My Partner and I had a fantastic time on this kayaking trip. Pickup location was easy to find, and left on time. We all boarded the boat and left the harbour with our expert guide explaining the trip and any key features along the way. Within 15-20mins we had arrived at Praia de Dona Ana were we all jumped in 2 person kayaks. We then kayaked from there to Ponta de Piedade (and maybe a little further), going onto sea caves, through rock arches. Our guide was very knowledgeable and very fun. He also kept everyone safe, advising were to be careful. Once we had finished the kayak, we were able to swim in the ocean which was lovely and refreshing as it was very warm kayaking. We had a blast and this activity was the highlight of our stay on Lagos. I would highly recommend this activity if your in Lagos, as it was easy, very fun and a great was to see the sea cliffs, beaches and caves.

The meeting place is the gate on the information form. Do not plan on changing on the boat if possible. There is only a small bathroom. Do wear water shoes on the kayak. Kayaking through the caves was a great experience and the guides were fun and knowledgeable.

We had a wonderful kayak tour! Everybody was super friendly and cheerful. We went with a group of four, my parents also enjoyed it very much. Definitely recommend!

Fantastic crew. Good value for the money. Felt safe and well-looked after. Only thing is I couldn't hear our guide sometimes. Need a mic system or something.

We loved the tour! Getting to know the grutas with a kayak is the best way to do it. :)
