Frequently Asked Question

How do I log into the NOAA Dive Log (NDL)?

In order to use the NDL, you need to be a NOAA Diver in active or suspended status. Inactive divers (former NOAA Divers) will not be able to log in. 

To access the NDL webpage first go to the NDL Portal, then log in using your user name and password. 

The new NDL site can be accessed using any internet browser. If you need assistance logging into the NDL please contact or call (206) 526-6196.

Frequently Asked Question

What do I do if I am assigned to a new diving unit?

Every NOAA Diver must inform the NOAA Diving Program of a change in duty station as soon as it occurs. Divers should complete the NOAA Form 57-03-04 Diving Unit Change to update the unit contact information. This allows the Diving Program to change the information in the Diver Management System (DMS) and to charge equipment fees to the correct unit.
