About Us


Years Serving  Santa Barbara


We strive for 100% customer satisfaction

Salty Dog Dive Service was founded in 1980 by Rick Sanchez and has been providing premier marine services for the last 40 years. Rick completed his commercial dive training on the east coast before moving to Santa Barbara. He developed a deep appreciation for the ocean and harbor while living and sailing on his Catalina 27' sailboat for fifteen years. Salty Dog has grown and developed into a premier marine contracting and dive service company with a primary focus on the highest quality work, engaged customer service and awesome crew members. 

Giving back to our community is important to our team.
