My daughters and I had a fantastic first-time surf experience. Chance was very thoughtful and took to time to arrange the appropriate support we needed. Garrett and Will were wonderful instructors - friendly, enthusiastic, and very patient and encouraging. All smiles and laughter throughout!

The trip was excellent. Captain Josh's knowledge of the area is profound. We left on time, all safety precautions were explained and adhered to, and the wildlife we encountered was so amazing. We highly recommend a tour with this outfit to anyone.

Excellent and enjoyable. Captain Josh was very knowledgeable and passionate about the area. We had ample time to observe the wildlife (including a mother and very cute cub on the shoreline). Highly recommended

We had an amazing trip with Captain Josh. You can’t help but love the area even more when you see it through his eyes. He was very good with our inquisitive 10yo son. Fantastic way to enjoy the beauty and wildness of this area.
