My husband and I took our 14 year old daughter to Harbour Island for the first time since she was a baby just this past week. We wanted our daughter to have a great first experience with a training session prior... More

The staff were excellent at every level- accommodating my schedule and organizing for the introductory scuba class during our stay on the island. The one on one class provided by Anita was tremendous and very thorough, followed by a wreck dive later that day. Great class, great dive, great teacher and all round great service. If you are on the... More

While I watch my daughters the staff on the boat stayed with my wife helped her very step of the way and we all had a great... More

Snorkeling with Valentine's is the way to go on Harbour Island! It's about a two-hour trip with two stops for snorkeling. The crew is fabulous - knowledgeable, great personalities, helpful, wonderful hosts! If you're a beginner, they'll have you snorkeling in no time at all. There were many kinds of fish, beautiful plant life and even a sea turtle and... More

By far the best dive operation I've ever dove with! The Gross family are all so wonderful, professional, upbeat, patient, and were excited about the experience just as much as we were. The founder George came on all our dives and snapped pics of everyone including what we discovered underwater (gorgeous spotted eagle rays and sharks so cool)! Definitely do... More

We brought three young children (4, 7, and 9) for a snorkeling trip on the last full day of a wonderful week stay in Harbour Island. The staff in the dive center kindly rescheduled our trip when our little one wasn't feeling well on the planned day, and the boat crew took great care of our family of five, which... More

As one of those people who dives once a year while on vacation from the New England winters, I always arrive at a new dive center with a high degree of self-doubt. Safety is and should always be the first concern of the diver and dive leaders. At Valentine's I met all the co-owners because they are right there in... More

Thankyou for your comments.They have much wisdom to offer in my opinion. Our ownership group and staff 'really' care and despite weather,waves or mix of divers we try our best. We listen,and are always welcoming constructive feedback. Over 35 years in business and 40 years plus diving the world has taught me what divers want. I wish I could deliver... More

The staff and management are friendly and helpful, the equipment is new and clean and the boats are comfortable. They gave us several choices for our days and the guides were very informative.

George, the owner and Captain, was friendly, instructional and a wonderful ambassador to the Snorkeling expedition. Great Fun! We highly recommend. He was very nice with the other family with young kids, as well as our teens. They took us to two different reefs and made an effort to help us find turtles and extraordinary fish. We felt safe and... More
