Namibia Dolphin and Seal Catamaran Cruises operates Yacht Manatee, a luxury catamaran.
Our Catamaran is both a motorised and sailing vessel. Our emphasis is on Sailing and all the romance and luxury associated with this fine way of traveling on the seas.
Our Catamaran is silent, even when underway with her engines.
The Catamaran offer a stable platform for viewing marine life and is ideal for elderly persons as embarking and disembarking is easy. She is child friendly and makes VIP guest spoilt with her spacious lounge and on board facilities.Toilets on board with proper wash basins make the cruise ever more pleasant.
We also have a kitchen on board so you are most welcome to enjoy a cup of coffee/tea... especially if it is a bit cool in the morning.
Our catamaran is fully crewed and tours are guided in German, English or Afrikaans.... and basic Japanese :-)
We have a number of tame seals that visit the catamaran and guests can see these animals very close. You might even have to give your seat up when a seal or pelican decides to sit where you are seated ;-)
Also of interest is the large variety of bird life in the Lagoon area.
The company is owned by Captain Carol-Ann Möller, wife of late Hans-Jörg Möller who has a Royal Yachting Association International Yacht Masters Open Water Ticket. He is also a commercial Pilot.
Our Skippers all have their commercially endorsed sailing tickets, have love for the sea and environment in their blood.
Looking forward to sailing with you.
Our Catamarans are inspected yearly by a certified marine surveyor (Mr B Bramwell) and the boats are operated in accordance with international safety standards. Our Catamarans are covered for passenger liability by our insurance agents, Alexandra Forbes. Our Catamarans are hauled out of the water annually for maintenance and inspection.
Each morning and afternoon (weather depending) we go out on the Walvis Bay Lagoon in Yacht Manatee. Pelicans land on board and seals jump on board for sushi/breakfast from the floating restaurant.
If we are lucky then dolphins will bow ride with us, we could see a Sun Fish or a turtle... and even a whale or five during season.
Please join us for an once in a life time experience.

Our tours are all guided tours and include snacks, oysters, drinks and sparkling wine.
We also do exclusive braai’s on the beach at Pelican Point under our Pelican Point Lighthouse.
Also popular are our Prawn braai’s on the Catamaran and our Fish Braai’s where in stead of the snacks we give the guests a taste of all the different fishes from the area.
Morning Seal and Dolphin Cruise
The Catamarans leave every morning at 08h15 and weather permitting sail on the lagoon in Walvis Bay. We visit the oyster farms, the wreck at Pelican Point, the lighthouse and the seal colony. We also spend time looking for dolphins, whales, leatherback turtles and Sun fish.
Sun Set Cruises
When the weather is right this is a splendid way of seeing the Walvis Bay lagoon. The tour has the same route as the morning cruise but is generally faster as there is more wind available. A great cruise for people interested in sailing
Our Catamarans can be chartered for private tours or functions. However we only charter our Catamarans with crew.
Sun Sail operates a transfer service to and from Swakopmund in its own 31 seated Mercedes coach
The Bus is also available for Charter in and around Walvis bay and Swakopmund
