Who are Flying Fish?

Our story began in 1993 when two watersports Instructors set up a winter watersports training programme in Barbados for those who are looking to change in career. Fast forward to today, Flying Fish trains people who are looking for a career on a Superyacht, work in the sailing industry, watersports, or cruise ship.


Our ethos remains the same; to deliver professional training that leads to a professional qualification, providing you with adventure and employment opportunities worldwide.
