What is the deepest dive a human can do?
The deepest dive on record is 1,082 feet (332 meters) set by Ahmed Gabr in 2014. That depth is the equivalent to approximately 10 NBA basketball courts aligned vertically. In terms of pressure, that’s about 485 pounds per square inch. Most people’s lungs would be crushed at that depth.
First class divers could work 300 ft (91 m) depths while salvage and second class divers were qualified down to 150 ft (46 m).
