SandCastle Lessons - Create Memories in the Sand. A two-hour award winning Sandcastle Lesson is a unique quality time experience for the whole family. Our Mobile Units will meet you at your beach (Destin/Miramar) (Fort Walton Beach) (South Walton/Seaside/Santa Rosa Beach/30A) (Panama City Beach). Everyone will enjoy building their own (approx.) 3 1/2 Foot tall tower, sometimes the adults have more fun than the children! We will give you "SandCastle Success" while you create a bit of "SandCastle Envy" on the beach in Destin. It's not just a SandCastle Lesson, It will become a vacation memory to last a lifetime. As a Professional Sand Sculpting Company we also offer marriage proposals, elegantly unique wedding sand sculptures, Corporate Team Building, Corporate Promotions and advertising, Festival and Event Sand Sculptures from table-top pieces to multi-ton projects, on and off the beach.

Doug did a great job, and was easy to talk to. He showed us a couple easy tricks to make big sand castles. I would recommend this to all families.

The 2 hour lesson flew by. We were a bit hit with all the other people on the beach. Only disappointment was that we had a couple of sand tower problems because of the grainy sand. We thought the employees should have known we needed to move farther inland for better sand. We had 2 parents and 2 kids ages... More

So much fun! Desiree and Jade taught us (my husband and two teenage daughters) how to make the most amazing sandcastles. After the left, so many people complimented our castle. I bought a starter kit so we can do this again and again on our next beach adventures. Don't let the price scare you off...it is worth it!

What a fun filled family activity! It was my husband, two sons (8 & 6) and myself. We took the lesson last Tuesday which worked out great because we had the rest of the week to use the skills we learned. I was hesitant on purchasing the kit but so glad we did as we used it several times during... More

Family with 2 teens and 2 twenty something had a great time. Money well spent for lessons and kit. Upbeat staff was a lot of fun. We learned much and had fun utilizing our knowledge throughout the week. Definitely recommend for families with toddlers to teens. Worth the money.

I was a little hesitant to try this due to the cost, but went for it after reading the reviews. This was a wonderful experience and definitely money well spent! Dan met us (my husband and I and our children ages 13, 10, and 8) on the beach and was phenomenal! He was very creative and helpful! Also glad we... More

Brandi was wonderful with everyone in our group from my 73 year old father in law to my 7 year old cousin. Everyone had an amazing time. We were laughing bunches. And the castle turned out beautiful. All of my family members have been thanking me for booking such a fun and unique vacation activity.

We had a Christian leadership retreat in Blue Mountain Beach and booked sandcastle lessons as a team building exercise. We had an amazing time! Our coaches were informative and fun! After our lesson we were able to relate what we learned to ministry: You need a firm foundation, plenty of water to build (Christ the Living Water), and when things... More
