What We Do

We offer adventure as an extraordinary experience to everyone, individual or organization, in their everyday lives. For leisure, locals look to us for weekend watersports or diving holidays abroad while tourists find memorable adventure activities with us. Professionally, youths train for exciting marine careers with us while corporations look to us for adventure teambuilding activities and marine engineering solutions.

Why We Do It

We love the outdoors and want everyone to share our passion for it. Our strong background in the marine environment has enabled us to create a full ecosystem from teaching youths to appreciate our oceans and inspiring them to learn to dive, to training them to have careers as a marine biologist, a commercial diver, or even a public rescue diver, and finally offering them a diverse and inclusive workplace to use their skills to help the community and to provide a service to other businesses.

“Poni redefines adventure, not just as a fleeting moment, but as a lifestyle that everyone can personally connect with everyday. ”
