Welcome to the World’s Longest Scuba Dive Website
In 2009, Declan Devane set the first Guinness World Record for the “Longest Cold Salt-Water Scubadive” (open sea) and in doing so both he and the team raised over €35,000 for two children’s cancer charities.
Declan set a time of 11hrs and 42mins without surfacing and without toilet breaks (unless that wasn’t water in his suit!).
In February of this year, 2012, a Maltese team broke this record, after their second attempt, by less than 1 hour.
This October 9th, Paul Devane (Declan’s ‘younger’ brother) will attempt to reclaim the record in aid of two important charities:
1. Hand in Hand (http://www.handinhand.ie/), the children’s cancer charity, a non-profit organisation that provides the families of children with cancer with much-needed practical support.
2. The RNLI (http://www.RNLI.ie/), the charity that saves lives at sea and which operates in both the U.K. and Republic of Ireland.
