The Margaret River Surfing and Winery Tour is definitely not your standard Margaret River Wine Tour in a minivan or coach that follows a predictable route. At Surf N’ Dirt Tours we like to start the day with a Surfing Adventure in the morning before spending the afternoon enjoying the finest wines, gourmet produce and scenic locations that Margaret River has to offer.
Unlike the big bus tours, we pride ourselves on having a flexible schedule that can be tailored to suit your preferences. Your expert local guide Paul Berry will discuss the range of winery, scenic and gourmet food options available to you on the day. Paul calls it “fun, spur of the moment personalised touring!”
Margaret River is home to some of the most incredible beaches and surfing breaks in the world. The coastline between Cape Leeuwin and Cape Naturaliste is characterised by having amazing surf, crystal clear water, exquisite white sand beaches and unspoilt coastal scenery. The surfing beach that we will take you to is a local secret that often requires some fun four-wheel driving action to reach.
Paul is a nationally accredited level one Surf Coach who holds a Surf Rescue qualification and a Senior First Aid qualification. He is highly trained and is an experienced and competent surfer who has pushed his limits in different surf conditions all around the world. Your safety and enjoyment throughout the Margaret River Surfing Tour are his number one priority.
Paul will impart his ocean knowledge and teach you techniques and surf etiquette so that you are able to identify the safest location to enter the water, how to navigate your way through the waves and of course how to catch a broken wave, stand up and surf it to the beach. He will be beside you in the water the entire time, pushing you into waves, offering feedback, encouragement and a lot of high fives. If you are already an experienced and competent surfer then you can paddle your own board out the back and catch waves as the rest of the group cheers you on from the inside sandbar.
Relax and kick your feet up after the surfing session as a tasty sit-down picnic lunch is provided to you in a secluded location within a stunning forest setting. Relive the best waves ridden and laugh about the wipe-outs as you enjoy delicious food and great company.
After lunch we embark on a winery tour of Margaret River’s finest boutique wineries and local gourmet producers. Taste awarding winning wines from the region and sample chocolate and olive oil as we visit the local gourmet outlets. Learn about the history of the wine industry in the region as we customize the stops to suit the group’s preferences.
The cost of this tour is only $160 per person.
If you are the type of person who wants a fun, relaxed wine touring experience without the crowds then this is the tour for you. It not only offers you the chance to discover some of Margaret River’s best boutique vineyards and natural wonders but you will also interact with local wildlife and enjoy a memorable surfing adventure.
