24 Hours in Lagos

24HoursLagos

If you’re not a resident in a city where Transocean has operations, you’re probably passing through on a crew change, headed to a meeting or participating in a training session. Whatever you’re doing, you probably don’t have a lot of spare time. In this section we’ll share some of the highlights of a particular city or region that you can experience even if the clock is ticking.

Fishing

7 AM: Fishing
During fishing season between November and March, there are quite a few fishing tournaments in the area with weigh-ins at the Apapa Boat Club in Lagos. Opportunities to catch marlin (Dan Munoz has caught a 300-pounder!), tuna, and mahi mahi are available in the deeper waters of the gulf, while some very large barracuda can be caught in the shallower waters of the canals.

Beach

11 AM: Hit the Beach!
Like most Transocean locations, Lagos is located close to the ocean, with many beaches to enjoy the beautiful Gulf of Guinea. Some of the beaches, like the one where Transocean keeps a small hut for residents and visitors to enjoy on weekends, are flanked by canals and can only be accessed by boats or canoes – making the trip there an adventure in itself.

Golf

2 PM: Fore! Golf at the Ikoyi Club
Perhaps Nigeria’s most famous golf club, Ikoyi is where pro-golfer Vijay Singh’s competitive career really took off – and is a calm oasis in the middle of a bustling Lagos.

Sushi

8 PM: Bonsai Restaurant
You can get a boatload of sushi (literally, the sushi comes to the table on a big wooden boat) at this Victoria Island restaurant, which features Japanese cuisine. A popular spot for dinner, Bonsai is a local favorite for fine dining.

It probably goes without saying, but any recreational activities in Nigeria need to be cleared by the company’s security team if you’re there on company business. Do not attempt to move around Nigeria on your own.
