Who are we?

Dive Professionals began in the small office of founder Henri Hemmerechts in The Hague - Holland. While working on a consulting assignment way back in 2007.  That was the time social networks appeared on the net. Promptly a group was formed on Linkedin, which quickly grew.
Other social networks followed, growing our members and followers base in the progress.

In 2017 for the 10 year anniversary of dive professionals, and to cope with a shift in policy of the socials networks and an increasing demand from our members; THE DIVE PROFESSIONAL was born. The first portal of it's kind for diving professionals.

All collaborators are volunteers, donating time and resources to the projects.

THE DIVE PROFESSIONAL is part of the IADP - DIVE PROFESSIONALS project, a not for profit project aimed at creating the world's first independent diving professionals association. Regardless of industry segments, nationalities or education.
