Pascal Bernabe, has started its activity mainly by diving cave diving as advanced diver, and has to his credit a lot of dive record, as sump diver or firstimer diver.

He did at least 250m deep at la fontaine de Vaucluse to try to find the ROV lost at a deep depth.

We even called on him to get two lost ROV down to 174m at la Fontaine du Vaucluse, twice! .

  1. The first open circuit scuba dive ever to go beyond 300 metres or 1,000 feet. The following article, published in 2003, relates the story of John’s brave, groundbreaking achievement. We are proud that John put his faith in our equipment for such a momentous dive and proud to still relate his story on our web site. ….. »Long regarded as the four-minute mile of open circuit scuba diving the depth of 305m (or 1,000 feet) marks the goal of those in the deep diving community striving to go deeper than anyone before. These divers fall into their own category for although many divers have been deeper before (in fact those that use submersible bells, surface supplied gas and other commercial rigs regularly dive and work at deeper depths) those on open circuit face infinitely greater risks; it’s no exaggeration to say that they are working at the very limits of physiological knowledge.In the world of open circuit many world record depth attempts are made in fresh water sink holes. The relatively ‘ideal’ conditions of these environments make the staging of tanks and logistics that much easier than those who face the more uncertain conditions of open waters. Unpredictable currents, surface conditions and a massive difference in surface and bottom temperatures are just some of the environmental factors taken into consideration.

  2. Two British technical divers have broken the world record for the deepest wreck dive at 205m in the Egyptian Red Sea in December. Leigh Cunningham and Mark Andrews descended to the stern of the Yolanda, a wreck they recently discovered on a shelf south of Yolanda Reef in Ras Mohamed National Park.

  3. The world record dive was the 41-year-old’s fifth attempt at breaking the open circuit deep diving record, which he spent three years preparing for. Dive manufacturer Ralf Tech sponsored the event, which involved a dive support team of thirty team members and 12 support divers.
