Mola Mola Cruise
Mola Mola Safaris is registered with the Namibia Tourism Board and conducts the very popular ‘morning tour’ cruise that embarks on a thrilling ski boat through a virginal and well-preserved lagoon region that boasts of calm emerald waters and a very rich and diverse bird life. For entertainment visitors get to encounter several super friendly dolphins in the sea along with a huge colony of seals (with some of them even wriggling inside the boat) and pretty pelicans gliding low just above your head. There are plenty of amazing photographic options on the cruise and visitors can expect some of the most incredible sea vistas aboard. And if that doesn’t impress visitors much, the trip finishes with a scrumptious meal of delectable oysters and other snacks served with ice-cold sparkling wine and chilled beer. The tour operates daily from 9am to 12:30pm.
Experience the magic of the amusing dolphins jiggling out of the sea and indulge in feeding the amiable seals with Starlight Rhapsody’s lagoon cruise. The best time to spot the magnificent whales is from August to October and this particular cruise option can also be privately chartered for 2-18 passengers. The trip lets visitors access some of the most desolate regions of the island and offers lip-smacking snacks and drinks aboard.
