The great thing of ''Team Waterworld'' is that we all have different backgrounds . We all came from another parts of jobs but there is one thing in common… and we all have one passion.. SEA… FLORA... FAUNA... and geographic interests... Plus we love to explore... and specially not on our own.. but with our guests ! Which makes our group unique and special .
We like to joke a little , we like to listen to our guests and we LOVE to speak about our knowledge of the islands…
Can you imagine, we are moving more then 6000 guests a year from 47 different countries… (2018).. That means, so many cultures we are mixing on our tours... and we like to use that 'tool'… to make the tour unique.. to learn each other during the day, and ending up at the end of the day like a family... 'a Waterworld Family' !!! .. Believe us.. this is so special!!
2019 is going to be a crazy and amazing year again.. with our standard crew, but as well some surprising new team members.. But, we don’t want to blab out everything… So stay in touch and hopefully meeting you on board this season!!
We just introduce a few team members for now… :)
