Naming your boat is a rite of passage. It can say a lot about you, your passions, and your interests. You can even get away with something rude and clever. 

Many divers will combine their passion for scuba diving with something with a pun in it. In the examples shown below, a lot of the boat names for divers you could take inspiration from have a funny aspect to them.

Others are more serious, but most of all, I’d like to think that the ideas generated below are quite clever, creative, and would make an ideal choice for your dive boat.

Boat names for divers that might not be a good idea

One word of warning though; whatever you end up naming your dive boat, bear in mind how it might sound when making a distress call.

If it’s not easy to spell or pronounce, repeating the name over the radio could cause you a few problems.

This is why you don’t see working vessels with tasteless, offensive, or complex names… aside from Titan Uranus which you can see in the photo below!

Titan Uranus was not banned

Believe it or not, this is real and was not banned.

Another consideration is whether the dive boat name might be deemed as offensive to others. Yes, it might look cool when docked in the marina, but if trailered at home, what would your neighbors think?

I’ve covered offensive and rude boat names in a lot more detail elsewhere on the website. They are popular, but just think about the possible ramifications.

Also, if you are a member of a dive club, they might not take kindly to a rude name. Or it might not put your business in the best light if you provide diving days for customers.

The most popular dive boat names tend to go down the traditional route of taking a female name, or a passion you have, or the location you’re based in.

Want more naming inspiration?

You don’t have to give your dive boat a name that relates to scuba diving. You could choose something completely different relating to another passion or interest. Here are some of the more popular boat name ideas I’ve recently published on Pontoonopedia.

The last word…

Can you think of any other names that scuba divers and the diving community would love to use for their own vessel?

If you have any clever, funny, or creative ideas, I would love to hear them!
