Kayaking at Bird Rock

1. Kayaking at Bird Rock

Launch near the historic landmark known as Bird Rock and paddle for about an hour in calm waters sheltered by the bay. Enjoy the wonderful bird life, see seals playing and dolphins swimming. See pelicans, cormorants and flamingos. Paddle for about 1 hour before enjoying some hot beverages on the beach. The brand new Fluid Synergy kayaks can be paddled solo or as a double and can accommodate a small child together with parents for fun for the whole family. Bird Rock is also known as Guano Island. Learn about one man's entrepreneurial drive to build a man-made island to harvest its “white gold.” By about 12:30 PM you’ll be back in Swakopmund to get ready for your afternoon activity.

A very interesting and not too strenuous excursion by kayak. The guide was great and was able to share very interesting facts about Bird Rock and Namibia's west coast. If you are lucky you can see dolphins and sometimes even whales further out. My tip, if possible, everyone has their own kayak. Then there will be no quarrels. All in all a successful day.

A great experience, weather wasn't the best, however we still got to see some of the ocean life. We also had an amazing guide, who did a wonderful job explaining everything.

It was very beautiful. When we all capsized, our guide kept calm and brought us safely back on land!
