River Diving and Salvage, Inc. has been raising sunken barges and boats for over 30 years. We have trucks loaded and ready-to-go from our Missouri or Kentucky locations. We do work in all states, including Missouri, Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, Kentucky, Arkansas, Louisiana, and more. Call us today, and we can mobilize an experienced re-float team in less than 24 hours.

We carry our own welding machines, oxygen bottles, side-scan sonar, and everything else needed to locate, patch and raise your boat or barge. River Diving and Salvage has a long history of raising barges and boats in all kinds of conditions. After hurricane Katrina, we raised over a dozen sunken barges for the Army Corps of Engineers and other private parties.

We have lift-bag capability, as well as patch-and-pump. Our side-scan sonar can locate submerged boats, barges, cables, propellors and more. All of our truck are equipped with marine radios and walkie-talkies for seamless communication between water and shore.
