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.

This experience with Joao and Tomas is was amazing! We visit ponta da piedade we did paddle board in the big waves it’s was amazing experience I highly recommend best boat ever!

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.
