Average Product Rating: 4.5 / 5
It was good, with the exception (no one's fault, obviously) that the snorkel and kayak portions were cancelled due to weather. While we were offered the snorkel equipment to go out on our own, we would have appreciated more guidance about when/where, and a little bit more proactive effort to make sure we were satisfied, either with a rescheduled experience or a prompt refund. As it was, we had to spend a lot of time searching for the place to get the snorkel stuff and were left on our own thereafter, plus we never did get to kayak, and are left to our own devices to get refunded. Basic customer service. The actual surfing lesson we had was fun, and the guys out there with us were nice, encouraging, and were safety conscious.
Great instructors. Helpful staff. Kids had a great time.
