We had a great time with Surfside Academy and our kayak tour of the mangroves. We had a 4 year old and 9 year old along. Morgan answered our thousand questions and guided us to some beautiful areas where we saw cool and interesting marine life. We all enjoyed the information and the activity.

We engaged Surfside Academy for three nights of babysitting for our multi generational trip to Turks and Caicos. Two of the nights were perfect. Janice and Nordia were on time, professional and friendly. The older 2 children, ages 5 and 7, liked Janice and Nordia had the infants who slept, but we were very comfortable after meeting them to leave... More

We had a wonderful time with Surfside Ocean Academy. The equipment was great, the guiding superb and the scenery out of this world!!! Our guide explained the delicate eco system of the mangroves. We saw turtles, birds and all sorts of fish. We managed to see several species of sharks (the safe ones!) while they swam beneath our paddle boards.... More

Surfside provided a diverse, exciting and educational tour of TCI with SUP and snorkels. Morgan and her team shared their knowledge of the island and its marine life, making the experience even more memorable. There is so much to do on TCI and Surfside is the most-knowledgeable and best-equipped to guide you on your visit and exploration of this beautiful... More

I spent two full days of PADI certification training with Megan in Turks and Caicos and had a great experience. Megan is friendly, flexible, knowledgeable and made my intense training fun and memorable. Her boyfriend, Greg, who drove the boat was also very gracious. I definitely recommend Megan and Surfside to anyone looking for their PADI certification.

Morgan and her team took our group for a great kayaking trip through mangroves, across open water and finally to one of the most beautiful islands I have been on, that was an iguana sanctuary to boot. Along the way she imparted her knowledge and exposed the wonders of the environment around us. Morgan and her team were great! Would... More

We spent the morning on a family turtle tagging trip and it was one of the most wonderful experiences we have had on any holiday. Greg, who led us on the trip, was just fantastic - an oceanic crocodile Dundee ! We had the pleasure of finding a sea turtle, following Greg as he tried to catch one, seeing Greg... More

We arranged a half day private charter boat with Surfside for our family. It was an absolutely fantastic day! We climbed through pirate caves, snorkeled, jumped off a sea cliff, and went tubing. The guide (Greg) and owner (Morgan) were knowledgeable, kind, and went the extra mile to make our experience a great one. My husband, our five young kids,... More
