I took a flying boat from Marina and that was my first time of being on a flying boat in my life.
The ride cost ₦2,000 per trip and lasted for 15 minutes. It was the most thrilling ride I have ever had and I was a bit dizzy when we arrived at the beach.

Once i got into the beach, a guy (Lucky) walked up to me and demanded for settlement which cost N200, and then another guy named Paul took me round the whole beach.
