Longest active diver (Men)

Last updated: April 8, 2018 at 21:13 pm

Jean-Michel Cousteau (USA, France) made his first Aqua-Lung dive near Marseille (France) at the age of 7 in 1945. He has since led hundreds of expeditions all over the world for the Cousteau Society and Ocean Futures Society. Jean-Michel Cousteau was also a member of the world’s first scuba diving family.

“Soon, we were diving as a family. By 1945, we each had our own set of equipment, which had by now been greatly improved. I was barely seven; Philippe was four and a half. My father had reimagined himself as a manfish, and we quite naturally went along for the ride.” — Jean-Michel Cousteau | My Father, The Captain: My Life with Jacques Cousteau (2012)
