But Aaron,

They are not cruising jobs. You are stuck there. Maybe for years.
Where do you leave the boat when you ave a job at Club Med?

And don't try break in to commercial diving work... The local divers will have you straight into immigration.

So it's a long hard process to get accepted.

I was reading that the 1 year work permit paper for St Martin is $1,600! That's a lot of $12 dives!
