The people listed on this page are fully certified commercial divers who work as film technicians above water as well as below. Their skills and experience from countless hours on set is invaluable underwater. They work as a team with an uncanny ability to read the situation underwater and respond as if they were of one mind.
Although they call Vancouver home, they are always willing to travel to distant locations across the globe to get the shots you need.
Please refer to our Dive Safety Regulations for an explanation of underwater personnel requirements and union jurisdictions in Vancouver.
For more information on underwater filming get connected to Canada's most experienced underwater film unit coordinators, pre-rigging specialists, and professional safety divers at underwatercrew@yahoo.com
