Lagferry Becomes The Toast Of Waterways In The Country, As Foreign Visitors, Embassies And Tourists Relished Their Customer-centric Services, Also Gets Commendation On E-Fleet Surveillance System

The Lagos Ferry Services (LAGFERRY) in the last couple of months has enjoyed the opportunity of ferrying foreign visitors, embassies and tourists as they  experienced the Lagos Multi-modal Transport System and savour the vibrant ambiance of Lagos through the inland waterways of the State. 

LAGFERRY has become increasingly popular among Embassies/Consulates, Tourists and Foreign Visitors who want to experience Lagos from a different perspective. It offers a convenient, safe and efficient mode of transportation. 

Noteworthy to mention are the Indian Community in Lagos who hosted a social reception that was spiced up with indian vibes of live music band and electrifying dance while cruising on the MV ADIMU ORISA barge.

LAGFERRY also ferried officials from the Indian High Commission for a three days inspection visits to the Indian Naval WarShip INS SUMEDHA that arrived in Lagos on Friday - 13th October, 2023. 

The French Naval team were ferried from Five Cowries Terminal, Falomo-Ikoyi to NPA Finger Jetty at Apapa Quays and Officials from the Consulate General of Brazil (Brazilian Embassy) also sailed with LAGFERRY from  Falomo-Ikoyi to Standard Flour Mills (Obelawo) Jetty, Apapa to welcome, inspect and dine on the  Brazilian Naval WarShip LIBERAL FRIGATE F43 as part of the celebration to mark Year 2023 Brazilian National Day. 

Hundreds of British Military Personnel, Defense Chiefs, British Stakeholders, Royals and other Visitors were commuted over 90 trips spanning six days on return voyage between Falomo-Ikoyi to Apapa to board MS TRENT British Warship for consultation, expedition and dinner reception. 

The excellent and reliable services provided by LAGFERRY were duly recognized and formally acknowledged by the Deputy High Commissioner of the British Embassy in Lagos State. 

Most recently, a 50-Man delegation from Africa Association of Urban Mobility Authorities (AUMA) crowned their Year 2023 Conference by sailing with LAGFERRY from the agency's Operational Terminal at Mile 2, where they inspected the E-fleet Surveilance System and being Transportation Global Experts, they overwhelmingly commend the  technological innovation into water transportation as pioneered by Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu administration in Nigeria, nay the continent of Africa. 

The African Team arrived at the Mile 2 Ferry Terminal after completing a Train Ride on the Blue Line from Marina Station.

After the stopover to briefly understudy our ferry operations, they departed via the inland waterways from Mile 2 to CMS-Marina; where they joined the First Mile Last Mile Buses to Tafawa Balewa Square (TBS) Bus Terminal, from where they boarded the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) Bus to Ikeja Red Line Rail corridor. It was a sum of practical experiences of the functional, modern and integrated Multi-modal System of Public Transportation in Lagos State. 

Interestingly, all members of the delegates were armed with their Cowry  Cards, which they used to pay throughout all the modes of transportation they were served. 

LAGFERRY has always provided a unique way for people to explore the Lagos city and enjoy its beauty. Regular Visitors have been ferried on the Lagos Lagoon while enjoying the stunning views of the city skyline, waterfronts and famous landmarks like the Third Mainland Bridge, Banana Island, Lekki Corridor, Five Cowries Creek and the Lekki-Ikoyi Link Bridge amongst others. 

Embassies in Lagos have also expressed their interest in using LAGFERRY to transport their staff and visitors. This provides them with a safe and comfortable means of transportation while also showcasing the beauty of Lagos to their guests. 

Tourists are particularly excited about LAGFERRY because it allows them to explore different parts of the city while enjoying a relaxing journey on the waterways. They can visit popular tourist destinations such as Eko Atlantic City, Takwa Bay Beach, Ilashe Beach Resorts, Epe Fish Markets, Ibeju-Lekki La Campagne Tropicana Forest Resort, JARA Beach Resorts, Sanctuary Beach, Inagbe Resorts, Badagry Slave Routes & Museum and Ikorodu-Majidun Channels, all accessible through LAGFERRY's routes. 

The government of Babajide Sanwo- Olu, knowing fully well that with growing population of over 20million Lagosians, all modes of transportation need to be full harnessed and developed to meet the growing demands of a modern, resilient mega city: the government made steady investments and passionate commitments to improve water transportation in the state by providing modern and well-maintained vessels manned by competent and well trained seafarers. 

A total of fifteen Terminal and Jetties are being constructed and rehabilitated in the last four years of the administration; with more than eight completed, commissioned and handed over for commercial operations.

LAGFERRY on its part offers onboard entertainment,  comfortable seating, Internet Wi-Fi, making the journey more pleasurable for passengers, paying high premium to passenger safety and ensuring that safety measures, including passengers liability insurance are in place at all times, while providing a reliable and secure mode of transportation for both locals and foreign visitors. 

Overall, LAGFERRY is creating an opportunity for foreign visitors, embassies and tourists to experience the coastal ambiance of Lagos in a convenient way; providing an alternate mode of transportation but also allowing people to appreciate the beauty of the Lagos city from a different perspective.
