I will go back to Cocos and I would do it with you rather than as an independent. The product including support, instruction and even camaraderie of your team and other kiters means that you leave with another 10 friends. And that is valuable to a lot of time poor people like myself.
Brett Godfrey Ex CEO Virgin Australia/Tasmanian Walking Co. Cocos Islands
A fabulous and fun trip to Cocos shared with a truly awesome and wonderful bunch of people. A thank you to everyone for making it so special, and especially to Ben and the Zephyr team for making my 10th trip to Cocos (with Zephyr) so memorable and absolutely first class in so many ways.

It’s been absolutely wicked, great weather, great wind and super flat water.
The Magic Mile really is magic and the local people here are so nice. The tour so far could not be better.
Paul Richards Sunshine Coast / Business owner Torres Strait - Yorke Island '18
It’s amazing, the guys here are fantastic, the conditions are lovely, and the water couldn’t be flatter. The extra-curricular activities are also wicked (I love my new coconut leaf carry bag). I didn’t learn my lesson from last year and managed to sunburn my feet and then rub a layer of skin off which will need some management. Burst a kite too. And Will lost a board. So we’ve had plenty of opportunity to build character 😉. Absolutely can’t detract from how amazing the tour is. Loving it.

Thanks Zephyr for an unique experience on Masig with a stunning location, awesome peeps and an enchanting community. Seen so much progression throughout, ate lots of yummy and healthy seafood and learned so much from locals. 👏 Feeling so relaxed and earthy...

"Here's the math, 2 weeks of kiting with Zephyr on Cocos = about 1 year of kiting back home"!
"The tour was absolutely amazing and exceeded my expectations. There was never a dull moment and the kiting opportunities were world class. The crew never stopped caring for us and ensured the stay was awesome. The clinics and opportunities for non-kiting adventures were welcomed and well placed. Thanks. I'll definitely be back"!
Zephyr did it again! This tour was beyond our expectations as returned customers. Ben, Jen and the Team are passionate about the group having a great time and they go above and beyond to ensure everyone is well fed, learning new kite skills and never bored. They join in on the fun seems like a natural, highly customized and intimate great time. The Kiting in Cocos is one of a kind, the Kite safaris are unique, varied and great to practice new tricks or improve riding. The food was healthy and very savoury, Amy is an excellent chef on this tour. The new additions Levy and Johnny are a great complement to the teaching from Ben. Clearly, the Management Team is leading by example: passion, drive, fun, dedication, ambition, excellence are all present at Zephyr. Thank you for being a unique Kite Tour company.
My kiting holiday with Zephyr Tours for 11 days has been better than expected. The instructors experience and professionalism was outstanding. There was a huge variety of places to kite to and each day was a different adventure. Each kiting experience moved me out of my comfort zone to advance my abilities. There were plenty of instructors to get unlimited advice from at any time. It was an ideal location with delicious food served daily. I would definitely recommend this trip to others wanting to improve their kiting skills or learn for the first time or even just experience the stunning Cocos Islands.
"I really appreciate the extreme show of tolerance shown towards a slow learning 57yo. Really feel that I made progress, and when ever I thought of giving up there was always someone egging me on. Also appreciate the extra effort made due to the bad weather. Congrats on the great company and service"
Richard McKinnon Melbourne Cocos Islands
"I absolutely loved Cocos and the Zephyr experience. Best holiday ever.
The kiting conditions are the most beginner friendly I've ever seen, I've made lots of progress and lost my build up of kite-anxiety after getting hurt last year. The team was all around awesome, I got some great tips and lessons from every single one of them, but especially Monica was amazing with us less experienced riders.
The non-kiting adventures were equally great, from Scroungers Golf, snorkeling the amazing rip at direction island to the Barefoot Ball on our last night as the prefect ending to the trip.
I loved the Cocos cottages for accommodation, and sharing with Anita and Som was perfect matchmaking on your part. I'm sure I gained some friends for life there.
The food was great, good work by the team to create tasty breakfasts and lunches with the limited supplies available on the island"
Sandra Pfeifenberger Perth Cocos Islands
“Zero to Hero – Couldn’t stay upwind, had 3 days on Cocos with our coaches, day 4; kited 15kms across the lagoon to Home Island and day 5; jumps, back rolls and down loop transitions”!
Mark Dickason Sunshine Coast Cocos Islands
“The trip was everything I could have hoped for and then more! I really appreciate the thought you all put into the week and its activities, tailoring it to our group and each of our levels, the attention to detail and clear commitment to safety focus, as well as all being a bunch of great people to be around. It was absolutely brilliant, see you next year”!
Jim McClusky Melbourne Cocos Islands
“Thanks for a great kiting holiday! We loved our time with you on the Cocos and you looked after us incredibly well. To have a week of kiting in flat warm shallow water from tropical white sand beaches was absolutely heaven. Thanks also for all the instruction, catering and outings across the lagoon which made the trip so much fun. See you next year”!
Peter & Sophie Moore (Father & Daughter) Melbourne Cocos Islands
“The best trip so far. The new set up is great. Ben, Chris and the girls are terrific with constant coaching and demos. The mix of people in the tour was excellent with learners and intermediate riders. There is a lot more bonding now that we have all meals with the group so you really get to know all about the various individuals and starts long term friendships”.
David & Sally Law (Father & Daughter) Melbourne Cocos Islands
“[The] crew and the islands were fantastic , I can honestly say the best days kiting I have experienced have been on cocos” ... “All the staff were well organised and friendly , the tuition provided was particularly good"... ”"The food prepared by Zephyr was all good , the other food on the island was average"...
Gwil Melbourne Cocos Islands
“I have no words to describe the Zephyr Kite Tour but incredible and beyond my expectations!” ….. “The team was super… they spoiled us with great cookies, caramel slices and off course healthy choices. [We] benefited tremendously from the coaching, we have definitely progressed and feel much more confident in our kiting”
Mark & Caroline Texas Cocos Islands
“Hands down, the best holiday I have ever had. All the instructors and support crew were fantastic” ….. “It was so nice to go on a trip where everything is so well organised”.
Som Ling Alice Springs Cocos Islands
“We had an amazing time with good food, quality accommodation and even great fellow tour members! Not only did we improve our kiting a lot but we also had the unexpected bonus of learning and practising safety man oeuvres which takes our confidence really to a next level”.
“… your tour standard has both impressed us but at the same time created trust in the quality of product you offer and we would like join you again on future tours”.
