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

Daniel, a familiar face you might remember from last year’s Safety Boat or as a skilled Powerboat Instructor. We’re thrilled to announce that he’s back and has taken on the role of a Skipper! With his in-depth knowledge of the coast, Daniel knows the ins and outs like the back of his hand, ensuring that your day on board with him will be nothing short of amazing.

Not only does Daniel possess a wealth of boating expertise, including powerboats and kitesurfing, but he also holds a degree in technical mechanics. Like all the dedicated staff members at George’s, Daniel is highly qualified and passionate about providing exceptional service. Join us on a journey with Daniel as your Skipper, and get ready for an unforgettable day filled with adventure, comfort, and delectable treats.

Remember Antonin from last year? Well, he now holds his diploma and has returned to George’s as a permanent team member in 2023 – a big welcome back from us all!

From Laval in the Pays de la Loire of France (think Le Mans) – Antonin is a true professional eager to learn. Super motivated and athletic, you will find him in the office and the harbour. He can do it all, from reservations to boat driving. Antonin is such a friendly guy and patient. He is the only one who volunteers to work at the office with all the girls (hmmm…) – he deserves a 👍 👍

Meet Arthur, a familiar face from last year. Excitement fills his heart as he embarks on his journey to pursue his dream as a maritime professional. Fresh back from a voyage of discovery aboard a beautiful Jeanneau Sun Loft 47 sailing boat, he experienced a remarkable 15-day voyage, where he found his true calling in navigation. From route planning to steering (helming), the boat captivated him and fueled his enthusiastic nature.

Equipped with a BAC (Baccalauréat) in Marine Culture and a BTS (Brevet de Technicien Supérieur) in Navigation, Stability, and Meteorology, Arthur stands prepared to heighten his skills. Determined to take the next step in his career, he is back at George’s Watersports in Latchi for the summer. One cannot help but sense his deep love and dedication to his profession.

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.
