Brilliant trip for the whole family. If you have not done a trip along the Atlantic ocean I would definitely advise you to visit Laramon tours. They have excellent knowledge of the harbour and sea life along the Walvisbay / Swakopmund coastline. This three hour trip is definitely worth your while. Well equipped with seating along different sections of the... More

We were picked up around 8 am from our Swakopmund accommodation and transferred to Walvis Bay for the three hour cruise around the bay. The group was too large for everyone to fit onto a single catamaran, so the organisers separated those wanting a German-speaking guide / skipper from the rest of us (with an English-speaking guide / skipper). Still... More

Dear WorldwideAtraveler Thank you for your submission and feedback on our tour. It is unfortunate that the skipper did not find time to have you take pictures of the flamingos, but hopefully you'll be back again someday to do just that.

A pick up at our accommodation in Swakopmund at 7.50am, followed by a 30 minute drive to Walvis Bay harbour. Time for a quick mooch around the harbourside shops before embarking onto the boat for a 9am departure. Good space on the main deck and above for about 40 people in total. A welcome glass (or two) of sherry while... More

If you are in Walvisbaai or Swakopmund, this is a must-do activity! You see sealions, pelicans and flamingos from close-by! If you are lucky, you will also see dolphins. The crew of our boat really did their best to find the dolphins and after some time they found them! For people staying in Swakopmund, they offer a free pick-up!

This cruise was amazing. No sooner were we boarded than a huge fur seal climbed up over the stern of the boat to mingle with the passengers. He hopped off as we left the harbour but we were then visited by huge pelicans who sat on the bow, the roof and down the on sides of the catamaran. They flew... More

It started off a little uncertain as we were told to check in at the Walvis Bay Waterfront at 07.45. At 08.10 we still weren't sure who to speak to and what was happening. That was quickly sorted out then once some of the key Laramon guys pitched up and explained about delays getting permits in the morning etc. Anyway,... More

I wasn't sure what to expect. I was afraid that the harbour tour might be a little tame and the 4 x 4 trip to Sandwich Harbour might be boring. I was very wrong on both counts.
