Dive Facilities

URI maintains a variety of infrastructure and resources for scientific diving. These include a dive locker at the Bay Campus for local scientific diving, a dive locker at the Tootell Aquatics Center for dive training, a vehicle to transport divers to/from field sites, and an NSF funded portable van designed to support shipboard dive operations aboard the R/V Endeavor or other UNOLS ships.

URI’s dive locker resources are configured to support from shallow training using conventional SCUBA to advanced modes of diving for scientific exploration. All equipment is maintained to high industry and manufacturer standards.
