Great time had by my 10 & 6 year olds on the Snorkel Junky. Lydia leads a trip that is both educational and exciting. Three different sites provide variety. Safety was also very important. Both kids keen to go back next holidays!

I highly recommend Lydia and Kirst to anyone who's looking to learn to surf or improve their surfing- their knowledge of the sport, patience & encouragement really makes all the difference. Awesome job ladies, i loved the progressive surf lesson and learnt a lot.

Over the 6 weeks of surfing regularly over the summer with Lydia, my 10 year old son gained in confidence, experience, and important knowledge of the ocean...and he had a fun time too! Thanks Saltwater Eco, I highly recommend these guys to anyone :)

We had a particularly difficult group of beginners and the instructors handled it flawlessly with enthusiasm and patience. The group went from apprehensive to wildly impressed by the end! Thank you so much for a memorable time.
