Our crew

Our crew is made up of divers, dive techs, tenders and skippers employed on a permanent basis, meaning that clients can expect familiar, loyal and hardworking teams. We also have a great, reliable team of cover divers waiting in the wings should we need them. Our dive teams are supported by a dedicated office crew, who work with meticulous attention to detail to help our clients meet the highest industry standards. All our divers have a minimum HSE qualification. We invest heavily in developing the skills and abilities of our workforce and provide them with the most up to date and relevant training. This not only benefits them but also our organisation and our clients.

It is vital to us that all teams work to the same high standard, all staff are easily recognised on and off site in their MDive uniforms, vans and vessel which are fitted out with standard kit.

We work closely with HSE to raise the standards and focus on Fish Farm Diving as well as with RBS Mentor for advice and guidance on Health and Safety and Employment Law.
