Janusz Walinski, Captain of MY Roma offers the following Testimonial……
“I can recommend highly Scuba Yacht Safety to any Yacht who wants to organize and improve their diving operations. What you learn with Brad Robertson will be exactly what you need to provide your guests with, taylor made diving service equal to your overall Superyacht standard.”

M/Y Vava

Superyacht Vava is a 47.30m motor yacht, custom built in 1996 by Feadship and previously developed a dive operations program and manual of operations with Yacht Scuba Safety when they found out that they were to conduct scientific research in Chagos Islands and Indian Ocean involving a very intensive dive program.

Captain Glen McDonnell MY Vava…
“Brad and Nick brought to my attention that they could formulate a specific customised safe operations manual for Vava under the title of the Yacht Scuba Safety program. Given that we have had limited diving activity in recent years but carry a full complement of dive gear I agreed to their proposal and am more than satisfied with the results. Both Nick and Brad visited Vava on a number of occasions to assess the platform, equipment and the relative experience of our dive team so that they could formulate a Vava-specific manual of operations plus identify any areas that needed to be addressed to ensure our visit to the Chagos and Indian Ocean would be completed with maximum awareness and safety. The result was a comprehensive manual of operations for the greater range of potential dive experiences we would encounter which was tailored for the limitations of the equipment we have on board plus the relative experience of the divers.”
