Diving Support

Our team is based in Portsmouth but is totally mobile as a unit, able to operate throughout the UK in the inshore sector.

All work is carried out in accordance with the HSE inland/Inshore Diving Regulations 1997; the team are accredited as meeting the ISO 9001:2000 standards for their Quality Management System; and they are full members of the Association of Diving Contractors (ADC), with all Dive Supervisors being ADC registered.
