When we arrived they didn't have us on the list for a reserved Stand Up Paddle board even though arrangements had been made weeks in advance. They had two available; I don't know if they were their only ones, but both of them were in terrible shape. We took the one we thought best but it was terrible and we... More

I love personal dive operations like this. Valentine's is a dive shop run by a man who loves scuba diving and operates the business to do what he loves everyday and share the experience with others. The shop was professionally run, but not rigid. The dive briefings were safe and covered everything you'd want. Truly kind people who enjoy what... More

Top notch service. Co owner George was awesome. Took a bunch of pictures and made sure to send them out to us via email without even asking. I can't wait to dive with this shop again!

Last trip a few years ago, the water was rough at one site so we asked for calmer places and they delivered. We went to Man Island which had good places for coral and fish. Didn't see turtles but George, Anita and Ashlee made it a fun trip. They were in the water the whole time, taking pictures but also... More

Valentine's Dive Center is one of the best run scuba outfits I've ever used. We did 3 days of 2 tank diving with them and everything was top notch. The boat and dive briefings were thorough, their attention to safety was obvious, and the boat itself is roomy, comfortable, and well maintained. The staff, including dive masters Shane and Anita,...

Had a fabulous snorkeling experience on the Tigress with my husband and another couple. Although there were only four of us, there was a total of five crew members, two of whom were the owners of the company. Not only were they highly informative, but three of the five went snorkeling alongside us and snapped pictures of the whole experience... More

My wife and I brought our two daughters for a first family snorkeling trip ever. We have a five-year-old who is a little jittery in the water. The staff make sure our first site was in a calm area in shallow water and it was just perfect. The staff was wonderful and experienced and helped to point out some interesting... More

Went snorkelling with these guys and had an amazing experience! Not only did we see a wide variety of wildlife, but the guides were incredible hospitable! Had one guide snorkelling that we could follow, who I would highly recommend because he could spot a wide variety of stuff, but we were also free to explore on our own. Wish I... More
