    Have you ever been on a liveaboard and wished you never had to get off?

    Are you a dive master or dive instructor looking to take your professional experience and skills into a new challenge?

    We are reaching out to dive professionals with a passion for delivering world class service who are interested in taking their expertise into the Superyacht industry.

    Galileo Maritime Academy is Asia's premier maritime training facility, located in Phuket Thailand, the home of Superyachts in Asia. As well as being accredited and approved by the UK government Maritime & Coastguard Agency (MCA), we also have the industry experience and network connections to assist those looking to get a start in this exciting and adventurous industry.

    Year-on-year, the quantity of Superyachts coming to Phuket in the high season increases. As the leading international maritime training academy in Asia Pacific, we aim to ensure demand for new crew candidates interested in embarking on a Superyacht career path is met.
