I wasn’t too sure about this as I can easily get sea sick but I thought I’d give it a go as my boyfriend really wanted to do it. We’d found out about it on the internet and as we weren’t staying in Lagos we had to fill in a booking form online and pay on the day whereas I think you can book and pay in advance if your in Lagos. The trip was advertised at 3 hours for 25 euros each. All the kayaks were double which meant if there were an odd number in your group you had to share with someone you didn’t know. We were allowed to store anything in their van, such as clothes and shoes, and we were given a waterproof bag for any valuables. You definitely get wet so id recommend bare feet and your swimwear under your shorts and top. We were given our life jackets and a safety briefing and then shown how to use a kayak. We were split into two groups, with a guide for each group. Both guides were English. There was also a small support boat that would follow us for anyone that got tired or felt sick. We set of in the water and were taken to some caves and rocks and given a description of what they were. Some caves were tiny and you really had to squeeze through the gaps, but it was worth it once you were inside. For someone who doesn’t really do much exercise, I didn’t find it too difficult rowing. My shoulder started to ache for a while but it soon disapeared (the ache, not my shoulder!). After a while we stopped at a beach which was only accessible by kayak. They had brought some snorkelling equipment with them so you could have a go at that if you wished. We stayed here about 30 minutes. We were then told where we would be going next. We were also told that it was likely we would have to be towed back by the boat as the wind had picked up to much for us to kayak back. We went on to look at some more rocks and caves and then set off back. We got back to the secluded beach and were told we would indeed be getting a tow back so would have to wait for the boat to come back from towing the first group. When we getting towed back, I didn’t realise just how far we’d kayaked! It must of taken about 10 minutes to be towed back and we got back right on the 3 hour mark so I don’t know what time we would have got back had we not been towed! I’m glad I did the kayaking, but would probably not do it again as I think 3 hours was a bit too long and also the route we took was full of other kayak tours and lots of boats so it was very busy. My boyfriend enjoyed it though and I’d probably recommend it to folk for the experience. Oh and I didn’t feel sick at all!!!
