All the best to the Scuba Team at Valentines.Shane,George,and Neil were great diving coaches and planned one of the most amazing dives ever experienced.
It was windy and overcast day so we could not travel to the ocean side or go very deep due to rough seas.Many divers would have stayed home but this team lead us to a couple of dolphins who swam with us for over 30 minutes,and later returned with another couple (total 4) to say good-bye.The pictures taken capture the excitement and experience that will last a lifetime.Many thanks for the dive of a lifetime!
Thankyou George and Neil for the wonderful pictures.

Recent Tripadvisor Review:
"5 grandchildren and 2 adult Special Olympics athletes certified by this first class dive center!
This is a long overdue review of this dive center co-owned by the Gross family, and staffed with amazing dive masters and the best boat crew.
Beginning is 2012-2015, Dive Masters Anita and Shane (they are the best!) certified our 5 grandchildren (ages 11 - 16). We completely trusted these instructors as my husband and I had already experienced their professionalism and their concern for everyone's safety and enjoyment in previous visits.
Again, because of our trust in the Gross family operation, we decided to approach them about certifying our daughter and son-in-law, both Special Olympics athletes. After communicating by email with Francine (Mrs. Gross) with their special needs and clearing them medically, they agreed to schedule the instruction during our stay on Harbour Island. I do want to point out that my husband and I wholeheartedly agreed and understood that we would stand by the decision of the instructors to certify or not certify, as is the case with anyone who is going through this course. Shane and Anita were again the instructors, and we were so impressed, as usual, with their patience and ability to teach and adapt to our daughter and son-in-law. And now they are so proud to say they are certified divers! And can't wait to come back next year!
to the boat crew, who were always professional and always helpful with equipment; to Neil, one of the new dive instructors, who guided me, my husband and 2 of our grandchildren who were with us on this trip; to George Gross, co-owner, photographer extraordinaire, who when you see him on the boat you know you willl get some awesome pictures at the end of the day; to Francine Gross, co-owner, for always being helpful before we even arrive on the island and communicating promptly with our requests; to the office staff, for their help whenever one walks through the door of the dive center.
People, this is a very professionally run dive operation!
