

Walvisbaai is a fishing town and the capital of the fishing industry in Namibia.
But beside this it is offering interesting view into the sea life of this region of the Atlantic Ocean. We took the sightseeing cruises to see all the sea animals, seals, dolphins, penguin, sea birds and learn all about this wonderful place.

I had a surprise wonderful cruise day here, check out my tips.

    I am jealous of your boat trip... perhaps it was because we were here in the winter months but for life, love nor money we couldn't find a boat. On my quest I did manage to inadvertantly break and enter into the Ministry of Tourism though!!!

    With all the beautiful sea birds and seals, this sounds like a nice little cruise, Gil! Taking a walk by the sea, no matter if it is good for swimming or not, is always enjoyable. Even more, if a huge plate of oysters is waiting for you :)

    Stunning photos; no wonder you liked the cruise. It must have been quite an experience to have the seals jumping on board.

    Sounds like a nice cruise, Gil and enjoyed the shots of the pelicans but mostly, I am very in the mood for raw oysters now. ;)

    I did a days fishing trip from Walvisbaai. Didn't catch much that day but had a great time. Those Namibian guys start drinking a bit too early in the morning for me.

    My wish is to retire in one of those fantastic villas and party with the seals and pelicans :)

    Looks like you're awake too. Add some more info, it's a really intersting page, the whole country is "off the beaten path". Great pelican shot!
