During our stay in Lagos, we enjoyed a couple of trips with Days of Adventure. Based around the marina, their bright orange branding is highly visible.

Probably the highlight for us was the GROTTO TOUR, which at €10 a piece was an absolute bargain. Our guide, Pedro, a cross between Rip Torn and Richard Dreyfus, was extremely knowledgeable, funny, and an excellent boatman, safely steering our little boat around, and through, many grottos whilst pausing to provide sufficient time for those all-important photo opportunities. Pedro's commentary was fantastic, and he is a credit to his profession. Our small boat carried 12 persons on the trip, just the right amount to enable everyone to have a great view. The trip took just over 90 minutes. 

Encouraged by the grotto tour, we enquired at one of their stands around the marina regarding the DOLPHIN TRIP. When we mentioned that we'd been on the grotto tour, we were offered a €10 discount, thus costing €40 for the pair of us. Nice one, thanks! Although the dolphin trip was less 'personable', and certainly would've benefitted from a commentary of some sort whilst we were travelling to/from the dolphins, it was splendid when we reached the dolphin rendezvous point. (Our guide did explain before we set off that dolphins are not guaranteed - they are wild animals after all!- but that they had a number of pilot boats out to locate the dolphins, and they would radio us their position, thus increasing the probability of a good sighting). We met the dolphins, with the boat crew taking care to 'encourage' the dolphins without causing them any distress, and it was truly magical to see them racing alongside our boat. This tour took just under 2 hours in total, as the dolphins are some way out. The dolphin tour is provided by a big boat, so no turbulence from the tide!

I really cannot recommend these tours enough - no trip to Lagos would be complete without them.

My husband daughter and I did the kayak experience while on holiday in Lagos. Really well organised, great fun, safe and certainly the very best way to see the gritto's. Had 3 great guides (Don Pedro was by far the best looking :-) even provided a history lesson on the way. If there is one trip you do whilst here I would make it this one.

This two hour boat trip was great fun. The crew (including Zuca the portugese water dog) were very helpful, friendly and informative. We were very lucky to see plenty of dolphins, a lovely sight, The crew gave us plenty of time to take photos and went out of their way to make sure everyone had the opportunity the see and photograph the dolphins. The return journey passed by the rocky shoreline giving us chance to see the caves and grottos famous along this part of the coat. The star of the show was undoubtedly the dog Zuca who had a special gift of scenting the dolphins long before they could be seen with the naked eye. He certainly enjoyed his role as the boat's top dog.

If you're coming to the Lagos area and want a couple of hours of really great value fun .... DO THE KAYAK TOURS at Lagos Marina. We did the early Saturday morning tour (9am) and my wife was a little anxious to say the least as she's not good on water .... it was EXCELLENT. Really interesting to see the grottos from inside and such good fun. Don't worry if you've never kayaked - you'll learn very quickly and it really is great fun. Make sure you head off somewhere to eat afterwards though - you'll build up a hunger. A good place to eat would be the Lighthouse just above the booking office.
We live in the Algarve, which is great news because it means we can do this again .... and we will
