Fantastic Day out

My boys aged 11 and 14 absolutely loved it. We started off by passing the rock formations and then headed off to anchor up for lunch and fun activities in the water. The kids had the best time jumping off the boat and made full use of the Paddle boards provided and loved the inflatables that they had to try and get across without falling in to get a prize. Lunch was served and was a tasty bowl of pasta, chicken and salad. Along with complimentary drinks of your choice. Really good. The crew were excellent. Informative and great fun and very laid back. My youngest boy wanted to do it all again the next day. Such good value for money too. I'd highly recommend it.

This was a wonderful experience going all around the coast of Lagos and a great way to see the area without booking a separate tour. They provided stand up paddle boards and an obstacle to play on and if you win, you get a free beer. The lunch was so-so which was the only downfall of the trip. This is great for a small or large group and the crew is absolutely fantastic!

I would highly recommend this activity

The crew were fabulous - Highly informative, fun to be around, very friendly and helped when ever we needed anything. The boat was clean (even the loos!) with plenty of space to move around. The paddle boarding after lunch was a good break after sunbathing on the front netting and the sea refreshing! The rock formation on the journey is spectacular and we loved hearing all about the local history surrounding the area. All in all - a great way to spend 4 hours of your holiday.
