Great experience with Valentine's Dive Center. We did our PADI open water certification. On-line classroom work at home. Pool work and open water dives down in Eleuthera with Valentine's. Worked much better and much more efficient than doing so back home with multiple trips to pool & classroom work.

Instructors were very professional and clearly enjoyed what they do. Had Neve for pool work and Neil for open water dives. Both were excellent. Both were thorough. They did not dwell unnecessarily on topics or skills that came more easily. They focused on skills or topics where we needed more work or reinforcement.

Dawn was very helpful in suggesting schedule options and changes as the weather unfolded to ensure that we had the best conditions for the dives. Boyd, Neil and Natto (sp?), were professional and very helpful on the boat and the dives.

I would heartily recommend Valentine's for diving and for folks like us who were pursuing PADI certification for the first time. While we were noobs, our friends were more experienced divers and they gave Valentine's a big thumbs up as well.

Thank you so much for the kind feedback. We (Boyd & I) are grateful for our dive team (Neil, Niamh, Nado). We can't control weather, but we can control how we communicate about it. Thanks for working with us when the wind was blowing, and we are very excited to have to more divers joining the diving community. Congrats on completing your open water certification! Looking forward to diving with you again soon.

Two nice dives on interesting sites. Very pleasant, friendly crew with Neil, Junior and Nado. Divemasters were great at the all-important and oft neglected skill that is threading the needle between safety and coddling. Emailed us great pictures from our dives. Highly recommend Valentine's Dive Center.

Fabulous half day snorkeling with Sea Turtles! Captain Nado kept the good vibes with island music and smooth driving. We were equipped with fins mask and our guide Neil located and spotted sea turtles, nurse sharks and starfish among the coral heads. Smooth operation from start to finish. Neil is also a very talented underwater photographer and shared his photos with us at the end of the day, documenting a very memorable trip with Valentines Dive and Boat outfitters. Thank you!

Really good experience; pricey compared to other places in the Caribbean, but considering the shorter length of their season and the heavy import taxes imposed on business, understandable. They make up for it with a well prepared set up; the Dive Instructor Neil McPhee was thorough, dedicated, and very professional, the boat was fully prepared for the customers ahead of time. Good quality equipment, and care was taken ahed of time to ensure everything fit. Solid briefings, and a clear safety driven culture and overall operation. I had four good dives with them. I’ll be back… recommended.

Valentines Dive Center is top notch. Had the opportunity to dive solo and with my wife later in my trip. The crew at Valentine was outstanding. Neil, Junior, and Niamh are so good at what they do. They do a great job at making sure you are comfortable. And the pics they send after the dive are icing on the cake. And what a better way to end it than a Bloody Mary at the resort!! Having only 11 dives, we are still relatively new to the diving world, but Valentines will be the one we compare all others to as we move forward. Thanks again to the incredible crew for welcoming us in to your Dive Center. Highly recommend to anyone in the dive world. Everything was handled so well. From the booking, to the refresher course, and the dive sites with a great crew.

The snorkeling excursion was fantastic. We were 12 on the dive boat, along with an experienced Captain and 2 dive instructors.
As we anchored we were met by two dolphins chasing fish and a turtle swimming beside the boat. The variety of fish in size, shape and colour were dazzling around the reefs. With great water visibility and a warming sun the underwater show was an experience to remember and one I highly recommend.

Thank you so much for the review. (We think) the same pod of dolphins visited our dive boat the next day. What a great way to see nature in its glory. Looking forward to your next visit to Harbour Island.

We did a dive with Neil off Harbour Island and it was incredible! Neil made us all feel super comfortable and safe, we saw great wildlife and explored ship wrecks. He also took some great pictures which are the perfect keepsake of a great dive. Highly recommend Valentines and Neil!!
