Matt & Robin Lohnes fight the sea in the world’s deadliest workplace: The North Atlantic.

Need a ferry busted out of an icy river and towed through raging currents? Looking for lost military hardware on the bottom of Davy Jones’ locker? Shipwrecks, sub-sea construction, hauling and hoisting. Who you gonna call with problems like that? For 50 years, the Lohnes’ family business, Dominion Diving has helped people fight back when things go wrong at sea.

It’s a 24-hours, high-stakes operation with a team of 40 people: divers, ROV pilots and salty sea captains. They’ve invested millions in the latest boats, gears, gadgets and technology – all backed up by an old-fashioned thirst for adventure on the high seas.

Matt’s bigger than life, louder than hell and ready for anything. His brother Robin is serious, safety-minded and focused. Robin struggles to rein Matt in - but Matt’s hubris, determination and drive are what keeps the company afloat.

"Let me tell you about the sea. It’s greedy and it’s mean. It’ll take everything you care about and it doesn’t give a damn. "

Episode 8

The British Navy’s largest aircraft carrier arrives in Halifax and Dominion’s hired to get its groceries and clean its toilets. Nothing’s easy when you’re servicing a floating city: the truck carrying the barges crashes, Dominion’s boat breaks down, and there’s a shortage of dumpsters. Meanwhile, Robin helps an old friend find a car he lost…at the bottom of a lake.

Episode 2

Shawn and the dive team are working on a secretive job for the Canadian Navy. It’s a logistical nightmare – with divers, shore connections and classified hardware being lowered down the ocean floor. The big bosses are out of town, so it’s sink or swim for Shawn.

Episode 1

Winter storms froze a passenger ferry in place on the banks of a raging river. Matt races on land, while Herbie battles ice, tides and weather to get to the ferry on time. They’ve got to bust the ferry out and get it into dry dock for repairs. It’s a $250,000 job and any delays mean Dominion could lose the contract.
