My Daughter-in-Law hired Beach Sand Sculptures for a four hour session for our two Grand Son's, ages 2 year's old and 6 year's old. Grandpa was invited to help out, (which to say, might not have been the best idea), but to everyone's surprise, we were able to complete a very large intricate castle. The Dan was truly a very...

We had a group of 8- 4 kids and 4?adults. Half of the group was super excited half didn't want to do it. Everyone of us had a super fun time! Dan and Desirae were great teachers and really fun to hang with for a couple of hours. We loved the experience and would recommend to everyone. Thanks for a... More

Dan and Desirea were amazing. This was a rare instance of getting way more than what I paid for! We had 10 kids between 6 and 14 and every one of them was entertained and have said the sandcastle build was the best memory of our entire vacation. I call building a REAL sandcastle a life skill and now my... More

My wife and I booked a lesson on my birthday (55th). John showed up early on the beach in front of our condo and found a great spot with the best building sand before we arrived. He did a great job of explaining the important aspects of building in the sand, and provided tons of information throughout the lesson...not just... More

Desirae was awesome today at our 2 hour lesson, very pleasant and funny! I always wanted to know how to build a "real" sandcastle and she gave us the necessary skills to do so. It was one of the best times I have had at the beach in years. I would highly recommend doing this for couple, children, or groups.... More
