332.35 m (1,090 ft) – Ahmed Gabr (Egypt), Dahab, Egypt, September 18, 2014. Time to descend to 335 m (1,100 ft) was 14 minutes but the actual depth was adjusted to 332.35 m (1,090 ft) due to a bend in the line caused by current. Time to ascend was 13 hours 36 minutes, including 7 hours from 27 m (89 ft) to the surface, for a total duration of 13 hours 50 minutes. The planned depth was actually 350 m (1,148 ft) but Gabr stopped at 335 m due to the effects of high-pressure nervous syndrome (HPNS). The dive, which began at 10:30 am on September 18, 2014, and ended at 12:20 am on September 19, required 92 tanks filled with various breathing gases including air and different mixes of nitrogen, oxygen and helium (Trimix).
