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!
