The tour lived up to our expectations. We spent a great morning, a lot of knowledge was imparted, seals, pelicans and small dolphins could be easily observed. Unforgettable: the perseverance of the pelicans during the photo shoots and the beautiful baby seal that visited us on board. The crew was excellent, the snacks very tasty and these Namibian fresh oysters together with a glass of well-chilled sparkling wine - fantastic. A very recommendable tour! Thanks to the team!

This was one of my favorite things I did in Namibia! The guides and help on the boat were so kind and knowledgeable. Monique was just wonderful! The interactions with the marine life were so cool and unique and the whale watching was amazing!!! the hospitality shown was spectacular.

It was a wonderful trip to Roben Island, including delicious food / drinks and a visit to the pelican and sea lion on the catamaran. Kudos to the always funny German-speaking guide Ernst! Gladly again!

It was amaaaaazziiiing!!! I’d highly recommend. Being on the sea, almost in the middle of nowhere but deep blue waters is sooo calming.

They say they are only serving a snack but it's enough for a full meal.
