Our team is bound by our oaths as former servicemen to honor and respect the rules, traditions and heritage of our craft.  We follow the letter of the law and accepted not interpreted practices

​M.V.P.D. Divers  will never utilize unproven methods or non industry approved practices or equipment, which eliminates unnecessary risk to life and property.

Many civilian diving contractors cut manpower & equipment to increase profit.  M.V.P.D. provides manning to required industry & government standards, provides industry recognized equipment, practices the highest safety standards and maintains recognized insurance coverage per job.  We willingly reduce our profit margin to guarantee diver's safety and to protect our clients’ interests & property.We pay above average wages equal to the risk our employees take on every dive they make and take every effort to ensure they are returned to their families who entrust their care to us. No other company in our industry does this. 

We pride ourselves in keeping U.S. Veterans employed while continuing to serve our client’s budgets and needs affordably and safely wherever we deploy.

We owe our clients the same respect and transparency we as consumers demand of all businesses and our government, we will never give less than expected.

 WHO WE ARE NOT ​ (Follow the hyperlinks attached to the underlined text for valid information)
Mil-Vet Pro Divers   is NO​T a  "Mom & Pop" SCUBA Company - we do not teach recreational diving principles nor do we condone it's use in our industry. We  do and will only promote the use of the right equipment and personnel for the job required.If the scope of work includes the use of the word "commercial or industrial", then by default;  only trained Commercial Divers may be used. This is an industry requirement not an optional, negotiable question.

M.V.P.D. does not manufacture or sell $200.00 hammers to our clients; the general public or our government we maintain a code of ethics & conduct superior to any competitor. Zero Tolerance, Zero Recordables, Zero Lost Time Incidents - Zero!
