Experience a taste of life along Nokoue Lake during this picturesque and informative cruise.
Depart the pier for the scenic, 45-minute drive to Calavi Harbour, then embark a motorized canoe for the brief cruise across Nokoue Lake en route to Ganvie. Along the way, you will see the local Tofinu people going about their daily chores aboard dugout canoes. Upon arrival in Ganvie, some time will be made available for a refreshing beverage and an opportunity to browse a local souvenir shop before embarking your canoe again for the cruise back to Calavi.
Upon returning to Calavi Harbour, you will rejoin your coach for the 1-hour return drive to the pier.
Please note: This tour involves minimal walking; however, guests must be able to embark and disembark a small, motorized canoe. Seating is on a wooden plank. No lifejackets are provided, as the lake is very shallow. While photo opportunities abound, locals will expect a tip. Guests are encouraged to wear comfortable, lightweight clothing, and bring sunscreen, a hat and sunglasses from the ship.
