Sea kayaking tours generally last about 3 hours and head south from Lagos town around the spectacular promontory at Ponta da Piedade, where participants can marvel close-up at the picturesque limestone and sandstone cliffs, islets, grottos, caves and coves.

Tours also take in the beautiful Praia do Camilo (Camilo Beach) usually on the way to Ponta da Piedade.

After a rest on shore, the tour companies will tow you back by motor boat which is with you to insure safety.

Kayak tour packages generally are limited to about 15 people, include a guide, insurance, a life-jacket, water-proof bag and often snokelling equipment. It is usually cheaper to book the tours down on the sea front in Lagos rather than up in town with travel agents.
