An all around awesome family experience. We had two families with 6 kids; and they listened, worked and laughed for two straight hours. Rick, our guide, was wonderful as he taught and guided us on how to make an awesome sand castle. It was the highlight of our trip! I highly recommend for anyone!

We had a great time building our castle and learning how to improve our building techniques. Our instructor Morgan did a great job walking us through the whole process from the foundation to the design work and pointing out the most important steps to remember. Fantastic experience for our whole family!!

Young and inexperienced employees, pretty cookie cutter. Would have liked more creativity, felt "canned lesson".

Hi Ken, Your time taken to give a 3 bubble review for your SandCastle Lesson with Beach Sand Sculptures is greatly appreciated. We are sorry to hear of your disappointment. Please contact us with your ideas on how your SandCastle Coaches could have better met the needs of your whole family during your SandCastle Lesson. This will allow us the possibility of correcting ideas we may not have considered. Your SandCastle Coaches have completed extensive training (12-16 hrs) to teach the Beach Sand Sculptures' SandCastle Lesson. You obviously learned your SandCastle Lesson was lead by a newly trained SandCastle Coach. What you may not have realized; your other SandCastle Coach (aside from the found/owner of the company) has taught more SandCastle Lessons than anyone in the world! Your comment, "pretty cookie cutter", is exactly what we have worked to create. Yes - A SandCastle Lesson with Beach Sand Sculptures is a process and is even scripted. The idea is to create a consistent service to which our guests have come to expect and appreciate. Though scripted, SandCastle Lessons are flexible enough to address the needs of individual groups and are enjoy year after year. Many families make SandCastle Lessons a annual family tradition! Thorough instruction uses a methodical approach to teaching by following an outline to assure completeness and consistency (ie. to avoid your family receiving less instruction than another family). "Would have liked more creativity . . ." . We offer the instruction (professional tips and techniques), the fun and interactive demonstration on how to build a 3 1/2 foot tall SandCastle, and provide the mentoring to implement these new skills. The creativity - we leave to our clients. Scan through the thousands of SandCastle Lesson pix on Facebook or on TripAdvisor in Destin, Florida. You will see space ships, toilets, churches, bananas, ballet slippers, critters of all sorts, artful and unique abstracts, the list is as endless as the human imagination. Obviously your expectations, developed from listening to your referral source about their wonderful family experience, were much higher than what our service offers. We have considered offering a more personalized service. This would, no doubt, increase SandCastle Coach training requirements in turn increasing the overall cost. However - what we have learned from the hundreds of reviews received every years; SandCastle Lessons are more about the "family experience" than about the new level of sandcastling skills a family acquires. SandCastle Lessons are a whole family experience. In our experience, when parents are fully engaged in the experience, "playing and creating" with their children everyone has more fun - Creating Memories in the Sand. Thank you again for your time and review. We would love to hear your ideas.

We had a great time learning how to build a seascape! Rick was so great at incorporating the children and adults. The kids wanted to stay and sculpt for hours. If you are looking for a great way to spend a day or week on the beach we highly recommend this.
