Aqua Diving was established in Sharjah in 1975 by Clive Frost, a young diver who saw an opportunity in the then little-known emirate and took a risk to make it work.
This paid off with huge growth and changes in the region assisting the company's development and after more than 40 years Mr Frost still remains in the forefront as Director of the company.
In addition to maintaining our original office in Sharjah, we now have offices in Dubai (Head Office), Abu Dhabi, Fujairah and representation in Oman & Qatar.
Our services have also expanded from diving operations, and now include supply of purpose built vessels and various marine craft, Remote Observations Vehicle (ROV) inspections, and underwater burial/trenchingworks. With our very own fleet of purpose-built support vessels a growing proportion of the business is now dedicated to charter and support for offshore oilfield work.
Unlike other successful local companies that have been swallowed up by conglomerates, Aqua Diving Services retains its independence - adopting international standards and combining it with local knowledge and experience to deliver on expectations for a wide variety of clients in the Gulf.
Our success reflects our unique expertise and knowledge of the industry and the region. We have been operating in the Gulf for over forty years and there isn't much we haven't seen. This experience helps us to understand the unique challenges and opportunities faced by businesses in the region.
We believe that one of the facts that makes us stand out from others is that we offer 24/7 service as well as remaining competitively priced. We have an in-house store of readily available and specialised equipment including workboats, ROV's, cable-laying machines and mobile decompression chambers as well as an ever-expanding selection of commercial diving gear that is constantly serviced and renewed.
We pride ourselves on building good relationships with customers and the longevity of the company and the fact that we still still retain many of our original clients is a testament to our approach.
In June 1980, the Company was granted a Decree of Incorporation by His Highness Sheikh Sultan Bin Mohammed Al Qassimi, the Ruler of Sharjah.
We have strong relationships with local people & local institutions, as well as international companies in the Gulf. As a result, Aqua Diving has grown as the region has.
