Just returned from TCI and still enjoying the photos of our eco tour with Morgan through the Mangroves. Morgan was an amazing guide and teacher, who was able to teach our 12 yo daughter to SUP despite the windy trek across the channel. We loved seeing the wildlife, and learning from Morgan’s knowledgeable trove of info! The water was clear and amazing and we were basically in the mangroves by ourselves with the turtles. We had a great time. Highly recommend using Surfside and Morgan L, our guide.

We hired a babysitter from SURFside Ocean Academy. Her name is Athena and she is wonderful! She was very engaging and interactive with our 2 year old. Even on our way to the beach, during the car ride she taught him how to show numbers using his fingers and sing the ABC song! I was very impressed with her persistence and determination to teach him things. She was also great with taking him out to play and encouraging him to run for exercise. She was good at feeding him and getting him down for naps and bedtime. I highly recommend her as a babysitter.

We hired a babysitter for 4 young children (ages 18mos- 7yrs). The adults went out for dinner four nights and left the kiddos at the villa and they loved every minute with their babysitter, Sharnalee. She was punctual, reliable and so responsible. We loved having some adult time and knowing our children were in great hands!!!!

Surfside connected me with a stellar babysitter, Claire. My kids (6 & 2) were more than happy to be with Claire, she accompanied them around the resort so my daughter was able to be with her friends as much as she wanted (aka constantly). Claire was very proactive with seeing ways to be helpful and jumping in without requiring direction. She helped me throw a large birthday party for my daughter. It was also nice to know that Claire has a lot of water skills as regards teaching and guarding kids in the pool or ocean. Having a good babysitter makes a world of difference to a trip as I was able to relax and we also enjoyed some nights out with our adult friends. The 2 nights after our trip my daughter was sobbing at length about how she missed Claire and "all the fun times we had". As she said "it's hard to say goodbye to Turks and Caicos"
