Kayaking in Lagos

Kayaking is the use of a kayak for moving across water. It is distinguished from canoeing by the sitting position of the paddler and the number of blades on the paddle.

Kayaking is a cool, fun and relaxing outdoor activity to do in Lagos.

There are many people who explore kayaking as a sporting or leisure activity here in Lagos. And for me, i chose to explore this activity with the “Omidjire” Friends. The name is a combination of their surnames “Omi” and “Djire”

I met them on instagram, booked and totally had an amazing experience.

The venue was the Bics Garden and Boat Club at Lekki Phase 1, off Admiralty way.

I was geared up in a blue life jacket and given a brief safety talk, on how to paddle, how to get unto the kayak from the jetti, and so on.

I got into the kayak as instructed and we started to paddle.

Omi made really good company and overall i had a very good experience.

The low-to-the-water view is extremely relaxing, especially if it is not a sunny day.

You can do this solo or in company of friends. If you have serious phobia for water, i don’t think you should consider this.

Kayaking is also a cool workout activity to tone up your upper muscles.

Looking forward to my next Lagos adventure!
