A truly magical SUP tour watching the Sunrise while paddleboarding along Lagos grottoes and caves

Q: Is this tour available all year round? R: Yes! Our Summer is from May till October and high season is July - August, this is the warmest period, great for SUP. In Autumn and Winter the caves and coast are as beautiful, and you'll have it all to yourselves. Temperatures are mild, water between 18-15ºC and plenty of sunshine. Lagos is a sheltered bay with calm water and mornings have no wind - perfect conditions all year round!

Description​:

Nature and SUP lovers this tour is for you! The most magical time to go paddleboarding is at sunrise. Beat the crowds and paddle in one of the most famous coastlines in the world: Ponta da Piedade in Lagos is full of grottoes, caves, natural arches, hidden golden beaches and impressive rock formations.

Praia da Dona Ana in Lagos is where we'll meet and after getting equipped with wetsuit, life-vest, paddle and SUP board, we'll make a brief SUP lesson on the sand, so that you can fully enjoy this activity in safety on the water.

Then it's time to paddle away from the shore admiring the sun rising and the colorful show it provides. Lagos' "Costa D'Oiro" (or Golden Coast) will be shining with the morning sun light making for breathtaking views of the cliffs and rock formations. The caves and grottoes will be beautiful and quiet too! So that you can paddle and relax at your own pace, without the stress and hassle of the boats later on the day.

A number of sea birds will make us company, as well as lots of small fish will be swimming around, you will also see in the distance the typical fishing boats coming back to Lagos from a nights working in the sea. And if you're feeling adventurous we can make 1 or 2 cliff jumps! Or just have a swim in, nothing beats getting in the sea right in the morning to start a good day.

You'll be finishing the tour when everyone else is just waking up! Meaning you still have a full day ahead to enjoy, having already done something great!

 

Oh, did we mention that pictures and videos are included? Yes, our guides will do that for you and you'll receive them by email afterwards!
