Deep Dive Blue Hole to 202.5 msw by Ben Reymenants
A quick look back to Ben his diving career. This picture was posted on Facebook by one of his friends. We would like to share this picture with you. Unfortunately we only have one side of this page. If someone has more of this article, please send this to us.
Ben was an instructor in Egypt for around 4 years. This Blue Hole deep dive he did when he was 26 years of age, 22 years ago.
During this NEW RECORD deep dive Blue Hole Egypt his buddy Leigh Cunnigham was there to support him together with a group of other support divers. The dive was held in the BLUE HOLE in Dahab. This is called the “deadliest dive site int he world”. Many divers on a single tank or even tech divers get drawn into the deep and get nitrogen narcosis and before they know it, fall a sleep while falling into the deepness of the Blue Hole. This is why good and professional Technical diving training is mandatory if you want to go to dive sites like these. The water is so clear that most divers forget about their tank pressure and to look at their dive computers while down there. The visibility is so amazing, it bring drivers to a literal “it takes your breath away” state of mind.
Blue Hole is a diving location on east Sinai, a few kilometres north of Dahab, Egypt on the coast of the Red Sea.
Ben still does deep diving. In 2006 he did his deepest dive to 249 meters in Thailand. In the last few years he tries to explore the lake of Song Hong more and found the traverse in Sra Keow (where he did the 249 meter dive) at 200 meters this year.
