Best Dolphin Watching Ever - Highlight of our Holiday
We are family of 5 with children aged 4 and 10. The staff were very accommodating and couldn’t have been better in many ways!!

We went first on a morning trip at 09:30. Wow!! We saw literally hundreds of Dolphins, at one point we had around 15 dolphins swimming with the boat. It was just magical. The guides knew exactly where to go and were knowledgable and gave us a really good experience.

It was that good we went and booked again for another day!

The next time we went for the trip at 11:30, unfortunately the weather conditions weren’t as good as it was very windy. Upon starting the trip , the guides managed our expectations around the rough sea and also that there was no sightings on the morning trip that day on the 9.30 trip. However due to this, Blue Fleet sent out 3 boats at 11:30 all in radio communication to increase our chances of a sighting.

The seas were very rough, and I would advise for anyone going to take a water proof jacket as you get very wet in these conditions. But they found the dolphins.
How I don’t know, like a needle in a haystack!! But they found a pod of around 20 dolphins who then swam the boat once again.

It was such a great experience and I couldn’t recommend Blue Fleet and their staff enough

Fantastic trip!
We had a brilliant time sitting at the front of the RIB. We loved bouncing along at high speed across the sea! After a while we stopped to watch the dolphins, we saw plenty and they were right next to the boat. Absolutely fantastic

Great Trip
Aug 2020
Our trip was great. Everything with Bluefleet went fine and we enjoyed the tour. At first I thought we won't see any dolphins because it took us a 30 min ride till we were that far offshore to get close to them.
I was really happy that it was not too crowded and the boats (3 all together) didn't chase the dolphins. They were swimming around us and had no fear or felt uncomfortable so they stayed a while with us before swimming somewhere else.

Amazing tour!!!
Just returned from the 11:30 tour and it was amazing!!! The boat trip to the dolphins on it's own is fun and then the first sighting of the dolphins is indescribable. You get so close to them the you can allmost touch them. The staff and crew are nice and relaxed and prepared to answer all your questions. Make sure to go to the office of blue fleet in the lagos trainstation instead of the docks. TripAdvisor leads you to the wrong meeting point

An unforgettable experience
Sep 2019 • Couples
We had such a great time dolphin watching! We had originally booked for a Saturday, but when the forecast showed rain, Bluefleet reached out to reschedule at no cost, which was much appreciated. We saw dozens of dolphins, many of whom jumped up right beside our boat. We also saw a whale - a welcome surprise! We took lots of great photos and we are so happy we booked this experience as part of our trip to Lagos. The wind is quite strong during the faster part of the boat ride, so we'd recommend bringing some sunglasses to shield your eyes.

We saw dolphins!
Aug 2019 • Friends
we found dolphins quite quickly and followed them around for quite a while. we were then taken back with an amazing view of ponte da piedade!

overall this was a great trip but we did come back before the allotted 1h45mins

compared to other companies that were offering this, the boat was better as we were sitting in pairs so no one was stuck in the middle of a row and unable to see! also, we only had 12 people on the boat which was the perfect number for everyone to have a good view.

Dolphin Trip
Aug 2019 • Family
We took the Dolphin trip and it was a great experience for the whole family (our daughters are 18 & 21). The ride out was exciting enough, but to see dolphins in the wild was incredible. And then we saw a Minke Whale as well, so felt incredibly lucky. And then a blast back into port, where the captain threw the boat around a bit on the final stretch, which thrilled our 19 year old. Highly recommended - a trip to be remembered.
