It's a specialized field but can pay well. You might need to willing to travel to job sites, and of course there are the physical factors to think about. You may want to consider the Navy as a starting point.

Kenneth’s Answer

Underwater welding is both highly specialized and dangerous, but the pay is very lucrative (a lot). You will need to learn to weld and dive. I would suggest getting a recreational certification to get used to diving at the same time as pursuing a certification in traditional land-based welding. At some point you will need to get deep-diver and rebreather qualification. These are all essential steps to finding a good underwater welding program and will put you ahead of your peers who seek the same.

I know and underwater welder for the navy. He did well but I do feel it was a dangerous job. I believe the extremely deep dives did effect him over time. I'm not saying that its not a good field but I would research the effects of diving deep and risks with decompression over time.
