We were staying in Lagos and met up with our guide Nelson in Raposeira. From the meeting point we drove 5 minutes up to the cost. We got suited up with our gear and started our fun. Jumping, climbing, jumping, climbing and this continued until we made it to 10 meters. Nelson, was a fantastic guide, he cared about our comfort and our safety. What a fantastic day!!!

We had an amazing time on our sea kayak trip. The crew made the amazing experience even more enjoyable! We even saw dolphins!! Would highly recommend this trip for others!!

Narrator was funny and informative. Water conditions were ok, a bit windy on the way back which kicked up some waves but you have to expect that!
