During the Dolphin Cruise in Walvis Bay, Namibia, it is likely that seals will be attracted and come to your boat in search of food. You may even be lucky to have one of them come up to sit with you in the catamaran. Haviside Dolphins, endemic to this Namibian area, and Bottlenose Dolphins will look out of the crystal clear water and jump happily next to your boat.
If you are lucky, you can even spot some Leatherback Turtles. Large amounts of plankton attract the name-giving whales to the Walvis Bay lagoon between August and October.
