Incredible experience! We were lucky enough to see a lot of dolphins, we were able to observe two different species, one of which was swimming right next to the boat. Even the crossing to find dolphins is great, it goes fast! Our two guides were very nice and even spoke a little French. The company really respects animals. Departure is from Lagos train station which is very easy to find. Boat with 12 people and everyone has a view on one side, there is no one in the middle.

All around a fantastic experience that we can definitely recommend. Friendly check-in, friendly information at the counter, great boat (not too small, not too big), guide explained the process well, tracked down the dolphins with confidence and patiently informed them about the animals. A super nice family experience. #teenageapproved Thanks to the whole team.

I think we were extremely lucky we chose this activity. Being on the rib meant that we could quickly relocate to where the dolphins were. They move fast! There must have been around 50 dolphins and small groups of them were swimming in the bow wave created by our boat. It was a life memory! Only word of caution, the boat travels fast and bangs down on the water so if you have a bad back, sit at the back. We were at the front and it was fantastic.
