Get to Know Walvis Bay

Surf some sand dunes, indulge in fresh seafood and cruise on a catamaran to see the local marine wildlife.

Walvis Bay is often overshadowed by her nearby neighbour, Swakopmund. She does not have the wide streets, lined with impressive German architecture and arcades filled with African curios. What she does have is an international airport and a lagoon that attracts water sports fanatics and foodies from all over the world.

The lagoon is home to marine wildlife like dolphins, Cape fur seals, pelicans and flamingoes.One of the best ways to experience the indigenous marine life is on a chartered catamaran boat. There are few things as exhilarating as cruising on the lagoon, with a flock of pelicans flying in tandem next to the boat.

The nutrient-rich waters of the lagoon is also ideal for cultivating oysters, and most catamaran tours include an oyster platter, freshly harvested and shucked. Forget about condiments like Tabasco sauce and lemon juice, these juicy giants are best served with a dash of black pepper to compliment the saltiness of the sea water, knocked back and followed up with a sip of very dry white or sparkling wine.
