Hi I'm Ty and I have some training in diving and gold hunting . I would love to come to Nome and work . I have no kids and not married. The reason for that is for a living I kick box . But I'm getting a little old for that some I would love to try my luck with the gold. Thanks Ty. U can reach me at rayman20072002 @yahoo.com
What a joke! !!!!!!! Ray Tyree is a cheat & a thief.
Hi, i realise there are probably MANY people who have responded & I realise that I live a LONG way away however I thought I would touch base as this job fits me well.I was brought up with a farming background & can make most things work with a little scrap lying around, I then joined the Royal Navy as a the youngest Clearance diver (UDT)up to that point (qualified at 17). After leaving the RN I was a commercial diver for 22 years until 2004. I then took a few close protection courses & spent 3.5 years in Baghdad working alongside the US Corp of Engineers. I think I would be an asset to any diving team however I reside in Sweden now which is obviously a long way from Alaska! The upshot of living here is that I am well used to the cold & having to drill to fish :-)Ok, that's it from me, if you ever need any help in your operation I would love to head over...Best regards,John Steele

Wanna dive safety and hard working my name is jason 5033072156
Sounds like you need a lucky qualified u/w specialist trained in low viz conditions? That be me....... I would love to help you . Msdt#39942
BSAC Advanced diver. 1000+ dives varying from phillipines to north of scotland. Experience in zero viz and cold water down to 60m.Available late july and all of August, also available December.Would like the life experience as much as the work.
Are you interested in working full-time for the next six weeks on a dive team doing underwater dredging near Ft Myers, FL?The water is warm and shallow (10') but the viz is low. We only dredge three or four days a week. We are looking for a team leader to run a three man boat. Only drama-free and easy going need apply. Daily paperwork takes less than 15 minutes because this is a diving job!We are also looking for a less experienced dredge diver. Contact Divers@Jetfoods.com
If you are still looking for a good dependable and reliable diver I am very interested. I am advanced open water certified through P.A.D.I, I have hundreds of dives logged ranging from deep water dives to ship wreck dives and more. I also worked as a diver on a commercial sea urchin and sea cucumber operation while doing that in my spare time I did a lot of bottom cleaning. I love to be in the water whether there is excellent visibility or poor visibility. I don't mind diving in bad weather and getting tossed around doesn't bother me. So if you need some one you can count on to go down and stay down regardless of the weather I'm your man. I'm a 27 year old fit white male. My name is Marcus and I would love to be given the opportunity to dive for you. You can contact me via e-mail at email@example.com

Who would even consider employing somebody without a Commercial Diving Qualification and at least a few hundred hours of commercial dive time under their belts as a minimum prerequisite!Get real sports divers, that means you guys with PADI, NAUI, SSI certifications, YOU ARE NOT QUALIFIED....you are just making yourselves look stupid by writing on here.But there again, with the cowboys working out there that I have seen on the TV show, why would you even want to work with those idiots???Without a doubt, the biggest bunch of f*($%Ups ever, claiming to be divers.

Hello. My name is Lizzy Smith and I am from Tampa, Florida. I am extremely interested in diving but have no experience....just a superior swimmer since I lived in Florida my entire life. Also have experience swimming in the Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic Ocean, Caribbean Ocean, and Mediterranean Sea...so Alaskan waters will be a piece of cake. I have experience gold pan mining in North Carolina and Tennessee. I am not married and don't have children so I am up for any adventure. :-) I have a BA in Fine Arts so can't use that in today's economy ....usually over qualified for mediocre jobs I apply for....so hoping to snag a job that "draws" from my adventurous and enduring side. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks for your consideration. lol Live, Laugh & Love

Scuba divers are cute n cuddly. I'm a commercial constructiondiver/supervisor on a 160' 4 point vessel in the gulf of mexico. Been diving over 15 years now.

Go deep or go home thanks.
