Eco Marine Seal Kayaking Adventure

Eco Marine specializes in kayak tours to Pelican Point since 1997, visiting the Cape Fur Seal colony,  accompanied by flamingos, dolphins, pelicans, cormorants and other friendly marine and birdlife.

All tours start early in the morning, due to the fact that the prevailing weather conditions in Walvis Bay offer a calm period up to about 1pm.

Starting promptly each morning helps us cover the full range of sights to be seen and allows for plenty of photograph opportunities along the way.

Experience the 40km drive with Kevin and Graham in (the Kayak Mobile) to Pelican Point across the ocean's edge of the Namib Desert past protected wetlands and some of the largest salt pans in the world.

Here we start kayaking near the lighthouse and over to the seal colonies.

Excellent bird viewing is available, delightful seals, and Bottlenose Dolphins come to play around your kayak.
