… I first started at Latchi Watersports in 2019
I wasn’t quite sure what to expect as, although I had experience driving boats and sailing, it was my first job in the watersports industry. I was immediately welcomed into the Latchi family and shown the ropes of the company.

During the past two years working at Latchi Watersports, numerous things stand out to me that make Latchi Watersports what it is.
Here, we have wonderful customers who visit from all over the world. We have customers that have never stepped foot on a boat before and others that own their own fleet of vessels. We have customers out with their whole extended families and those that are out for a romantic trip for two. One of the perks of working here is chatting with all our customers before they head off; then hearing their remarkable stories when they return. It really makes the job fun and interesting, getting to know different groups of people every day and hearing what a good time they have with us here.
The Latchi Watersports Team
The majority of our team have worked at Latchi Watersports for more than 2 years and are incredibly knowledgeable about everything watersports related! We also have several interns and those who are in the early years of their watersports careers. Working here, you meet people from all walks of life, and although we may be quite different, we all have similar hobbies and interests. After every working day, we all have a beer and chew the fat.
It’s busy. I mean really busy.
No matter how hectic and busy it gets during our peak season at Latchi Watersports, things do work like clockwork. We have the office taking bookings and welcoming customers. Customers are greeted by our staff who bring them to their boat and map briefings. Divers are preparing equipment. The watersports team are heading to the beach. And the safety boat crew getting ready for a day out on the water. Although a hundred things are going on at once, everything works like a well-oiled machine, which makes it really rewarding.
I remember being surprised at first by how many regular customers we have. This, to me, was a clear indication of what exciting experiences we offer. Whether boat rental, playing with watersports, diving the underwater world or chartering one of our luxury yachts. Many customers enjoy it so much the first time they visit that they come back every year if not every month!
And finally those hard-earned Skills
Ultimately working here, I have discovered more than I could ever have imagined. My skill set has widened, as I have been able to gain experience in most if not all aspects of the company. Not only have I attained more skills, but I have also met amazing people and worked in the most beautiful area in Cyprus!
