Dennis was an awesome discovery for our Aruba trip! Super nice, and super knowledgable about a wide range of activities. We spent a couple days with him - surfing and snorkeling - and would definitely recommend him to anyone making a trip to Aruba!

We found Dennis as we wanted to do a private SUP lesson in the evening to watch the sunset. He was quick to respond and offer a great package for me and my husband. He picked us up from our AirBnB - friendly and accommodating. Dennis truly knows his stuff! Having paddle boarded only once before (and failing), my husband and I were eager to learn how to do it properly. Dennis's tips got us up and paddling around Palm Beach in no time. We had a great time getting to know Dennis & learning something new. Would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Aruba!

We had a wonderful experience paddleboarding with Dennis on August 21, 2020. He taught us the proper technique and had great equipment for our excursion. This was our first experience paddle boarding and Dennis did a great job ensuring we had a wonderful time! We enjoyed paddle boarding on the beautiful blue shore of Aruba! And we appreciated the added bonus of him taking and sharing pics with us. I would highly recommend this experience - even for people who often lack balance on land :).

Dennis is the man! He taught me to surf 8 years ago when I was in my 40’s. It changed my life! If you make it to Aruba you have to get with Dennis. 🤙🏽

We contacted Dennis because my husband and daughter wanted to go surfing. He told me we could book the day with him and hope there were waves, but if not we would figure out a different plan. When he picked us up he was extremely patient and drove around to find the best waves. He was great about teaching them what to do and he had all the right gear with him. They got into the ocean and both of them were able to get up right away and surf! It was an amazing day and I couldn’t recommend him enough! Best choice for how we could spend the day in Aruba! We will definitely be contacting him again if we get to Aruba.
