This is the best reason to get up before the sun in Lagos. Loved every minute of it. The sunrise was spectacular and there is no better way to see the stunning Algarve coastline. Thanks for the perfect end to my stay in Portugal.
We had an amazing night SUP tour on the reservoir with David - the stars came out and we sat down on our boards and watched shooting stars and even did some yoga on our boards! David connected to everyone of our family, gave great advice on SUP boards and technique and never hurried - it felt like we had the whole night (and the whole lake to ourselves). Thanks for this wonderful experience!
This was hands down the best experience we have had in Lagos!! My family and I aren’t early risers and we would do it again in a heartbeat. It’s completely worth the early alarm. We not only loved the scenery but David is the best!!! He came with all the paddle boards blown up and ready to go for us, all we had to do was put the very clean wet suits on and bring them down the stairs. You do not need to have experience paddle boarding at all in order to enjoy this. My family and I are all beginner paddle boarders and David made sure everyone was good the entire time and gave us a lot of information regarding Lagos. We didn’t have that great of a sunrise due to the clouds but it was still the best adventure and amazing views. David has tea and hot coffee for after the trip as well!! All around an amazing experience and you will not regret it!
Okay, if you want the best SUP experience, then don’t miss out on this one: it does not get any better. It will take you to a stunning sunrise across rocks and caves in the early morning. Because you are starting at 6AM you will be the first and only ones in the water which takes the experience to another level. All the other SUP tours will start much later which means the coast is scattered with boats and other SUP’s which will ruin your experience. Triple A rating for host David, a cheerful, friendly and adventurous guy who will help you get on the board in no time. Make sure to tune in to his stories about his travels, quite interesting!
Fabulous SUP experience with Dave Partridge of Nowhere2far. Dave is such a great instructor, tour guide and motivator all rolled into one. We had such fun on our SUP trips with him and really improved our technique at the same time. The places he took us were wonderful- from paddling the rivers to the oceans, the grotto tour to watch the sunrise and practicing our technique on the beautiful lake. All made more special by the delicious healthy lunches (and cake) made my Dave’s lovely wife Holly. An amazing precious experience and a really special way to feel so close to nature as we saw all sorts of fish and lovely birds on our river trips. Great experience made fantastic by Dave and Holly’s enthusiasm and dedication to making it the best it can be.
Amazing!! Don’t let the early morning aspect prevent you from doing this excursion. Watching the sun rise over the water and lighting up the beautiful coloring of the rocks is one of the most incredible sights you will see! You quickly forget what time you had to get up to do it, especially after David takes you into the stunning grottos and caves! Also, by going earlier you avoid the crazy midday busy tourist times, which is what I prefer while traveling. We had the whole ocean to ourselves!! David was nice, funny, informative, and has a calm demeanor that’s really helpful while out on the paddle boards! It was my mom’s first time ever paddle boarding and with David helping her she had the best time! Definitely make this part of your stay while in Lagos!!
David is such a great instructor and his passion for the Algarve and paddle boarding is infectious. It was so easy to organise the trip. He collected me from the hotel and we headed to the lake so I could work on my technique. As a beginner, this was the perfect setting. Calm waters with David’s encouraging words and useful tips. I immediately felt at ease and grew in confidence. His knowledge of the local area was an added bonus. Thanks David!
