Commercial Diving

Our commercial diving division is able to support complex, remote, large scale diving programs.

Pacific Marine Group was started in 1986 as a small commercial diving company based in Bowen, Qld. Now, over 25 years later, our commercial diving division has evolved into a leader in the commercial diving field in Australia, able to support complex, remote, large scale diving programs.

Commercial diving in the modern workplace is a highly regulated and therefore highly controlled activity. We operate under well documented Safety, Quality, and Project Management Systems as required by most Government and Private Industry clients. Pacific Marine Group was one of the first diving companies in Australia to gain ISO9001 Quality accreditation, and carries full WorkCover insurance for all employees (a useful comparison to make with smaller scale dive companies), as well as $20M Public Liability Insurance, and all necessary Contract Works and Equipment insurances.
