Rory Golden spent 25 years in the music industry,15 of which he was the Managing Director of Virgin Records Ireland.

After this he founded his own company, Flagship Scubadiving Ltd. and became the first Irish diver to visit the site of RMS TITANIC, in August 2000. He was a member of an expedition that recovered 800 artefacts from nearly 4,000 metres. His dive was in a Russian submersible, and he left a memorial plaque on the wreck on behalf of the people of Ireland. He also spotted the main ship’s wheel which was recovered on the dive.

In March 2013 he was a member of the Bezos Expeditions F-1 Engine Recovery Project that recovered 4 Apollo F-1 rocket engines from 4200 metres in the North Atlantic, including the centre one from Apollo 11. The team was awarded a Citation of Merit by the Explorers Club of New York
