Cornelius was very knowledgeable and was our excellent guide during this 3 hour trip in walvis bay. We saw enough seals to last us a lifetime. The lunch with sparkling wine and perfect oysters made the day.

Our group chose this option while visiting Walvis Bay. Every aspect of the trip was exceptional. Our "guide" Joe was personable, professional and knowledgable. From the minute you board, you're treated to coffee or tea. Blankets if needed. After seeing the seals, the flamingoes, the Dolphins and other wild life you're treated to surprising lunch! Oysters, calamari, hake, salmon, eggs,... More

Mike Lloyd, our guide for the day, was a hoot! Very knowledgable, funny, adventuresome and just a lot of fun. Seals, surf, flamingos and lots of other birds, black-backed jackals, and breathtaking dunes that extended into the ocean. It was almost surreal. The red sands contained particles of garnets and crystals--sand that, up close, is gorgeous. Lunch was the only... More

Dear SaraRNic - thank you for your kind words about our excursion and Mike Lloyd, our guide. We are sorry that our lunch did not meet with your expectations, but are surprised as we put a lot of effort on snacks served on our catamarans, everything is prepared fresh daily just before we depart. Could you email us so we... More

We went on this cruise that lasted nearly 4 hours. The captain narrated and gave us a history of Namibia with the story of how Walvis Bay became such an integral part of the current success of this area. We also learned about the creatures that live in the bay and why they thrive there. He gave a detailed story... More

As a group of friends we took a ride on the Catamaran Charter 'Silverwind'. What a pleasure it was indeed. The guide was knowledgable and well informed, the staff wonderful and the food was amazing!! Nothing beats an oyster at sea with a glass of bubbly :) Thank you to the Catamaran Charters Team. We will be back.

Walvis Bay is just beautiful. The cruise was a bit kitschy with seals and white pelicans coming on board the catamaran. The food and drink was constant. The customer service was very good.

Pelicans and seals board the katamaran quite freely. The trip was peaceful and relaxing. And we had great weather. The explanations were good though sometimes the guide seemed a bit too familiar. The fresh oysters were good. The lunch could've been nicer had they just warmed up the food. Close dolphins and seals. No whales.Still very enjoyable
