10/10* Totally lived up to the hype! I can’t add much more than the previous praising comments - this experience worth every penny: awesome, funny, knowledgeable crew, super fun activity, even for beginners! Don’t miss this when you’re in Lagos! Thank you fellas once again, The Hungarians. PS: stay safe & we hope the skull won’t cry much in August!;)

Maéva Jul 30, 2021

Très bonne activité. Le staff était super sympathique, a l’écoute et encourageant lorsqu’on rencontrait des difficultés. Nous avons vu le progrès depuis les premières minutes jusqu’à la fin. Les paysages était magnifique et s’accompagnaient des explications du staff

Thomas Jul 24, 2021

Humberto and the crew did a wonderful job from start to finish. The meeting point was super easy. The amount of people on board was smaller than the larger boats. Plenty of room to sit and move around to get great views. The crew was super friendly, our guide in the water was Ricardo, and he gave great information throughout our kayak tour along the coast near Lagos. The best part though, there was plenty of time to kayak, swim, etc. and we didn’t have to paddle back to the harbor like other kayak operators.

Hannah Jul 1, 2021

This was our favorite thing we did in Lagos! All crew members were so knowledgeable and nice and funny. We had such a great experience and could not recommend it enough!

Steven Jun 23, 2021

It was a perfect adventure! We had a feeling that we knew the tour guides for years already 🙂 The instructors were very approachable and funny. The kayaks were great and communication was clear. Kayaking is a beautiful way to get to know the place better 🙂

Antonio Aug 10, 2021

El trato genial acorde a las expectativas que los comentarios que otros usuarios ha Ian realizado y el entorno es excepcional.Hicimos nuestro paseo con niños, totalmente recomendable.

Yukiko Aug 11, 2021

I actually cannot swim and was scared at the beginning. However, with warm courage and very good care of staffs, I could really enjoy my first Kajak! Thank you!!! If you are looking for which Kajak tour you should take, I strongly recommend this tour with Humberto!

Helen Aug 11, 2021

We had a great experience on this tour! The guys were very nice and thoughtful, as we were the only English speaking people on our tour, they kindly explained all the sights and caves in both English and Portuguese. At the end we got a recommendation for lunch and it was perfect. Thank you very much for this amazing experience!

Steven Aug 11, 2021

Amazing experience! Definitely recommend going at high tide so you can access all of the incredible caves and beaches! The guides were super friendly and fun to be around!

Mélanie Aug 12, 2021

Super tour en kayak des grottes de la côte de Lagos. Activité très plaisante et pas fatigante (contrairement à ce que nous pensions), accessible à tous. Nous avons apprécié la bonne humeur de l’équipage (Humberto et les 2 Ricardo), les explications étaient claires et amusantes. Nous sommes passés par de magnifiques grottes accessibles parfois uniquement en kayak, et nous avons même eu la chance de voir des dauphins sur le retour en bateau. Je recommande !!! Merci à eux pour ce moment.

Michelle Aug 12, 2021

We had the best time on this experience! Everything was great and Humberto and Ricardo were amazing hosts. Hands down the easiest/ fluid kayak adventure we've had. Our group decided to watch dolphins instead of swimming which is what we would of chose anyways and that made the trip more magical! Also, Ricardo was the prefect guide to lead us into the caves and made us laugh during the whole trip. Book this experience now, don't hesitate! Obrigada!!

Monica Aug 13, 2021

Alle übermittelten eine tolle und positive Begeisterung so das man sehr gute Energien an einem Wunderbaren Ort bekommt. Obrigada a todos- Danke 🙏🏽 🇵🇹🥰Lg Moni&Milu

Jean Aug 15, 2021

This was a super fun kayaking experience! The weather was super hot but kayaking on the water made a huge difference. Humberto’s team was awesome! We paddled though different caves and the scenery was just amazing. The wind and the current was pretty mild. Not very hard to kayak around. This is the highlight of my visit in Lagos!

Sandeep Aug 17, 2021

Fantastic kayak trip with Humberto and the crew. Ricardo led us round on the water and made us feel at complete ease. Lots of laughs and great amount of trivia whilst rowing. I’d definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to spend the afternoon exploring the caves, in the best way.

Oceane Aug 18, 2021

C'est l'activité incontournable à faire! Je vous la conseille!

Mark Aug 19, 2021

Fab experience. Really good friendly experienced crew to go kayaking with. Recommend highly👏👏👏😀

Leonie Aug 19, 2021

Tolle Erfahrung! Wir haben die späte Tour gemacht und die Farben der Felsen waren wunderschön. Sehr nette und lustige Guides, kommen gerne wieder 🙂

Isabel Aug 20, 2021

Toller Kayaktrip um die Ponta da Piedade vom Wasser aus mit Hintergrundinfos von einem einheimischen Guide zu erkunden. Keine Vorkenntnisse mit dem Kayak erforderlich. Super Crew! Wir hatten viel Spaß! 🙂

Víctor Aug 21, 2021

Excelente experiencia. Tal y como se explica en el anuncio. El trato es amable y divertido. Los tres tripulantes han estado atentos y buscando siempre la broma para distender el ambiente. Se aprecia que hablen en inglés y en español (portuñol según ellos, pero lo hablan genial). Además, he ido solo y me han preparado un kayak para mí porque ya tenía experiencia. Un detalle la botella de agua al final en el momento del baño libre. ¡Una tarde superdivertida!

Philippine Aug 22, 2021

Humberto and his team were awesome. There even tried to explain everything in French for my parents. Comments were fun, the kayak was really good and the places were absolutely beautiful. It was a really good activity I really recommend it

Brendan Aug 29, 2021

This tour was the biggest highlight of our travels so far. I can’t recommend doing this experience enough. The location where you kayak is enough to give five stars but the crew make it even better. They’re friendly and hilarious, they treated us like friends not tourists. Humberto was welcoming and funny, as was Riccardo number 1 & Riccardo number 2. The music on board made for the perfect vibe. Wish we could do this again!

Oliwia Aug 31, 2021

This was the best trip we had so far in Portugal. Amazing experience and views, but whats even more important - amazing people. They made trip super nice and fun. We loved to hear stories about beaches and caves. I highly recommend this trip if you are in Lagos

Willi Sep 2, 2021

I can wholeheartedly recommend this experience! The staff was super fun, friendly and knowledgeable. The guide was super fun as well and did not rush at all. We felt safe the whole time. In the end, we chilled for a while on the ocean so folks could jump into the water if they liked. It was an unforgettable experience. Thank you everyone!

Adriano80 Sep 2, 2021

Absolutely beautiful trip and worth every penny ! Humberto & team were amazing hosts and gave us a great time ! Definitely a MUST DO when u are around Lagos !

Miguel Sep 3, 2021

It exceeded all expectations, the staff is very friendly and communicative. it's a must go if you are in Lagos

Shannon Sep 4, 2021

This trip is an absolute must! The perfect way to get acquainted with Lagos, and the most magical views of the water and caves. The whole team were so much fun and made this a great experience.

Niklas Sep 6, 2021

Humberto und die zwei Ricardos waren wirklich super Tourguides. Mit dem Kajak die Küste sowie vereinzelte Höhlen zu erkunden hat echt mega viel Spaß gemacht. Wir können die Tour nur empfehlen.:-)

Andra Sep 8, 2021

This Kayak adventure is an amazing experience when you are in Lagos! It was such a beautiful trip with magical views on the best caves and grottes. The whole team was so funny and friendly, they explained everything perfectly so we felt very well and safe! I heartily recommend this tour to everyone who comes to Lagos.

Kerry Sep 8, 2021

Humberto and the two Ricardo's were fantastic hosts. The kayaking was a magical experience visiting caves and beaches really only accessible via kayak or boat. There were three of us and I was the only sole kayaker and Ricardo always made sure I was okay. Getting to swim around the boat at the end was a fantastic end to an utterly breathtaking experience. I would 100% recommend this activity. Thank you!!! ❤️

Reilly Sep 10, 2021

Had such a great time and the hosts were fantastic - personable and very knowledgeable of the area! We ended up seeing a lot more than I thought we would - almost the entire coastline! but with such ease and without tiring. I would definitely choose this kayaking experience to see the grottos over a boat tour!

Amina Sep 10, 2021

Super expérience, l'équipage est très sympathique, on découvre des lieux magnifiques et l'ambiance est top ! Je recommande vivement.

Marine Sep 11, 2021

Une première fois en Kayak beaucoup mieux que ce que l’on avait imaginé avec Ricardo qui a été un excellent guide avec beaucoup d’humour. A l’image du reste de l’équipe. Ils connaissent leur région sur le bout des doigts et nous ont vraiment donné envie de retenter l’expérience.

Zaria Sep 11, 2021

The Lagos Adventure hosts were super warm and humorous. It was easy to find the meeting point and the process was seamless. We were out in the water and kayaking in no time. The guide was knowledgeable, interactive, and always watching out for our safety. I had a magical time and made some new friends.

Aaron Sep 17, 2021

My wife and had been on this same tour in 2019 and were happy to book with Humberto a second time. Humberto is a friendly guy and although he wants you to have a good experience his first concern is always your safety. There were three of a crew, Humberto and two Ricardos which made remembering names a doddle. During the short trip out to where the kayaking begins one of the Ricardos gave us lots of information about the sights and the local history. Once we were in our kayaks and paddling around the caves etc we had a great time and were constantly getting information from Ricardo about the caves and how they got their names. After returning to the boat we were able to swim in the crystal clear waters or lounge up front on the boat in the glorious sunshine. I have no hesitation in recommending this experience and will do it again if we return to Lagos in the future.

Rie Sep 18, 2021

Amazing tour with warm, friendly and professional team. Caves and sea water were sooo beautiful, I had a magical time. And Ricardo is fantastic tour guide. He made the experience more fun and memorable. I would highly recommend. Thanks a lot 🙂

James Sep 25, 2021

Do this on your 1st day in Lagos. You'll learn about all of the best beaches/enclaves/swimming spots to explore for the rest of the week.

Philipp Sep 25, 2021

Es war eine super Erfahrung, die Buchten und Höhlen von Lagos mit dem Kajak zu erkunden. Die Guides waren super nett und total hilfsbereit. Wir würden die Tour am Anfang des Aufenthalts machen, da man einen super Überblick über die diversen Strände von Lagos bekommt! Definitiv eine Empfehlung!

Cathy Sep 27, 2021

This is a fantastic guided kayak tour of the sea caves near Lagos. It was such a treat to be able to go inside and hear little stories about each. We had perfectly calm waters and a warm day, the conditions were great. We went at a leisurely pace, which we appreciated. All of the guides were friendly and helpful. Make sure you read the location directions carefully. We did not and got a bit lost. We highly recommend this tour!

Christoph Sep 27, 2021

Ein sehr schöner Trip. Auch für Anfänger geeignet. In die Höhlen zu rudern, war teilweise sogar etwas anstrengend 😅 Die Crew war super hilfsbereit und immer mit einem Lächeln dabei. Nur zu empfehlen.

Morgan Sep 29, 2021

Definitely start your trip with this experience - you learn about all the best beaches and see the coastline from such a cool vantage point. The guides made us feel really safe and overall it was a wonderful experience!! ☺️

Esteban Sep 29, 2021

Genial la experiencia!👌.. yo en mi caso estoy viajando sólo y todo fue muy bien. Ha sido una experiencia muy acogedora con vistas impresionantes!😍.. te llevan en barco hasta donde empieza el paseo en kayak y luego te llevan de vuelta en barco también, lo que se agradece! recomiendo esta experiencia 100%👌

Christian Sep 30, 2021

Ohne große Erwartungen teilgenommen und komplett glücklich nach Hause gekommen! Es war wirklich super super toll! Beim nächsten Lagos Besuch zu 100% wieder!!!

Sarah Oct 4, 2021

If you wanna tour with the most friendly and funny humans on earth, take part in this tour. and well yes the view of the cliffs and caves from the other side.. no words

Abby Apr 2, 2022

This was the best experience ever! It was so surreal, and the tour guides were incredibly fun and supportive during the whole thing! They even gave us recommendations for places to eat after kayaking, and sent us the pictures they took which are so fun to look back on. Highly recommend!!!

Emily Apr 2, 2022

DEFINITELY book with Kayak Lagos Adventure!!! A large group of my friends booked this excursion and Humberto, Ricardo, and Nona were absolutely incredible hosts. They were such a blast and had us laughing from the very start. They were super kind and wanted to do everything possible to make our experience with them (and our time in Lagos) the best it could be. Ricardo was super knowledgeable about the beautiful caves and was a great story teller. Humberto went above and beyond and shared hundreds of photos he took from the boat (free of charge) and food recommendations in the area. They really wanted to make our experience unique and memorable. I seriously could not recommend this excursion any more!!! Thank you to the entire crew for being so genuine and even giving us inspirational life advice!! 🙂

Alim Apr 25, 2022

Humberto and Ricardo were excellent hosts for this kayak tour. They did a great job of not only making the tour fun and engaging, but also provided context to the history of Lagos. Ricardo was very patient while kayaking, going at just the right pace to ensure we had the opportunity to take in the wonderful views of the Lagos coastline. I highly recommend anyone to do this experience, even if it is your first time kayaking.

Liam Apr 20, 2022

Excellent tour and brilliant guide. Traveling by boatout of the Marina means you ca kayak around the coastal route with all your energy. It's really nice to have a short boat ride and talk to the guides before entering the water. You don't need to be super fit to enjoy this experience. We had a great time and it was a leisurely paddle around the coast and into the caves. You get to see a variety of rock formations and different shapes in the cliffs. If you are thinking about this trip, I would say think no more, just do it. Couldn't have had a better experiece and the best thing I did in Lagos.

Rebecca Jun 25, 2022

This trip was magical from start to finish! Humberto made it very clear where to meet him and welcomed us like old friends when we arrived. They made the atmosphere extremely comfortable and safe. Nunu was an extraordinary guide on the kayaks, giving us bits of information each step of the way. We couldn’t have asked for a better trip.

Fernando Jun 24, 2022

It was a really nice trip, with a lot of information and funny stories regarding all the great spots we saw. I had never gone kayaking before, but I always felt safe after the good and clear instructions. Congrats to the whole team and I would go out with them again any time.

Jess Jun 23, 2022

Such an amazing experience!!! the staff were super friendly & funny & made us feel very comfortable. The kayaking is so much fun & such an incredible experience! they take you to the best locations & the caves are beautiful! this was the highlight of our time here so far & we would definitely recommend it as something you have to do in lagos!! 10/10 thanks guys!!

Maria Jun 21, 2022

Humberto and his team were AMAZING!!! They went over safety in the beginning and we started our adventure right away, no time wasted. It was hubby’s and my first time in the open ocean and when we couldn’t keep up, Humberto came right over, while the other guide stayed with the group. Humberto gave us some tips on to navigate easier. It was very comforting and made me feel safe that they were always there for anything any one in the group might need. It also allowed for us to not delay the rest of the group. Eventually we did catch up. I can’t say how outstanding they were. The guide in the water gave us lots of information about the caves and rock formations, definitely would have not been able to learn about all this without them. On the way back, they gave us lots of overall information about the history of Lagos. They even gave us restaurant and beach recommendations. Don’t hesitate to book with them, they are truly professional and wonderful!!! The value for what you paid for is GREAT!

Deborah Jun 20, 2022

What a wonderful experience. I almost felt like a child, about to have a tantrum when asked to get off the kayak and come in from a swim, I loved it that much! I joined on my own among a fair few couples, but I shared a kayak with the very funny, friendly and informative Ricardo the guide. Wonderful sights in the caves you can not see from a boat. It was well worth the money. Such a friendly team of guys. They certainly love that job! Who wouldn't though with the gorgeous Lagos Coast. Thank you. Obrigada.

This experience changed my life! The seamen? Sea man? Men of the sea- were amazing. They took us though multiple beautiful caves, had a plethora of knowledge about the area, and he’s of all gave us local food recommendations which my boyfriend and I took full advantage of! BOOK THIS EXPERIENCE.

Wonderful adventure not to be missed. Personable, knowledgeable, courteous, helpful, crew made our excursion, enjoyable, and memorable. I instruction on how to use the kayaks was specific and helpful. Getting in and out of the kayaks was a stress free experience. Saw many beautiful, grottoes, and cave areas that we would not have otherwise seen. Cost is reasonable for the 2 1/2 hour excursion. I would highly recommend, and would do it again when back in Lagos.

Una experiencia increible! Vale totalmente la pena ver las playas y rocas desde el mar es mágico. Además hablan inglés y español, todo muy claro y nos ofrecieron agua después de los kayak y el chapuzon en el agua. 10/10

Highlight of my trip to Lagos! I got lucky and was traveling solo so I went with the guide in my kayak and felt so safe and we had great conversations about Portuguese history and culture. The scenery was gorgeous as well and the timing was just right. Thank you!
