  • PADI courses in the Mediterranean

    By Lizzie Irving • 15 months ago
    The bluewater training team is delighted to announce that we are now able to offer 3 levels of PADI courses in partnership with Diamond Diving. Courses will begin in March 2014 and will take place at Diamond Diving's PADI 5* IDC resort in Golfe Juan. Watersports are a fundamental part of guest enjoyment onboard luxury yachts and although we currently offer Jet Ski Certification (PWC & PWCI), we do see the need to offer additional recreational training in order to remain industry leaders in yacht crew training. With the help of experienced partners, such as Diamond Diving, hopefully 2014 will allow us to do exactly that!
