“Such a Blast!”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

This activity was such a blast! We had a group all ages 8 years old to age 76! We all had so much fun and learned so much about the right way to build a sandcastle. Rick and his wife Capri were wonderful. I highly recommend everyone book a class on your next beach trip. If you want a morning time slot, book early.

“It was the hit of my daughters beach wedding! Awesome!”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Would recomend Beach Sand Sculptures for any wedding. We also did a sand sculpting lesson with family a few days after the wedding. It was so much fun and we actually learned the correct way to make sand castles.

“Great Experience for the Whole Family”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

We were at the beach with 3 families, including 9 kids ranging in age from 5 - 13. I'm not sure who enjoyed it more, the kids or the adults. Rick and Capri are both great. Recommend that you schedule the lesson early in your trip so you can practice your new skills all week. Book early, they fill up and if you wait until the last minute, you'll miss out.

Hey Brent. Thank you for the 5 Star Review, your words mean a lot to us! You wrote, "I'm not sure who enjoyed it more, the kids or the adults." This is a very interesting phenomena; most people think that SandCastle Lessons are for children, but the truth be told, we typically have more adults in our lessons than children and the jury is still very much out on who has more fun.

“Great Fun for Families with Teens”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

We've been bringing our three sons to Destin for years and years, and just when they thought they were too big for sandcastles, we signed up for this sandcastle building lesson! It was one of our favorite beach experiences ever. Rick made sandsculpting fun and achievable, even for the non-artsy ones in our family. The guys are still talking about it and can't wait to show off their skills to their friends. I blogged about the experience here: http://irenelatham.blogspot.com/2013/03/how-to-build-sandcastle.html

Irene, we so appreciate your gracious review and blog post. The fact that you have been coming to Destin for years and years and you wrote, "It was one of our favorite beach experiences ever", is monumental to us. We hope to see you all on your return trips to Destin or at least send us some pix of what you all create B-) Thanks again.

“Excellent Family Experience”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

This was one of the most fun family experiences we have ever had. Rick was a great teacher and even got our 2 1/2 year old granddaughter involved in the castle building. It was a great family-team building time! The next day we were actually able to recreate the skills we learned from Rick and built a castle on our own. Of course we still need a lot of practice but now we have the basic skills to create an impressive looking castle! I highly recommend Rick and Beach Sand Sculptures! Well worth the money!!

Hi Sandra. Sometimes the littlest carvers really do have fun. You pointed out a major recurring theme about SandCastle Lessons, "This was one of the most fun family experiences we have ever had". We are so honored that SandCastle Lessons have this priceless extra benefit that continues to surprise and delight us. We are blessed to have played in the sand with your family and given you all "one of the most fun family experience you have ever had", Thank You!
