Owner description: A new philosophy, a boat for all ages... after a coastal cruise along the beautiful Lagos Golden Coast, the fun starts.. at this stage of the trip, everyone can have a go at our brand new clear bottom kayaks, the inflatable aquapark, snorkelling, family fishing or enjoy a boat ride and see the grottoes. Freedom and fun for all! Pay less and enjoy much, much more!

My boyfriend really wanted to kayak which is why we went for this. Neither of us can swim but we were reassured by the man selling the tickets that this was supervised. Unfortunately their idea of supervision and my idea of supervision is vastly different. When we stepped in to kayak we were given no instructions whatsoever on safety or how to kayak. The 'supervisor' then headed off away in front and far out of earshot had anyone got into bother. The water was a little choppy made worse by the large amount of boats and jet skis etc around us so our kayak took on a lot of water. So much in fact that the kayak was completely submerged and we were unable to get the 'supervisor's attention as he was so far away from us! Once back (safely) on the boat those who could swim were able to snorkel and swim around the boat.There was also a trampoline but by the time we made it onto the boat it already had a large crowd. Cost €60 for both of us which we felt was a waste of money. We were very disappointed. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone, especially if you can't swim or have never kayaked before

This trip was the best excursion on our holiday, it cost approx €80 for 2 adults and 2 children. This included the main boat trip, trampolining off the boat, taking a smaller boat tour around the caves and a cool drink of your choice. There are bathrooms onboard, big waterproof beanbags to lounge on. The staff were amazing, friendly, really informative and great fun. my youngest (5) couldn't do trampolining due to an injury so they let him help steer the big boat, this made his holiday, money well spent!

After being recommended the trip by another family, I took my family of five including 3 teenage boys and we had a very enjoyable two and a half hours. We boarded the boat from the marina in Lagos, and within 15 mins we were at the cove. There was then a choice of kayaking around the cove and caves, or be taken round in a motor boat. We took the lazy option and were driven through the myriad of caves in the cliffs. This made good photo opportunities, and took about 20 mins, rather than 1 hr 30 for the people that kayaked. This gave us more time on the boat where we were able to snorkel, or lark about on a floating platform that was moored off the back of the boat - the kids loved this! The staff were very friendly and helpful. The first drink was free, then subsequent drinks were only 1 euro which was cheaper than we were paying in the shops! A very enjoyable afternoon.

We went on this boat trip in the afternoon. Cruised out and then kayaked with a guide around the cliffs and caves. Amazing sights and a fun tour. Boat staff were all welcoming and friendly. Must do when visiting Lagos!
