Harbour Island is known for its pink sandy beach, driving around in golf carts, free roaming wild roosters and as a travel destination for the rich and famous.

Valentines Dive Center is located on the west side of island, protected from predominant eastward winds therefore regularly flat and calm.  SUP Lessons will take you north to a bay front filled with old Victorian homes (some historical homes dating back to late 1700's), painted in rainbows of pastel colours.  Paddling south will take you between two luxurious resorts and marinas visited by many mega-yachts and top sport-fishing yachts towards a private community known for its dedication to preserving the island's natural tropical beauty.

Satisfied customers have described the activity as "highly recommended" and "will do it again" owing to the fun and professional instructor, knowledgeable guide and brand new equipment.

With Dawn’s passion for watersports and her knowledge of local waters, Stand Up Paddling with Valentines Dive Center is a "must do" when visiting Harbor Island.
