Kayak and Snorkel Trip in Lagos

Your sea kayak tour begins at Cais de Solaria in Lagos, where you'll meet your guide and be outfitted with your kayak and paddle, water proof bag and life jacket. All levels are welcome, from beginners to advanced kayakers; your experienced guide, who is up to date on local wind, current, and tide conditions, leads the tour and is glad to keep an eye on you and answer any questions you may have. Once you're on the water, paddle through fascinating rock formations, observing their details in a way that would be impossible if you were traveling on a boat.Stop to snorkel and swim at a deserted beach next to Praia Dona Ana (equipment provided), and enjoy an off-the-beaten-path location that you don't have to share with crowds of people—you’ll practically have it all to yourself. Spend at least half an hour at the beach swimming, snorkeling, and relaxing. A motorized support boat follows your group to make sure that everyone is safe and sound. Note: Children who are at least 5 years old are welcome to take part, provided that they know how to swim.
