We had such a great time doing 3 lessons with Dewa that we came back for a 4th lesson!! He really helped us improve our surfing technique and corrected what we were doing wrong. We could not recommend more, will definitely be back again.

We did a snorkeling trip with these guys and the Captain went above and beyond what other guides did, he actually went in the water to make sure we got to swim with the Manta's and that we did. Glad he did not give up.

We did both surfing and snorkeling with Monkey and had a really good experience. Our snorkeling guide would not give up until we all had seen the manta. Surfing lesson great, kids were surfing after 30 minutes.
