I booked a half-day sail on an Élan Impression 384 for my husband's birthday (along with my 7 year-old son) while we were in Lagos. Pedro was easy to contact and answered all of our questions promptly and clearly. The office was easy to locate in the marina, and we were headed out for our sail in no time with... More

We chartered a boat for half a day and brought our kids who are 5,8 and 10. We had a fantastic time and couldn't recommend the experience highly enough. The crew were fantastic and made the kids feel right at home. They even managed to convince my 5 year old to swim in the sea and he's very proud of... More

Chartered an Elan Impression 384, and a Beneteau Oceanis 34 last summer. Good boats which are well maintained Nice people to deal with and everyone was very helpful. We have also done single day charter this year and can certainly recommend this company.

We went to southwest charters in March 2016 it was my second time. As an rya powerboat instructor I really enjoy being on the water and be able to do our own things and this is exactly what you get. Pedro and the team are excellent at what they do and are on hand to give as much or as... More

Myself and 4 friends had an amazing experience with Southwest Charters during our RYA Day Skipper Certification week. We went there in October for a full week. The whole team is very friendly and was always willing to help us with our queries be it before, during or after the week. The instructor was simply the best; we've learned a... More

A wonderful morning's sailing with a truly attentive and welcoming crew, a very clean yacht with refreshments provided our party consisted of teens to grandparents who all didn't want the morning to end. This experience gave a true taste of what sailing up the coast of Lagos.is like. I would recommend Southwest Charters without hesitation for your premier day out,... More

We decided to splurge a little and chartered a yacht for our family of five for a whole day. I say splurge but it was reasonably priced for the service we received. From initial booking to arranging catering, Pedro couldn't have been more helpful. The Lagos marina is easy to find with easy, ample parking, the yacht was beautiful, clean... More
