TRAVEL FOR A PURPOSE

By joining us, you directly support the growth and empowerment of Cuba’s surf community.  We help our Cuban brothers and sisters clean the coastlines and learn how to surf (if conditions permit).  Plus, a portion of the trip cost goes towards the development of surf and marine conservation programs in Cuba.  

In nurturing a relationship with the ocean through these programs, Cuba’s youth are being gifted a tool for strengthening mental well-being, resiliency, and social and environmental stewardship.

FAQ

Travel to Cuba is different from most other places.  One of those differences is that the government determines whether we can visit certain facilities.  As such, plans can change from the original itinerary.  We will strive to keep as close to the itinerary as possible and ensure that any changes will be communicated.  Time also passes more slowly on the island and the nature of group travel means we may not be able to fit in every activity.  Please be flexible and willing to go with the flow with a smile!
