Is it still possible to be a commercial diver if you can't work on Saturdays for religious reasons?

This doesn't mean can't be overseas, this just means can't be working. The Seventh-day Adventist (Christian) Sabbath begins at sundown on Friday and ends at sundown on Saturday. Do employers give you those kinds of options? or is it pretty much you go when they tell you?

Offshore work is 24/7. No public holidays, Christmas's or New Year.
When all is said and done, more is said than done......

There's a very tolerant diving company in The Netherlands,
if our Muslim then they get you out of sat on Friday, when they put you back in on the Saturday they swap you for the Jude who gets out on that day, and the next day the catholic will be out of sat for 24hr whilst the Jude go's back in.
You even get a day off during the week when you are not in the mood, just contact the LSTSup and he will let you out.
Now I understand how you became religious.

Sounds good to me, can I go on the piss and come back on Monday. Here is a website about diving as a career http://commercialdivingcareers.com/
Enjoy your day off
