“Highly recommended! A great experience.”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

We actually contacted Southwest Charters with regards to power boat charter, as there were none available during our stay we instead chartered the Beneteau Oceanis 411 for a half day sailing trip, it was fantastic! Its not the cheapest activity but when you work out the cost of separate dolphin and cave trips for 5 people its a big contribution towards a private charter; which is in a different league! We were novices and it is hard to explain to anyone who has not sailed before but it was extremely chilled out and relaxing. We headed west to take in the wonderful coastline of Lagos, the grottos, porto de mos and luz (hoping to spot some dolphins!) before anchoring at a secret beach and diving off the boat. On the way back we put the sails up and let the wind power us which was a beautiful experience, no noise & being propelled through the waves really gives you a wonderful perspective and impression of the ocean and coastline. Our crew were very friendly, happy to take us where we wanted and making us feel comfortable. We cant wait until next time were in lagos. Thanks to Ineke, Pedro and Emma.

We rented last year several times the sunseeker yacht and the salingboat. It was a great experience. The crew and the captain were very friendly and the service was top! Try it yourself and you know it!!

“adventurous sailing and perfect service!”
Reviewed June 1, 2012

here you can book a boattrip of every kind you like! We went sailing along the coast in a well maintained and equiped sailingboat. We did a course to get a sailingcertificate and were enjoying every minute of it. Also there are other trips possible or they make it happen for you. People in the office are making your holidaydream come true and no question is to much. Reasonable prices and good quality!
