DEEPEST SCUBA DIVE IN SEAWATER - WORLD RECORD ATTEMPT
SUPPORT THE FIRST MAN TO DIVE TO 350M
Ahmed Gabr, a Dive Instructor and Technical Diver of 14 years experience is attempting to smash the current deepest dive world record of 318m (Nuno Gomez) with a dive to 350m. His attempt has been assessed and accepted by Guinness who are coming out to adjudicate Ahmed’s World Record Attempt on the 18th of September 2014, in the crystal clear waters of the Red Sea, off the coast of Dahab, South Sinai, Egypt.
This extreme dive is a real feat of human endurance. It will take 14 hours, and use about 90 tanks, breathed by Ahmed and his in-water support team of 9 multinational divers from H2O Divers Dahab.
Ahmed is a proud Egyptian who wants his dive to be a gift to the Egyptian people who have had a tough time recently in their fight for democracy.
A documentary is being made about Ahmed and his dive will filmed by Didier Noirot who shot for Jacques Cousteau on the Calypso, he won an Emmy for his work on Attenborough’s ‘The Blue Planet’. National Geographic have committed to air the documentary, and Sky are also interested.
