Yacht Scuba Safety (YSS), a provider of consultations for establishing scuba safety procedures and emergency protocol standards for superyachts, has announced the successful completion of 61m M/Y Roma’s scuba diving operations programme which included the installation and set-up of a PADI Dive Centre.
M/Y Roma, which travels the Mediterranean and is available for charter, is fully capable of teaching dive courses and supervising recreational diving activities with the highest standards of safety. The on-board dive team within the crew of 16 consists of one instructor, two divemasters and three rescue divers; all trained under the guidance of Ondine’s Yacht Scuba Safety programme.
Janusz Walinski, captain of M/Y Roma commented, “Brad Robertson and his Yacht Scuba Safety team has turned M/Y Roma’s fun diving crew into an organised diving operation ready to take our charter guests to the underwater world. In the capable hands of Yacht Scuba Safety we were certified and trained. We are now a certified PADI Superyacht Diving Centre ready to offer a competitive service to our guests. I can recommend highly Scuba Yacht Safety to any yacht who wants to organise and improve their diving operations. What you learn with Brad Robertson will be exactly what you need to provide your guests with a taylor-made diving service equal to your overall Superyacht standard.”
YSS have also developed the dive operations programme and manual of operations for M/Y Vava. Glen McDonnell, captain of the yacht commented, “Ondine Escape & Yacht Scuba Safety were engaged by M/Y Vava to formulate a safe diving program for our operations on board Vava which has proven to be a very significant addition to our safe operations when engaging in diving activities. Brad and Nick brought to my attention that they could formulate a specific customised safe operations manual for Vava under the title of the Yacht Scuba Safety programme.
“Given that we have had limited diving activity in recent years but carry a full complement of dive gear I agreed to their proposal and am more than satisfied with the results. Both Nick and Brad visited Vava on a number of occasions to assess the platform, equipment and the relative experience of our dive team so that they could formulate a Vava-specific manual of operations plus identify any areas that needed to be addressed to ensure our visit to the Chagos and Indian Ocean would be completed with maximum awareness and safety. The result was a comprehensive manual of operations for the greater range of potential dive experiences we would encounter which was tailored for the limitations of the equipment we have on board plus the relative experience of the divers.”
