We had good waves that really brought the caves to life. We were only 4 passengers, had a good guide and a very safe and experienced boat driver who maneuvered the boat past the rocks quickly and with almost centimeter precision, so that we couldn't breathe. As he drove out of the cave, he waited exactly when a big wave would come in and then drove over the wave at speed so that the boat lined up at the front as if an airplane was about to take off. The four of us (2 Canadians and 2 Germans) had a lot of fun!!

The boat cruise was amazing and so worth it! The views of the coastline and the caves were unreal and our tour guides, Juan and Jorge, were amazing and made the experience so amazing! Would recommend!!!

Lots of fun. A must do when you’re staying in Lagos because you get to see all of the beautiful beaches and caves from the water. Guides were funny and informative.

We loved the activity. Marta's navigation was fantastic and the interesting facts given by Inga about the caves were amazing! A big thank you from us.

Nayem was an excellent driver, very welcoming and cooperative..
