“When operating a company like ours, one of the most important things is making sure you are dealing with good service companies to supply your daily operating needs. That’s why for the past 8 years one of those companies for us has been Independent Diving Services. John Richoux and his staff quickly get to our vessels when we need a diver and do a great job getting us back up and running.”

“On top of it. From start to finish, I know what is going on with my job. I’m informed when the diver is going to arrive. After the job, I’m informed directly by the diver what took place. I’m then emailed a detailed report, usually on the same day. And if that weren’t enough, an even more detailed report arrives, addressed to me, within days of the job. Like I said, on top of it.”

Blessey Marine
Harahan, Louisiana


“Independent Diving Services got me out of a real jam. I originally called another dive company that promotes themselves as a wheel job company, only to have a diver come out and spend a large amount of time trying to remove two tires. He gave endless reasons as to why it could not be done. When IDS showed up, not only did they remove the tires efficiently, they found a third tire that was missed by the other company altogether.”

“During my first experience with IDS, we had a very difficult situation involving one of our vessels in a crucial time frame. We had tried other dive companies with no success, and then we found IDS. They showed up equipped, on time, and with the manpower to complete the job in a very timely fashion. I was impressed with the tools. I was impressed with the people. I was very pleased with the result.”

Bordelon Marine
Lockport, Louisiana


“It was late Friday night, and I had a serious situation. I needed to send a dive team offshore to meet one of my vessels that was in need of assistance. The location for departure changed three times from Intracoastal City to Morgan City and finally to Leeville. IDS handled each change and had a diver at the dock in no time. The divers were offshore for 22 hours, working in rough water. IDS got me out of a real bind.”
