The Naval Diving Unit (NDU) is a Special Forces unit of the Republic of Singapore Navy, and is regularly tasked in salvage operations, underwater mine demolition and commando-type warfare.

Basic training includes:
  • drown-proofing training
  • pool competency
  • fast roping
  • improvised explosive device disruption
  • underwater mine disposal
  • explosive ordnance disposal
  • special land operations

NDU divers are also regularly sent overseas for training, in particular, with the US Army Special Forces (Green Berets), US Navy SEAL and the British Special Air Servicemarker. In 2001, naval officer Captain Wong Foo Chan became the first foreigner to top his class in the Green Berets course, and received a commendation medal for this achievement. He had also completed the Navy SEAL course in 1999.

NDU divers were sent to conduct salvage operations after the crash of SilkAir Flight MI185marker on 19 December 1997, which killed all 104 people on board.
