Almost 40 years young!

Ah, the 1980's! 

  • The first Space Shuttle, Columbia takes off
  • USA and Russia end the "Cold War", leading to the fall of the Berlin Wall
  • IBM Personal computer was released
  • Radioactive debris from the Chernobyl disaster circles the world
  • Global Positioning System time epoch begins at 00.00 UTC
  • Rubic's Cube is introduced at a toy convention in UK!
  • Pierre Trudeau starts the decade as Canada's Prime Minister


CANPAC Divers is incorporated by Glen Costello in Vancouver, BC!

Now, almost 40 years later, we are proud to continue the CANPAC legacy with a recognition that not only are we committed to delivering the highest quality of commercial diving expertise to the global market we serve, but also recognize the much broader range of services we deliver to our customers, thus, a slight change to the name!

To celebrate, here is a recent ad we ran in the wonderful magazine:  CADC - Canadian Association of Diving Contractors

As we start 2019, it is always good to look back at how we got here and what our goals are going forward. In a business that is seeing dramatic change, one thing remains the same from the day, we opened our doors almost 40 years ago and that is to meet and exceed our customers expectations in service while being competitive in price and with an absolute commitment to safety!

Ah, the future is certainly exciting!!!!
