  • We chose this company because strolling along the promenade we asked Monica, the business of the company, that we responded fantastically. We hired a day visit to the caves of lakes and two days after the sighting of dolphins. Despite the fact that there was a problem in the coordination (we had hired the journey an hour and it turned out to be full), so we had to wait for the next trip, the activity was wonderful, fun, and highly recommended for everyone who has not ever. The score is not maximum for the issue of the lack of coordination. Not upset us, but in other circumstances it would have done so.

  • Joe and Bruno are delightful guides! We had a super morning dolphin watching. As a family of five sometimes the cost of these outings can be offputting and the lovely Monica looked after us brilliantly in that regard. We saw lots of dolphins even though they were reported to be scarce that day - Joe and Bruno made sure we got to see them. We had a wonderful time. Highly recommend Algarve Water World and the Dizzy Dolphin Crew!
  • I chose simplicity and tried out all of their activities in Lagos. Nice and friendly crews. Skippers knew what they were doing and talking about. I am sure others will think differently... we all have our opinions. Next year I shall be doing the same with these guys. Wonderful trips! Highly recommended quite outfit!.

Where to stay in Lagos

The historical city core of Lagos is packed full of colorful buildings and bustling streets, some of which date as far back as the medieval period. Though the hotels in the central district are on the expensive side, you can put yourself right in the middle of the city's best restaurants, bars, and tourist attractions by reserving a room there. The center and outlying residential neighborhoods also boast plenty of more affordable options, including smaller hotels, guesthouses, and family-run inns that offer fewer amenities but put you in good position to get out and about on foot. As Lagos is a relatively small town, you'll be within walking distance of both of its premier stretches of beach from nearly any lodging. Those with a car or transportation can get even further afield to experience other nearby coastal areas.
