24 Hour UK-Wide Commercial Diving Services

About RS Divers

RS Divers has a proven track record of delivering successful commercial diving and marine civil engineering services throughout the UK. Our reputation has been built on technical expertise, safety, reliability and customer service.

One of the UK's leading commercial diving companies

RS Divers is an independent company established in 2005 by experienced diver Ruben Stephenson. While the business started small, preparing racing yachts for regattas, Ruben harboured an ambition to make RS Divers the South Coast’s premier commercial diving company. So he set about building a team of the best diving and engineering talent in the industry.

UK Based Commercial Divers

The company has enjoyed continuous growth ever since. Today we can tackle any underwater challenge and have a proven track record of safe and successful operations. We employ a team of over 15 divers and executives and serve a wide range of esteemed clients, including government agencies, utility companies, private shipping companies and port authorities. Our operations are focused on inshore (within 12nm) and inland waters across the whole of the UK, with our work regularly taking us into Europe.


Our highly qualified divers have more than 50 years of joint diving experience in any one team and are among the best in the business.

We are immensely proud of their expertise, people skills and can-do attitude, not to mention their 100% safety record. With a range of experience in civil engineering, ship maintenance and more, the team is versatile and can tackle everything from emergency salvage work or welding to long-term maintenance contracts.

However, our service starts way above sea level with our accomplished office staff. Based in Portsmouth, the heart of the UK’s maritime industry, our land-based team is well-regarded for their prompt and efficient service and excellent communication. Our internal processes are rigorous and user-friendly, meaning that our clients enjoy a thorough and efficient service from start to finish.

An exemplary reputation

We are a highly motivated team of professionals dedicated to excellent service. Our clients regard us as capable, reliable and versatile and appreciate our solution-driven attitude. Whatever the size or complexity of a project, we tackle it with enthusiasm and determination to get results.

While experienced in directing complex operations and managing other specialist teams, we’re equally adept at slotting into coordinated projects. As people, we’re affable and approachable and enjoy forming long-term working relationships with our clients. You can read our reviews here.

A commitment to continuous improvement

The development of industry standards is of great importance to us at RS Divers. We have our finger on the pulse of the changing maritime landscape and regularly undertake training and fact-finding missions to improve our knowledge and services.

As a team, we are highly adaptable and constantly expose ourselves to new ways of doing things. This ensures that we always propose solutions that are better than what currently exists and remain relevant in an ever-changing landscape. With almost two decades of experience under our belt, we understand that 80% of what we do relies on our knowledge and expertise.

That’s why we often prefer to keep things simple and efficient, as we’ve found that this approach allows us to deliver high-quality work in less time. However, we’re always open to new ways of working and strive to incorporate them whenever possible to deliver even greater value to our clients.

Working together, we recognise that being successful is not measured exclusively in financial profit; it is the quality of our approach and how this supports our people and clients which is the mark of our success.
