We stumbled upon this surf/adventure store. 2 mommies and 5 kids. No appointment and no idea what we wanted to do. The owner couple were too Devine!! They accommodated everyone's weird requests let us all have our different activities and were just so flexible and kind. Well done for the great customer service. Well maintained equipment. Can highly recommend them.

While I was in Durban visiting Ushaka Marine World, I booked a boat trip looking for dolphins and a surfing lesson for my 8 year old daughter from Ocean Ventures. I have always told her how awesome it is to surf and I was so impressed with the wonderful service from Lucinda of Ocean Ventures and the excellent way Billy, the instructor, handled her first lesson. He was very patient and made it a wonderful experience for her. She managed to surf three waves all the way to the beach and created one of her best holiday memories ever!

Unfortunately we did not see any dolphins on the boat trip, but we went quite deep into the ocean which was a great experience for everyone on the boat.
We will be back for sure !!!!!!!
