SCUBA & surface supply diving


Wessex Archaeology’s divers have provided diving services to national curators since 2003 and our divers are regularly commissioned to dive on sites of archaeological significance. We provide staff, equipment and experience. We can provide an appropriate vessel for the project or can work from one of your vessels. With expertise under the water and on deck our teams ensure that work is carried out efficiently, maximising the brief windows of opportunity available to us when working offshore. Whilst our divers are most commonly called to investigate ship, submarine and aircraft wrecks lying offshore in British Waters, we are also available to dive on structures and to explore seabed surfaces where archaeological potential is suspected and to dive in inland waters. Our divers use the latest equipment and techniques including diver tracking and voice comms, and can collect high quality stills and video imagery.
