Experienced Male OWSI for Caribbean opportunity

Website Sea Saba

Sea Saba recognizes that choosing the right dive operation can make the difference between a good dive trip and an extraordinary diving experience. Our slogan "Dive the Sea Saba Difference" is multi-faceted.

Are you an experienced male OWSI (or higher), who loves diving, but also has a boating background and don’t mind hard work?  If you’re the right guy it means you possess excellent people skills, are energetic and have a great attitude as well as 500+ dives and 100+ certs.  What do we mean by hard work?  We lift our own tanks and crew our own boats for starters.  We also require all of our instructors to be fantastic dive guides with internal programs to assess your skill level.  The right applicant should also be eager to learn more about the “behind the scenes” aspects of a dive center. This position is an excellent opportunity to learn as we are a smaller, busy dive center that does its own repairs, maintenance, fabrication, marketing and more.

Sea Saba is considered the premier dive operator in the northeastern Caribbean: www.seasaba.com. 2014 marks our 30th year with a solid reputation for professionalism, outstanding service and dedication to the environment. The island of Saba is known for its environmental protection both topside and below—great diving; beautiful island.
