anyone know of any entry level scuba jobs available? seaworld, florida aquariums, disney, law enforcement diver? nothing crazy like under water welding or cold water diving. looking to make a career out of doing what I love, but it seems like there arent many lavish dive jobs unless you move to the islands.

"Seaworld, Florida aquariums" or any other aquariums are usually volunteers. Not sure about Disney. NASA pays safety divers but there’s probably a waiting list for that plum. Have you looked at jobs.gov?

Being a public safety diver for law enforcement in Florida sounds like fun, no viz canals with gators :(

Most diveboats in Florida are crewed by divers working for tips and free air although i do know a DM who said it paid better than being a school teacher :)

I’m a safety diver for the movie and tv industry. I require my divers to be rescue or higher. Every production company that I have worked with has that same requirement.

Good luck !!!

If you live near a marina - divers are always scrubbing bottoms and changing zincs. I just paid $600.00 for new zincs and to scrub my 45’ trawler.
