Flying Fish is the trading name for Flying Fish Australia Pty Ltd. Flying Fish UK is an independently owned company that acts as an agent for Flying Fish Australia.
For details of the governing bodies that accredit Flying Fish training courses, see the awarding authorities tab on the About Us page.
There is always some small print to read, and we have tried to keep ours to a minimum. There are no catches!
When you make a booking with Flying Fish, you will be asked to confirm your agreement with the terms and conditions below.
Terms and Conditions
One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish, black fish, white fish, old fish, new fish (Dr Seuss)
Flying Fish supports the principle of equal opportunities and opposes discrimination on the grounds of age, gender, colour, race, nationality, creed, disability, marital status, sexual orientation or social background.
We aim to ensure that equality of opportunity is promoted and that discrimination, whether direct or indirect, is eliminated in our employment practices and access to our training and qualifications.
If you believe you have been the subject of discrimination, please talk to us to help us correct the problem.
You must hold insurance for medical expenses when you join Flying Fish outside your home country, including cover for your sports activities.
We recommend you also have insurance in place to cover course fees in case of unavoidable cancellation and for personal belongings in case of loss or damage.
European Health Insurance Card
Residents of the European Union visiting another EU country are strongly recommended to hold a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). Even if you have private medical cover or travel insurance which pays medical costs, holding an EHIC will simplify your attendance at a European hospital or medical centre.
If you need a visa to join Flying Fish, it will be a Visitor Visa, NOT a Student Visa. If you apply for a Student Visa, it will be refused, and this may prejudice any later application you make for the correct visa.
If you are looking for employment after training with Flying Fish, you may need a Working Visa.
If you hold an Australian passport, you do not need a visa for Greece. If you are a resident of Australia but not an Australian citizen, please see the website of the Greek Embassy in Canberra for information on applying for a visa.
Greece is a signatory to the Schengen Agreement, which has standardised the visa requirements of 25 European states and allows holders of the Schengen visa-free travel across their internal borders.
If you need a visa for Greece, you should apply for a Schengen visa at a Greek consulate in the country where you usually live.
Citizens of most countries can enter the UK for a period of up to six months without formalities.
If you do need a visa to join Flying Fish in the UK, it will be a General Visitor visa. DO NOT apply for a Student Visa.
To find out if you need to apply for a visa, go to the Visas and Immigration section of the UK Government website.
Apart from New Zealanders, everyone from overseas needs a visa to enter Australia.
If you are joining a Flying Fish course or event and you have no intention of working afterwards, you need a visitor visa, usually issued electronically. DO NOT apply for a student visa.
If you plan to work after training, you need a work visa. Unless you have sponsorship from an employer, it will be a Working Holiday Visa, typically issued online, to applicants up to the age of 35. You must be a citizen of a country with a reciprocal arrangement with Australia.

Health and Fitness
When you book your place on a Flying Fish course or event, you are asked to declare any medical conditions that may affect you.
If you have any concerns about your health, we suggest you speak to your own medical doctor or physician about your fitness to take part in the relevant sports activities at Flying Fish.
If you are travelling, you should also ensure you are aware of any immigration health requirements for countries you intend to visit after leaving us.
