I just occurred to me, if you bought/hired/stole a small rescue or research submarine (the kind with omni directional impeller thrusters, remote manipulator arms, high end sonar/magnetometer/inertial guidance/multispectrum camera s/ULF radio electronic gear, docking cuffs and air locks) you might be able to remove the requirement for individual deep diving. Or make things much safer and easier for the divers if they were still required.

Imagine how satisfying it would be to raid a NUMA facility, execute that hyper-macho narcisist Dirk Pitt when he refuses to surrender control of his ship and steam off into the open ocean under cover of darkness in the finest Horn of Africa traditions of piracy.
