Hans Roelofs - Latchi Watersports Centre, Cyprus


After founding the company in 1978 with just a couple of small boats and canoes, I decided to take a back seat in 2010. I couldn’t quite cut all ties, so you’ll still find me at the centre doing briefings and boat trips. I’m also one of the commercial captains. I’m very proud of the professional organisation that Latchi Watersports has grown into.

PADI IDC Staff Instructor

I used to work on the cruise ships and was asked if I wanted to complete my Open Water diving course in St. Croix. From my first dive with Eagle rays and Nursing sharks, it was just……wow. I decided I wanted to become an instructor and have never looked back! I’m now a PADI IDC Staff Instructor and a sailing instructor.


I served in the British Army for 26 years and have followed my passion for underwater swimming all round the world. After spending years coming to Latchi on holiday to dive with the LWC team, I decided to skip the rat race and make the move permanently to live the dream! I apply my multiple talents all over the company assisting the Mechanics when needed and being a boat Captain.

Divemaster Intern

I’m a fun and friendly individual who is always up for hard work and good times. I have a passion for the water, I’m very enthusiastic for starting my Diving Internship with Latchi Watersports and a summer filled with gaining new skills and meeting new people.

Founded in 1978, Latchi Watersports started life as a small operation with a couple of windsurfers and a small speedboat, but over the years it has grown to become the largest and one of the best Watersports and dive centres in Cyprus.

Latchi is located on the Akamas Peninsular on the north-west coast of Cyprus. It’s just a short boat ride away from the Akamas National Park and its stunning coastline, which is the best in Cyprus. Our main centre of operation is located in the picturesque fishing harbour in Latchi, with two further beachfront operations located at La Plage and Anassa Beach.

We have a great team of professionals here at Latchi Watersports. Throughout the season the team is at least 20 people, increasing to almost 30 during July and August.

Our fleet of 30+ Rental Powerboats, Sailing and Motor Yachts and our PADI 5 Star Instructor Development Centre is located in Latchi, while our beachfront operations are more watersports orientated with three ski boats operating between the two sites and a whole spectrum of activities available ranging from ski boats to jet ski hire to banana & tube rides.

Our main emphasis is on safety and our highly trained and professional Latchi Watersports team will look after your every need to ensure your time on the water with us is the highlight of your holiday.
