Our Team

George (founder) likes to be called “The Old Sea Dog”. Born into a family of fishermen, George grew up in Latchi and loves fishing along the Akamas Peninsula. He has always adored the sea. Having passed on his knowledge to the new generation, you will mostly now find George on his beach, where he rents sunbeds and umbrellas. Visit George there; he’ll have many old stories to tell you.

Alex is our Chief instructor and is George’s eldest son. Since he was young, Alex has been surrounded by boats helping his Dad run the family business Georges’ Watersports. He is the guy in charge and knows everything you need to know about our boats, Latchi and the Akamas coastline. Alex also has a sixth sense when it comes to forecasting the weather.

Meet Charline, Alex’s Wife. Charline is an experienced sailor, sharpening her skills growing up on the Brittany coast of France. Charline is the principal of our RYA Training Centre and a powerboat instructor and skipper. She runs everything behind the scenes and has a great sense of humour. Charline will move mountains to ensure you have an outstanding boating adventure.

Yiannos Charter Skipper, RYA Powerboat Instructor and DJ – Hi there. I’m Yiannos, and I’m George’s youngest son. Like my Dad, I’m never away from the water for long – the sea is my lifeblood. People say I’m a popular skipper, which is pleasant to think about. I know the coastline better than many people and will take you to the secret lagoon. If you’re on board for a party with friends – I’m a pretty fabulous DJ too. 😎

Meet Stelian, although everyone calls him Steli! From Bulgaria, Steli has lived in Cyprus for over 15 years and has been working at George’s for more than 5-years. We call him “All in One” at George’s, as he can do it all. From fixing engines & boats, giving tuition to our self-drive boat customers and skippering our charter boats. Steli is a very chilled-out character; he likes nothing better than to go fishing at dawn when the world is still quiet. Always with a smile, he conveys an excellent mood throughout the entire team!

Meet “Desko“. Desko has been working at George’s Watersports for more than ten years; originally from Bulgaria 🇧🇬, Desko speaks Greek 🇬🇷 and English 🇬🇧 fluently. He is an excellent salesperson, a brilliant tutor for our self-drive boat customers, and a professional skipper. Through his hard work, Desko started his own Print Business. So when he is not busy on our charter boats, you will find him at his shop @wantedprint

Meet Daniel, who has just arrived in Cyprus from Portugal. He knows well beautiful landscapes and hot weather. Daniel worked as a captain for a boat company in the Algarve and made many boat trips. He has loads of boating knowledge, including powerboats and kite surfing. Daniel has a degree in technical mechanics, too. Like all of the staff at George’s, Daniel is qualified. He is such a good and caring man; he loves to cook for everyone at George’s but hates washing up. Who could blame him?

Bienvenue Clara. Wow! Clara brings her smile from the sunny Aveyron region of the South of France. Clara joined George’s Watersports Team as a marketing and sales intern as part of her bachelor’s in global management. If you are looking for her, she is in the office, working like a busy bee as Charline’s right-hand man, err, Woman.

Clara is a great listener and oh-so-helpful; she is a professional organizer with outstanding attention to detail. She will make sure that your experience is unforgettable. Clara also likes to party, so get ready to join her on the dance floor at Island Bar in the summer. 😉

Another wonderful day out on Full Monty today. As always, the George’s Watersports team was fantastic, welcoming and friendly. This is our family’s favourite day out. Just wonderful again this year. Thank you to you all; we will be back to see you all again next year for our sea and boat fix ❤️😍

Veronique Ruggirello

Best experience! A really professional company that does not joke with security. This is the most important thing when you rent a boat. The team is nice, smiling and always ready to help.

Nicola Davies

Good range of boats to choose from. Competitive rates. Excellent staff more bothered in meeting customers needs than posing around on the harbour 😂😉👍. Wouldn’t hire from anyone else and we’ve been back to Alex every year. Highly recommended.

Noel Butigieg
