World's Deepest Dive Record Brokwn

DEEPEST DIVE RECORD BROKEN

On September 18, Ahmed Gabr, a 41 year old Egyptian special forces diver, broke the world record for the deepest SCUBA dive wearing a BARE Trilam Tech Dry suit.

332.35 METERS (1090 FEET) DEEP

Gabr’s record-breaking dive took place in the Red Sea off the coast of Dahab, Egypt. He reached a depth of 332.35 m (1,090 ft.,4.5 in.), surpassing the existing record by 46 feet. It took him only about 12 minutes to reach depth and nearly 15 hours to return safely to the surface.

  1. Yeah, he's got a little suit squeeze there.
  2. I do like Bare's statement "Ahmed could have chosen any suit to make this historic dive. We appreciate that he chose BARE". Some manufacturers might make some wild claims that their suits are somehow better suited to doing such an extreme dive. I appreciate the honesty.
  3. Yeah, it is cool that he used a widely available suit. I've been eyeing one in my LDS...
  4. breath taking .... literally !!!
