A mistake was made with the dates when booking my daughter in for camp (We booked her in for June instead of august) and only realised the day before we thought she was starting. The online booking system is not very good. I spoke with Nina and explained our daughter was really looking forward to it and was there anything that could be done and I was told that She could squeeze her in but we would have to pay in full again.
I find this to be absolutely disgusting that there is no understanding when an obvious mistake is made. My daughter was really upset to miss out but I refuse to give Nina any further business. It’s clear that money comes first over a child’s disappointment. And I’d also like to point out that no one bothered to ring us in June to inquire as to why my daughter didn’t show up. They just took the money no questions asked.
Would definitely not recommend.

We just completed our 2nd SUP lesson with Surfdock and again it was absolutely excellent. If you are in any way interested in finding out about paddle boarding this is the company to do it with - excellent facilities and excellent instructors.

We did our 1st lesson in Grand Canal and the 2nd one out in Dun Laoghaire harbour - both excellent and really good fun!

First visit to Surf Dock for our 10 year old’s Birthday party.
Arrived for 12:30
After getting wetsuits, helmets, and life vests on, the girls were split into three groups to partake in three different fun water activities each with a dedicated instructor.
Kayaking
Group Stand up paddle boarding around the whole dock on a giant board
Fun games and races around a circle of paddle boards tied together out in the dock.
All there seemed to have had a great time , helped by friendly instructors and the family that owns it.
The water activities finished around 3pm, a quick change and then pizza (arranged through SurfDock but at separate cost) eaten at provided picnic tables under a tent/gazebo.
Time was a little tight for food as collection we had given was 3:30pm , our fault not SurfDock.
Tip: bring flasks of warm drinks to warm up children after changing. They chill quickly out of the wetsuits.
Thoroughly recommended party venue. 3 hours of great fun.

I decided to go for the easiest option to get a fun day in the water. So instead of doing hours of bus, we stayed in Dublin city center and we had a fantastic time. The staff was very professional and friendly and the activities were grea: paddle, kayak, ringo ride, SUP. We had a rotation between them over the day and lots of game in each one.
Great experience !

I have visited this attraction twice, once on a company day out doing the wakeboarding, I snowboard so got the basics pretty quickly. I really enjoyed this activity and would highly recommend it. We then booked a birthday party for 17 children. The children had a great time and the staff did a great job of managing the party and giving the children a fantastic experience. I would highly recommend this company!

Thanks so much for a fantastic 10th birthday party for my daughter and her friend and their 17 classmates, they had "the best party ever". The guys in Surfdoc are extremely professional and excellent with the kids. It couldn't have gone any better. Highly recommend these guys. We will be back.

Had a fantastic taster session of Kayaking and SUP at the docklands festival yesterday. Great experience. A half an hour wasn't too short either, we'll definitely do it again. We had a blast. Nina was so friendly on the phone when we called a few times to check various things :)

Surfdock is a terrific facility. I did a two hour SUP intro lesson and was delighted with the experience. Having only done SUP randomly while on holidays in the past, it was really useful to get some proper instruction. I highly recommend Surfdock and the guys down there are really sound.
