Our Mission

We are a volunteer and non-profit organization that assists the Kitsap County Sheriffs Office with Water Search, Rescue and Recovery Missions. When asked we also work with other Washington State counties.

The team responds to a variety of missions such as Dive Accidents, Vehicle/Vessel Recovery, Missing Persons and In-Water Evidence recovery. The SAR team consists of certified scuba divers and surface support tenders.


Underwater searches are designed around specific search patterns. We are trained in circular, jackstay, “U” pattern and expading square techniques.


Diver rescue following an accident, is the process of avoiding or limiting further exposure to diving hazards and bring a diver to a place of safety.


Recovery techniques depend upon the type and size of the object. We have experience with recovering stolen items, vehicles and drowning operations.
