Starting Nov 1,2016 our professional Instructor can teach or take you on an adventure tour on our paddleboards .
We are 3 days into a week long study put on by various Bahamian and International organisations looking at coral reef health and fish abundance around Harbour Island and North Eleuthera.So far the team of scientists(including Shane Gross as dive leader)have visited 8 of our dive sites and collected valuable data that will be used in conjunction with surveys from around the Bahamas to determine the best possible places for the expanding network of MPA's(Marine Protected Areas)
An MPA around N. Eleuthera would expand and protect the amount of healthy corals and fish population and,therefore,be beneficial to divers,fishermen and the community as a whole.
Valentines Dive Center is hosting this study that will help the Bahamas for generations to come.
Many thanks to my crew for their efforts this week....George Gross,co-owner
