Scuba diver jobs, commercial diver jobs, helidiver jobs in Dubai and UAE

Scuba diver jobs and commercial diver jobs in Dubai and UAEWorking as a diver is working in another world, a world that has never been fully explored, and full of adventure. An underwater world is where you live when you have a diving job.

The diving career opportunities are vast, especially in Dubai and UAE. It all depends on your underwater interests. When most people think of diving, they imagine tropical islands and coral reefs, but this is only oe of the opportunities of what the diving world can offer. Your future career can go in any direction you choose – dive instructor, pearl diver, oil worker, treasure hunter, underwater photographer, and many other specialities. The opportunities are limitless.

Diving jobs offer you the opportunity to travel, make money, enjoy what you do, and face a challenge everyday. Wherever there is water to explore, SCUBA divers can find work. If this sounds like how you want to spend a year off, or possibly the rest of your life.

How about working at a beach resort as a dive instructor? Or for a cruise line? Or as a technical diver? Let the adventure begin! Scuba Job Offers in Dubai

 

As Dubai has no natural reef environment, recreational diving in the gulf is more wreck diving. Some of the wrecks date back to the first gulf war and before. The wreck sites are only accessible by boat. The general visibility in the Gulf is between 5 and 15 metres due to the currents and the huge amount of dredging that has taken place to make the hand-made islands (The World and The Palms). So most of the jobs in Dubai can be as commercial diver.

Commercial diving is one of the most lucrative diving career paths. But you should become a commercial diver first of all as you have a passion for diving and working in the water.

A commercial diver makes a solid income. The pay range can stretch from $18,000 U.S. up to $80,000 U.S. + and your work year may include chunks of time off. Most employers pay an hourly wage, plus hazard pay on top of that. You make more money based on the depths of your dives (‘depth pay’) or by diving in an enclosed space, like a pipeline. It is not unrealistic for a commercial diver to make over $1,000 a day! It all depends on the amount of experience you have and the type of diving you’re doing – so be prepared to pay your dues before pulling in the big money.

Most commercial diving jobs require a high school diploma or the equivalent. You also need to be trained in diving beyond the basic certifications of a recreational diver. It is highly recommended to attend a commercial diving school to get all of the necessary training, from welding to depth diving to gas mixing. Many of these schools will also help you find a job upon completion of the course. Commercial divers are essentially underwater construction workers. You will most likely find yourself working for an employer like the oil industry, government, or law enforcement, offering jobs like underwater welding, salvage, underwater inspections, oil industry work like exploring or drilling, and underwater testing. in Dubai, UAE and GCC there lots of companies in the oil field.

Remember that in when diving, your life is in your hands – it is absolutely necessary to be 100% confident in your skills.

As a commercial diver, you will work in some intense underwater settings: waves, depth, pressure, darkness, currents, enclosed areas and cold. In conditions like these, it is important to be in great shape. Those conditions are what make commercial diving such an adventure! A commercial diving job can be done onshore or offshore and are often contract work, so be ready to travel the world to stay in steady employment.

Onshore commercial diving takes you into lakes, harbors, streams, and even sewage pipes! You may have the job to inspect the steel in a bridge, or to replace a filter on a dam, or to check a ship for corrosion, or to search a mountain lake for a lost car. There are endless possibilities and these diving jobs are easier for a newbie to get after paying your dues for a few weeks.

Offshore commercial diving generally leads you into the employment of oil companies. Unlike onshore diving, the hours can be crazy. You work out in the ocean, so once again, be prepared to travel. You will generally be doing underwater welding, pipeline exploration, or oil drilling. You’ll have to pay your dues first though, so expect to do grunt work for some time.

But in the UAE there are also lots of recreational diving centers that may look for divemastes, bringing people to the most beautiful sites in the Gulf.

The Musandam weekend day trip is fantastic. You go on a traditional old dhow (the typical Arabian boat) and sail up the coast of Musandam set against an almost moon-like landscape of orange brown mountains. The dives are predominantly sloping sides descending from the mountains. The sites are beautiful, with plenty of corals and teeming with sealife – including turtles, rays, morays, fusilleers, cuttle fish etc. There are some dives with great swim-throughs. The visibility is far superior to the Gulf dives. The water can be around 30 degrees in November – so almost you could no need a long wetsuit. You hear about strong currents in Musandam, however if you are a reasonable swimmer, with a reasonable level of fitness you shouldn’t have any problems at all.

The day trip to Fujairah is also very nice. You go by speed boat to the local dive sites, which tend to be big underwater rocks or coral beds on the sand. The sites are not very deep – so perfect for divers who only have Open Water certifications. The sites are packed full with sealife, huge schools of fish, turtles which will let you get up right close to them. Because the dives are quite shallow it means you can stay under for much longer… which when the water is 30 degrees is just perfect.
