Island Ventures is amazing! I highly recommend them as an instructor and trip leader! They were very accommodating, knowledgeable, professional and fun! Rental equipment is very nice, lots of sizes available. Boats hold about 10 divers which is very nice!

From start to finish, a great experience. Michael had everything organized and running smoothly. George, our instructor, was patient, knowledgeable and fun. It was practically a private tour. No crowds, great location, good pricing.
