Company Overview:

River Diving & Salvage Inc. (RD&S) has been in business since 1978 and has two locations to serve you, the headquarters in St. Louis/Bloomsdale, MO and a second location in Paducah/Ledbetter, KY. We pride ourselves in quick response 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 day a year and carry all required insurance for the job at hand. All RD&S divers are certified by nationally accredited organizations, and highly trained in our in-house training facility. Both of our locations offer the same extended services, and will travel anywhere to get the job done.

The services we offer include diving and salvage, inspections, repairs, cleaning and debris removal, underwater video, emergency pumping and patching, air lift bags with up to 100,000 pounds of total lifting capacity (or more if needed), and high resolution sonar underwater locating equipment.

The work we perform pertains to all sizes of pleasure and commercial watercraft including boats, barges, floating docks, water intakes, dock support pilings, sea walls, revetment, piers, cooling towers, water tanks, and water supply and discharge piping.

Our fleet of trucks is equipped with diving supplies, welders, oxygen bottles, 2-inch through 10-inch portable high capacity gas and diesel pumps, patching supplies, and various other underwater tools, equipment, and materials.

We have a 24-foot fully equipped dive boat, an additional dive boat with a 'A' frame hoist, and a 25-foot sonar boat equipped with a Klein 3900 side scan and an Odem fathometer.
