    My husband and I just got back from Punta Cana for our Anniversary trip. We weren't sure if we should go on any excursions but my husband wanted to try surfing... I'm sceptical of the water and was nerverous to try as I'm not the best swimmer and don't like "waves." We arrived

    My husband and I just booked this excursion while on our honeymoon. We had so much fun and all the staff was sooo nice. We were worried because we aren’t the best of swimmers and we had never surfed before. The water is shallow enough and you have an instructor out there helping

    The lessons were excellent and our children (teenagers enjoyed themselves a lot) and excellent teachers! Would normally have given 5 * However, We booked the surfing lessons via Tripadvisor - do NOT do it. Despite confirmation we were waiting to be informed about pick up time.

    Thank you for your comments! We are always open to our clients' suggestions and we have taken notes in order to review the communication process with Trip Advisor and we have contacted their Customer Service to make sure that all our contact information available to you is accurate. We did notice that on certain products on Trip Advisor, the price for companions is not published, and this has been corrected! We thank you for bringing this up to our attention. In regards to minors, we do not take any chances. They may be able to fly by themselves, but we run the operation of an extreme sport, on a public beach and in the ocean. This is not the controlled environment of an airport. As a mother of two, I personally ensure that our policy of an adult ALWAYS accompanying minors is enforced. This is non-negotiable, as nothing is more important to us than safety, and most specially that of minors (teenagers or not). We are happy to know that your children enjoyed the experience nevertheless, and we hope that they keep on surfing!! Saskya.
