This review is from a dive trip a while back (I just opened a Tripadvisor acct). I was on my own for this trip as my wife was not feeling well. What I paid for was supposedly a shark dive where they bring food to attract the sharks. On the way to the dive site, the owner (Fred) was pontificating... More

My wife and I had visited Grand Bahama several times and fell in love with a condo we found in Coral Beach. As SCUBA divers, however, we were sorely disappointed in the diving we found around the island. Because we try to avoid big dive ops, we steered clear of UNEXO, and instead, we tried a couple of the smaller... More

Fred and Melissa offer a great family alternative experience to the "big names" and full boat alternatives. Don't be fooled by Fred's low key style, he is all professional and he really cares about the diving environment. Softly didactic, Fred provided instruction for my grandson's open water, while Melinda gave him hands on help during his first deep dive on... More

I've been meaning to write this review for some time now. I have tried diving several times without success. My fear of water and the unknown has not allowed me to fully experience diving. I went to a Sunday class with a friend to see if we would feel comfortable with this dive shop. We both did and then went... More

We dove here 3 years ago and now me and my son came back. Fred and Melinda have been great. Their boat was down and they got us on other boats everyday we wanted to dive. They provided equipment and rides to other boats. Thanks again Fred and Melinda for a wonderful time!!!!!!

My wife and I like to dive but the other three in our group only snorkle. GBS was able to accommodate the group on the same trip. And, as a plus, it was just us 5 while we saw massive groups on other boats. While they were a bit late picking us up, they more than made up for it... More

My husband just recently became scuba certified with grand Bahamas scuba. The owners Fred and Melinda are extremely knowledgable and super nice! They take the time to educate you properly! We would recommend this dive shop to anyone looking to dive in the Bahamas. Very impressed! Melinda also takes amazing underwater photos and offers a course for underwater photography. We... More

Fred, Melinda, Tay, Dom, and Celeah are the owners/crew at my favorite dive shop in all the Caribbean. They treat you like true divers, and allow you to dive at your own comfort and experience level. They are always there to help when you need it and to point out things you see down below. Their knowledge of the sites,... More

My fiance and I really enjoyed diving with them. They had all the gear needed for the trip, were polite and friendly, gave great advice and knowledge about the area. The boat ride out was short and smooth and the sites were close to each other. Melinda was an excellent tour guide and even took pictures of us and posted... More
