Man Overboard

Began operations in spring 2017; not wanting to be away from home as much as was required by commercial diving, Mr. Thomas studied the market locally and created Man Overboard with a business model that fills the gap between a guy using a hookah rig, and a full blown commercial dive service. With the personal touch of knowing all of our customers by name and ability to bring a full range of commercial services and equipment to bare if required.​ 

Man Overboard respects our customers, their vessels and the environment. All in water team members are at a minimum PADI open water diver certified; most are instructor level divers and dive masters. Our commercial operations team members have all have been though certified commercial diving schools and have years in the field of commercial diving. With this amount of experience comes trust; Man Overboard is fully insured and bonded; that is why local marinas and private owners invite us on their docks with their customers and vessels.
