“So guys, you’ve done your 18m dive and now are starting to think about going deeper? there are many steps you can take now to get your 30mtrs, 40mtrs or even DEEPER certifications!
Many people ask me ‘what is the deepest you can go in diving’? Now, this question is very general. The deepest claim for an Open Circuit SCUBA DIVE is 330m . This occurred just a few weeks after Nuno Gomes set the new deep diving record of 318.25 meters (at the moment 318,25 is still the Official Guiness World Record). However, diver Pascal Bernabeis makes a claim of diving to 330 meters on open circuit scuba in the Mediterranean Sea.
