I need cold hard facts, no fluff. I'm 31 years old. Am I too old to start a successful career as an inshore commercial diver? I'm getting conflicting views. Some are saying I'm not too old (mostly from training schools) and others are saying that companies prefer to hire divers in their 20's and at 31 I should be getting out of the water. Level with me please.

Hi - I'm no expert but I would have thought that it depends on the individual - It's interesting that manyHimalayan climbers come into their own in their 30's and above and you dont get much more demanding than that - either physically or psychologically!
