Some History

S.A.R.O.V is a company that was started in South Africa by the Kieser family, the brothers whom both studied at the Underwater Center in Fort William, Scotland.  After completing the course they realized that although they had all the skills and knowledge required to enter industry; they were lacking enough experience to enter the job market. Their next best move was to get some equipment and go independent! Hence starting S.A.R.O.V South Africa.

It is our goal to create a private sector mechanism for scientists to study the 95% of the worlds ocean that still remains unexplored and to add to HD media archives. To assist divers and to eliminate human danger at all costs.
