About Us

underseaROV acknowledges the Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the first inhabitants of the nation and the traditional custodians of the lands where we live, learn and work.  In particular, we acknowledge the Boorooberongal people of the Dharug Nation as the traditional custodians of this place we now call The Hills Shire; the Walbanga people of the Yuin Nation in what we now call Batemans Bay; and the Gubbi Gubbi people of the Kabi Nation of what we now call Brisbane.

underseaROV is a distributor and repairer of underwater remotely operated vehicles (ROVs). We are an expert resource for marine ROV installations in Australia, offering excellent customer support and innovative custom solutions for commercial, marine research, and recreational customers.
