We love what we do.

The Copper Collar Group enables organizations to simultaneously prioritize safety and efficiency while conducting diving, salvage, rescue and recovery, and maritime operations.

We dive deep to assess your organization by applying our Program and Operational Appraisal system where we look at all facets of your program; administrative, functional, and operational. From there, we work with our clients to develop customized solutions to meet their specific needs. 

We ensure that your people are empowered with the right equipment, procedures, and training to align them with your mission so your team can achieve its full potential. 

Safety and efficiency can coexist – this is our passion, and it’s our promise to you. 

The Mission

Ensuring that your team is well equipped to conduct safe and efficient diving operations in support of rescue operations, recovery missions, scientific diving, or deep-sea salvage and construction.

Our team of former U.S. Navy Master Divers bring hundreds of years of combined experience in all forms of diving, recompression therapy, and maritime program leadership for your team to leverage.

The Impact

We care deeply about the people we serve and the dangerous missions they are charged with. We couple that caring attitude with significant lived experience in hostile environments to enable you to keep your team safe.

Our Story

The U.S. Navy’s Deep-Sea diving school was established in Newport, RI in 1882. Since then, Navy Divers have served around the globe in wide-ranging, high-risk maritime missions such as salvage, ship repair, research and development, underwater demolition, and espionage. We have developed and perfected diving equipment and systems, techniques, training, and doctrine during our rich and storied history. Each mission in a hostile underwater environment is critical and success is the only option when there are no second chances. 

Our team is made up of former Navy Master Divers all of whom have reached the pinnacle of diving and leadership in the Navy. Each one brings 2-3 decades of experience in a vast array of complex missions, diving apparatus, hyperbaric medicine, training, maintenance, and program oversight. Today, we apply our hundreds of years of combined diving experience in the most complex of environments in order to enable your team to operate in the safest, most efficient way possible.
