“sand castle lessons”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

This is a awesome time for kids age 8 to 50! We learned how to mix the sand properly to make a castle stand for almost the whole week. Learned about different kinds of sand and methods to sculpt designs in them. I highly recommend this as a first activity when you get there then you can add to the one you make in class and also student can become teacher for the rest of your stay. Thanks Rick and Capri for a awesome class !

Your pictures are GREAT - look what you created - a near SandCastle City! You all pointed out something every important, "I highly recommend this as a first activity when you get there . . .". We try to encourage this same idea - in order that you can work on your sand sculpting skills during the rest of your stay. Who knows - you might be able to create a SandCastle City too. Thanks so much for the review B-)

“Great Family Reunion Activity”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2013

This was one of our first family reunion activities and was a great way to kick off the fun. Rick and Capri did a great job of explaining and showing how to build sand castles then they helped each family as we explored this new medium to show off our creativity. It was an excellent event for all ages and was enjoyed by everyone. Rick and Capri are professionals in their approach, they made the event fun and educational!

If I remember right this was a huge group, ending up with some 4 or 5 SandCastle groups, children to seniors - and everyone had a great time. One of the things we truly enjoy about SandCastle Lessons is the fact that after a bit of instruction and mentoring EVERYONE gains "SandCastle Success" - "then they helped each family as we explored this new medium to show off our creativity". What a creative review B-) Thanks You

“What a Great Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

I surprised the family with this and would recommend for all ages..We had everyone from my 14 yr old to my parents and we all had a great day.
Rick and Capri were fun to work with and we even incorporated our sandcastles into our wedding on the beach at sunset. We had a ton of people stopping to ask us questions and comment on what a great job we did. Thanks Again!!

Hey Dawn, thank you for the review. You sure had a fun filled day. We loved to use your SandCastle Lesson as an example of the fun things you can incorporate, such as your husbands gears and how you used the SandCastle as the backdrop to your vows renewal. We have run into a number of people who remember your especially fun day on the beach.

“Do NOT miss the chance to take a sandcastle lesson!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013

We love the 30-A area and have been going for years. Our sandcastle lesson with Beach Sand Sculptures is the best activity we have ever done in the area! Wear sunscreen, sunglasses and a hat - Rick and Capri bring everything else. The lesson was part art, part science, and all fun. I think the adults liked it as much as the kids did! We felt like celebrities after it was over and people gathered around to admire our work and ask questions. Truly a memory that will last a lifetime and an experience not to be missed.

Hey Lyn. Wow we should get you to write copy for our ads - but we don't need to know because you wrote such an awesome review on Tripadvisor!!! It was choked full of great points. Can we use "The lesson was part art, part science, and all fun" for our marketing? Thanks again

“Three generations of ABSOLUTE Fun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

This was the best quality time we spent together as a family in Destin!, I would recommend this activity to anyone -of any age. My parents, myself, and and two eleven year olds thoroughly enjoyed learning about how to build sandcastles. Rick and Capri were great and very knowledgable. They came to where we were staying and brought everything that we needed. This is definitely a MUST DO! Well worth the money.

Michelle, your review is everything a business owner loves to hear, such gracious and heart-felt words, Thank You. Your title, “Three generations of ABSOLUTE Fun!” is a very important point. There are many great activities in Destin, we agree with Michelle. When you come to Destin with 3 generations, SandCastle Lessons are something everyone will absolutely have fun doing - guaranteed!
