Mark R. McNulty


Hire Divers Association, Founder & CEO

Our mission is to help the public who can't afford to hire divers after Water-related Disasters or who are victims of Personal loss.

Formed by three Volunteer Recovery Divers, we were created after Hurricane Sandy because of the great need to help people who couldn't find divers to help them recover their personal items off the New Jersey coast. In addition to Underwater Recovery, we have grown to provide Pollution Cleanup services and educational programs to schools regarding the importance of water safety. Hire Divers Association is a Federally Approved Volunteer nonprofit Disaster Recovery
