Q:

How much do underwater welders make?

A:

An underwater welder can earn between $100,000 and $200,000 per year, according to the American Welding Society. As most underwater welders are paid per project, the actual salary varies from job to job.

Factors affecting pay include the availability of projects, the depth at which a welder works, the methods used for diving and the environment in which the work takes place. If a welder-diver has other skills, such as underwater photography skills, drafting, underwater cutting and fitting and rigging, the chances of landing a project and commanding a higher salary are increased provided that the skills and qualifications are maintained.
