What is this website about?
First we need YOUR input about YOUR pay rate.  If you don't SUBMIT your rate this website will not serve it's purpose. So SUBMIT your rate so everyone can know.
Click here to post your rate!
This website is built to furnish an area or billboard for diving pay rates.  The goal is to publish all of the dive companies (In the Gulf of Mexico and any others submitted) pay rates for superintendents, supervisors, divers, and tenders.  This way we (the workers) know who is paying the best rates.  I can tell you the dive companies know how much their competitors are paying their employees.  This is an important factor as to why the Gulf divers are some of the lowest paid divers in the world.  The latest info on dive companies will be posted here on this home page and updated as often as possible.  If you know of a pay rate that is not correct or is missing or IF THE RATES ARE NOT CORRECT, POST A COMMENT and it will be updated.  Be specific if it can't be understood it won't be published.  Any other information is also appreciated.  IF YOU WANT ME TO PUBLISH RATES FOR OTHER AREAS OF DIVING EX. INLAND OR OTHER PARTS OF THE WORLD YOU MUST POST THEM SO I KNOW WHAT THEY ARE! PLEASE USE THE BULLETIN BOARD SO EVERYONE CAN SEE THEM IN CASE THEY CAN'T BE PUBLISHED RIGHT AWAY.  WE NEED YOUR HELP! Please keep it clean. 
The rates posted here are not guaranteed to be correct and the webmaster assumes no responsibility as to the correct information or rate for any dive company. Use this information at your own risk. Although I do check out the posted rates to the best of my ability and my ability is what I hear, receive through email & post on the board

HOW DEPTH PAY IS CALCULATED
   
For those of you who don't know how the GOM works depth pay here is a short example.  When I have posted $1.00 per foot as depth pay that is from 50-100 ft.  Then from 100-50 ft. the rate increases to $2.00 per ft.  Then from 100-150 ft the rate increases to $3.00  per ft.

Aquatica / Cal Dive-Lafayette LA

Position Rate high Rate low
Supervisors $25.00 hr $20.00 hr
Diver $19.00 hr $12.00 hr
Tender  $12.00 hr $10.00 hr

Depth pay $1.00 per ft/some sup receive retainers.  

Most if not all the diving companies in the GOM pay 12hr each day 8 reg and 4 OT (time 1/2).

Divers must supply their own diving equip.. (ex. dive hat, wetsuit, harness, bailout, knifes, just about anything worn or carried on your personal body) 
Most if not all companies pay sups deepest dive depth each day. They have health insurance programs, 401k and stock option plans.

NEEDED... COMMENTS FROM GLOBAL PERSONNEL & ALL GULF DIVERS!!!

Global Diving- New Iberia, LA

Position Rate high Rate low
Superintendents $625.00 per day $425.00 per day
Supervisors sat & air $25 hr $20 hr
Sat Divers $625.00 per day same
Diver $18.00 hr $12.00 hr
Tender $11.00 hr $9.00 hr

Lowest Depth pay in the Gulf has been raised to $1.00 per ft / Not sure if  Sup receive retainers.  I have been informed that Global has said they aim to pay 10% lower than the other companies and make up the difference with benefits like stock options etc..
 
April 2001 West Africa rates for  Global were 1st class diver was $211 a day plus 25% of day rate bonus for job completion or 60 days, whichever comes first. The rate worked out to what you would make in a week of day rate, plus 25% bonus. Africa does not pay depth or overtime, but they pay a bonus for gas and sat diving.

Torch-New Orleans, LA

Position Rate high Rate low
Superintendents 65K yearly see below 50K yearly see below
Supervisors  60K yearly see below 50K yearly
Sat Divers $625.00 per day $550.00 per day
Diver $18.00 hr $12.00 hr
Tender  $11.00 hr $9.00 hr

Depth pay $1.00 per ft 
Torch pays most Superintendents and some Supervisors a yearly salary $50.000 to $65.000 and a daily offshore bonus from $100.00 to $150.00. They see no distinction between Sat, Gas, Air or Barge Superintendents and donít really understand why one position may be worth more than another. By the way if you hire on with them get all details in writing, as things that are promised seem never to materialize.
