Deepest dive in the world in one breath
On a single breath of air, Guillaume Néry explores the deepest pool in the world in Italy: Y40. The action is filmed on breath hold by his wife Julie Gautier. Y-40 "The Deep Joy" pool first opened on 5 June 2014 and was designed by architect Emanuele Boaretto. It is 40 metres (131 ft) deep, making it the deepest pool in the world. It contains 4,300 cubic metres (1,136,000 US gal) of thermal water kept at a temperature of 32–34 °C (90–93 °F). Follow me on instagram https://www.instagram.com/awesomepeopleawezo/
Freediver Breaks World Record For Deepest Dive, Reaching Over 350ft
ID: 1483000 This incredible world record attempt saw a dedicated freediver reach the staggering depth of 107 METERS (351 FEET) - more than the length of a football field. Reaching a depth that no woman in the sport had hit before, Alessia Zecchini held breath for more than three-and-a-half minutes in order to complete the remarkable feat. In the footage, relaxed Alessia, from Rome, Italy, can be seen calmly swimming to the base of the 107-meter rope as support divers surround her. In the medium she competes in - constant weight apnea - freedivers descend and ascend using fins or a monofin, and they are allowed to use their arms without pulling on the rope or changing their ballast. **Please contact [email protected] for media / licensing / broadcast usage** SUBMIT A VIDEO: https://bit.ly/2HWQ0mD Connect with Caters: Twitter: https://twitter.com/Caters_News Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/CatersTV Website: https://www.catersnews.com Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/caters_news/ Company Information: Caters Clips is owned and operated by Caters News Agency Ltd, an international multimedia content provider.

Man Takes ONE Long Breath Before Diving Into Ocean. See How Deep He Swam Before Running Out Of Air.
How Deep Can Humans Swim In The Ocean And LIVE? Subscribe for more amazing videos! ► http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-Richest ◄ How deep can a human being dive in the ocean? It seems like there should be a clear-cut answer. After all, the human body has its limits. We know that we don’t do very well when we’re lit on fire, are without oxygen for long periods of time, or are exposed to the vacuum of space. But when it comes to how deep the human body can survive underwater in full diving gear, the answer is less clear. And that’s because too much pressure is a little more complex than too little pressure. In this video, we’ll cover why that is, how divers mitigate the biggest risks to their survival underwater, and what we know about the theoretical limits of human diving depth—based on what’s been tried so far. Tell us what you think in the comments, especially if you’re a diver! Also, don’t forget to like, subscribe, and ring that bell so that you never miss a video from TheRichest.

Crazy DANGERS Of Deep Sea Diving
Of course, there are a ton of reasons to go for an adventure far under the surface of the ocean, but do you know all of the potential risks that accompany each and every dive? If you didn’t, here they are, these are the 15 Dangers Of Deep Sea Diving. #7 - Nitrogen Narcosis Nitrogen Narcosis is yet another serious issue divers need to be aware of. When the human body gets too much nitrogen in their system, it creates a kind of narcotic effect. It would feel like the nitrous-oxide gas given to you at the dentist’s office. While you might enjoy that woozy feeling when you’re inside a dentist’s office on dry land, this is not a feeling you would want to experience when you are far under water. Nitrogen narcosis damages both sensory perception and judgment making each decision the affected diver makes a potentially dire one. #6 - Gaps In Actual Experience If you are an experienced diver, you know that there is a rule that states you have to take a refresher course every six months that you haven’t been actively diving. Although you, being a diver, might laugh because you believe that the course really isn’t all that big of a deal, it really is very important. After not diving for just a few months, some of the very minor but incredibly important and vital details of the preparation or procedure of diving could be forgotten. Depending on which part you forget, that tiny sliver of information might just cost you your life. Just take the refresher course to get back in the loop. #5 - Losing Your “Buddy” It might seem silly but the “Buddy System” is really important when it comes to dives and swimming out in the ocean. If you have a buddy, there should always be at least one other person in the water that is concerned with your safety and survival. The ocean is not a place to lose your buddy. #4 - “The Bends” Decompression sickness is most often referred to as “the bends” and it is caused by increased pressure which makes the tissues in a body absorb more nitrogen. When that fierce pressure is suddenly reduced, the extra nitrogen can form tiny nitrogen bubbles that can kill. When deep sea divers want to return to the ocean’s surface, they must do so in distinct stages that are carefully monitored so that they can best control the rate of which the absorbed nitrogen is released. The bends can range from the affected having aching joints, a creepy skin rash, or paralysis and even possibly death. Do NOT go diving without being properly trained. It is not a hobby that you can just pick up an afternoon. #3 - Not Wearing Adequate Protection We aren’t just talking about wearing durable gloves while checking out a sunken shipwreck, although if you do get cut without wearing protective gloves, you can get tetanus, which doesn’t sound like fun. We’re talking about wearing gear that is suited to the climate and temperatures of the weather and the ocean you are diving into. When you are wearing a short wetsuit, don’t go play around in some coral where you can easily get cut up, which could lead to even more danger. Also, the temperature of the water gets colder the further down you get, so make sure you dress appropriately, it’s not like you can just put on a jacket once you’re underwater. #2 - Oxygen Toxicity Oxygen toxicity happens only when the person is deep sea diving and goes more than 135 feet below the surface. Just like nitrogen, which caused a lot of problems for divers earlier, the body absorbs more oxygen when the body finds itself underneath increased water pressure. Experienced divers know how to deal with the increase of oxygen but as the pressure and depth increase, the body absorbs more and more oxygen and too much can become toxic. The symptoms start with tunnel vision and nausea and then switch to loss of consciousness and seizures. If either one of the last things happens while you’re underwater, you’re most likely never making it to the surface again. #1 - Mask Squeeze The woman in this picture looks like she is about to start bleeding from her eyeballs which is a rather frightening thing to see. However, she isn’t a lead role in an up and coming horror film, she’s suffering from a diver’s condition called “mask squeeze.” When the pressure of the air inside the mask isn’t equalized correctly, the outside pressure causes the scuba mask to be pushed on the diver’s face resulting in this scary painful look. The small blood vessels surrounding and in the eyes burst, which leads to the bloody eyeballs you see here. This is not the look she was going for, we’re sure of that.

Scuba Diving for Beginners - Understanding Atmospheres Underwater is Easy
Learning about atmospheres underwater is easy! This short motion graphic explains the basics of pressure, density and volume underwater while diving. Learn more about diving at: chrisbrockscuba.com Audio Script: Think about it. Your lungs are balloons. When you breathe in, your lungs inflate, and when you breath out, your lungs deflate. So what would happen if you held your breath while scuba diving? If you held your breath while descending, your lungs will become smaller – creating dense pressure inside your full lungs. If you held your breath as you ascended, the air in your lungs would increase in size under pressure. In either scenario, eventually your lungs would fail. This is why the number 1 rule of scuba diving is NEVER HOLD YOUR BREATH! So, you might be thinking – why does pressure change underwater? It’s simple. The deeper you dive, the higher atmosphere you’re in. When diving into a higher atmosphere, the volume of air spaces will get smaller, and the molecules in those spaces will become more compact. The term atmosphere is simply a unit to measure ambient pressure. Since water is denser than air, greater changes in ambient pressure occur underwater. Every 33 feet of depth adds another atmosphere to the ambient pressure. Once you understand atmospheres you can calculate your own air consumption at a given pressure, helping you plan your dives efficiently and accurately. As a recreational scuba diver, you are trained to dive safely between 1 and 5 atmospheres. At sea level you start your dive at 1 and as you descend deeper underwater, the pressure and density increases – and the volume decreases. This relationship between pressure, density and volume stays consistent as you dive. At 33 feet deep you’re at 2 atmospheres. At this depth, volume is 1/2 of what it was on the surface and the density is 2 times denser. This relationship continues as you dive deeper – all the way down to 132 feet where at 5 atmospheres the volume is 1/5 of what it was on the surface and the density is 5 times denser. Make sense? Think about it this way. If you had a balloon at the surface with a volume of 10 units, taking it down to 5 atmospheres, would reduce the balloon’s volume to 2 units – because at 132 feet, the volume of an object is 1/5 of what it was on the surface.

In a daring rescue, an elephant was pulled from the Indian Ocean after it was swept 10 miles out to sea by a strong current, authorities said. Sailors from the island nation of Sri Lanka spent 12 hours getting the beast out of the water. Elephants are known to be good swimmers but this one was exhausted by its ordeal, officials said. A diver tied a rope around the elephant's body and it was towed to shallow waters.

Many people don't realize that there are snakes that live in the ocean. And believe it or not, they're actually considerably more venomous than land snakes! Jonathan travels to Australia and the Philippines to find these marine reptiles, and learns why they are almost completely harmless to divers. This is an HD upload of a segment previously released in season 3. ********************************************************************** If you like Jonathan Bird's Blue World, don't forget to subscribe! You can join us on Facebook! https://www.facebook.com/BlueWorldTV Twitter https://twitter.com/BlueWorld_TV Instagram @blueworldtv Web: http://www.blueworldTV.com ********************************************************************** The sea snake is an animal surrounded in mystery—known for its incredibly powerful venom, but not much else. Just how dangerous are these marine reptiles? I have traveled to Queensland, Australia on a quest to learn about sea snakes. Here on Australia’s Great Barrier Reef, sea snakes are fairly common. Lets go see if we can find one. I hit the water, grab my camera and head towards the sea floor. Today I’m diving on a little seamount called a coral Bommie. It’s a mini-mountain of coral sticking up from the bottom, but not quite reaching the surface. Near the top of the Bommie, thousands of small fish feed on plankton passing by in the current, but they stay close to the reef, because they are being watched by a big school of jacks who are on the prowl for food themselves. The bommie is covered in healthy coral that provides lots of nooks and crannies for the fish to hide if they need cover. On the other side of the bommie, a large school of snappers are also looking for something to eat, and keeping a safe distance from the jacks. As I swim along at the base of the bommie, I’m keeping my eyes open for a snake-like animal. The coral looks healthy and a Spinecheek anemonefish gives me a quick glance from the safety of her host anemone. But I keep scanning the bottom and at last I have found my quarry: an olive sea snake, the most common species around the Great Barrier Reef. It’s swimming along the bottom doing the same thing everything else is doing—looking for food. The sea snake is closely related to a land snake, except it has adapted for life underwater. When a sea snake flicks its tongue, it’s getting rid of excess salt secreted by special glands in its mouth. Sea snakes live exclusively in the ocean, but since they’re reptiles, their kidneys can’t deal with too much excess salt in their blood. A sea snake gets around with a flattened section of tail that looks like an oar and serves as a fin. It looks just like an eel when it swims, undulating its body and getting propulsion from that flattened tail. Although sea snakes prefer to eat fish, eels and shrimp, these snappers aren’t at all afraid of the sea snake, because they are way too big for the sea snake to bite. This snake is heading for the surface to grab a breath of air. A sea snake, just like a land snake, has lungs and must breathe air to survive. It can hold its breath up to 3 hours during a dive. Recent research has shown that some sea snakes also can absorb a little bit of oxygen directly from the water through their skin, which is probably why a breath can last so long. After spending a minute at the surface breathing, the sea snake comes back down to the bottom. It’s poking around, looking for holes where it might corner a fish or shrimp. It sticks its head into the holes, hoping to get lucky. The sea snake is most closely related to the Cobra on land, and its venom is quite similar to cobra venom, but considerably more potent. If it manages to grab a fish, the venom will kill it in seconds. Sea snakes quite often take a rest on the bottom, sleeping as they hold their breath. I use the opportunity to sneak up on one. In spite of their fearsome venom, sea snakes are very timid and not particularly aggressive. Although this one is obviously not thrilled about being picked up, it doesn’t try to bite me. And when I let go, it just swims away. I find another one and can’t resist the opportunity to show the flattened tail section. Swim, be free! Although the sea snake is one of the most venomous animals in the world, you’re not very likely to be bitten by one. There are 62 known species of sea snakes and they live all around the tropical Indo-Pacific. I found this banded sea snake in the Philippines. They like nice warm tropical water because they are cold-blooded, like all reptiles. If the water gets too cold, they get lethargic. So, no matter what you might think of snakes, sea snakes are timid and shy animals that represent almost no threat at all to people, even though they produce some of the most powerful venom in the world.

"This is why I free dive": A journey into the deep | William Trubridge | TEDxChristchurch
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to hold your breath for minutes on end, descending 300 feet and more under water? In this extraordinary talk -- part meditation, part heart-stopping adventure -- world champion freediver William Trubridge not only takes you there, but offers a profound answer to the question: "Why do you do it?" In 2005 William was the first freediver to dive at Dean's Blue Hole, now recognised as the world's premier freediving venue and site of the annual Vertical Blue event. There he broke his first world record in the discipline of CNF (Constant Weight No Fins) in April 2007, diving to 81m. Since then he has broken this record multiple times. In 2010 he became the first human to descend to 100m (330 feet) during Project Hector, an event aimed at bringing awareness to the plight of New Zealand's critically endangered Hector's and Maui's Dolphins species. In July 2016 he furthered this record to 102m (334 feet) as part of the Steinlager "Born to Defy" project, which was broadcast live to New Zealand television. William also holds the world record in Free Immersion, with 124m (406 feet), set at Vertical Blue in May 2016. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx

“A whole new world is opening up. A world beneath the sea.” Those are the opening words of the United States Navy film, “World of the Sea.” The 1973 documentary that takes the viewer beneath the waves as the narrator explains how the Navy must perform essential support maneuvers underwater, whether it be in submarines or by using divers for missions such as salvage and repair, underwater construction, study of acoustics, or scientific research. Amidst scenes of divers in the ocean as well as in specialized tanks, the narrator explains at mark 02:50 how divers need pressurized air to breath in deeper depths, and at mark 03:25 we see an animated explanation of how a body is decompressed. The Navy trains divers in a specially constructed ocean simulations facility, shown starting at mark 04:25. At 4:27, Capt. George S. Bond discusses the Ocean Simulations Facility. (Capt. George Foote Bond USN was an American physician who was known as a leader in the field of undersea and hyperbaric medicine and the "Father of Saturation Diving) The research device is capable of simulating ocean depths of more than 2,000 feet, and at mark 06:15 we watch as a diver is exposed to pressure equal to 1,025 feet and later 1,200 feet. Following the discussion of medical issues in dives, the film switches to engineering concerns starting at mark 07:25, as we watch scenes of naval engineers test the Mark X breathing device, and divers became “swimming laboratories.” Deep Diving Systems are discussed starting at mark 10:55, with scenes of the Mark I and Mark II deep dive systems, which were put into use in the mid-1960s, as well as a personnel diving capsule. At mark 17:05 a navy captain praises advancements made in deep dive systems, and pledges to continue to dive deeper “and seek the limits of human endurance.” Meanwhile, the navy is working to enhance underwater communication, the narrator explains at mark 18:45. Because divers in submersibles are breathing a helium-oxygen gas mixture, their voices can come across as garbled. At mark 19:11, sailors are shown working on “unscramblers” to solve the problem. The film continues as we watch divers continue to work underground and study potential environment issues. At mark 22:00, we’re told how some of the pressurization techniques used by the Navy also have had practical uses in the civilian medical community. This Deep Diving System shown in the film was built in 1968 to provide a surface habitat for saturation divers returning from great depths. Divers are sealed in the habitat and become compressed to the same depth at which they will be working. After their bodies have become saturated the divers will move from the surface to the working depth and return in the diving bell commonly called a Personnel Transfer Capsule or PTC. Always maintaining the same pressure, work continues on a 24-hour schedule with divers working and resting alternately for 2 to 3 weeks before decompressing to surface pressure.

Scuba diving attempted murder? Diver Rene Umberger's air ripped from her mouth 50ft underwater
FULL VIDEO HERE: http://us.tomonews.net/why-did-someone-rip-this-scuba-diver-rsquo-s-air-supply-from-her-mouth-50-feet-underwater-86848030416896 Check out our official website: http://us.tomonews.net/ Check out our Android app: http://goo.gl/PtT6VD Check out our iOS app: http://bit.ly/1gO3z1f ----------------------------------------­----------------------------------------­---------------- In a video filmed on May 8 by conservationist Rene Umberger off the coast of Kona, Hawaii, two men can be seen collecting fish. When they spot her, one of the men suddenly attacks Umberger and rips her air supply out of her mouth. Umberger was swimming at a depth of 50 feet and documenting the state of the reef. The two men were collecting reef fish, which is legal under certain circumstances, but when one of the men darted over to Umberger from a great distance and ripped out her regulator, Umberger says it amounted to attempted murder. Although some divers have a spare regulator to use in case one breaks, many dive without a spare to reduce bulk. For example, the attacker did not have a spare, meaning that if somebody attacked him in the same way, it could be fatal. At 50 feet deep, it's not impossible to swim to the surface on one breath, but if the diver has been deep under water for a long time the expansion of accumulated nitrogen in her blood could cause her to suffer "the bends" with possible symptoms ranging from pain to death. Without knowing Umberger's experience level or how long she had already been under water, there was no way the attacker could have safely deprived her of air. Luckily, Umberger is an experienced diver. She remained calm and was able to put her regulator back in after not breathing for 30 seconds. Incredibly, the state investigator told Umberger her attacker would be charged, but so would she, for harassment. Umberger is known in Hawaii for her years of advocacy against aquarium fish collection, even where the state has legalized the practice. This has put her at odds with local fishermen who rely on the aquarium industry for a living. ----------------------------------------­----------------------------------------­---------------- Welcome to TomoNews, where we animate the most entertaining news on the internets.

Deep Ocean: Lost World Of The Pacific Part 2 - David Attenborough Documentary HD
An underwater adventure in search of living fossils. The island of New Guinea in the Pacific Ocean sits on the equator, where immediately next to a richly-colored coral reef, a sharp underwater cliff drops down to 1,000 meters. A long-awaited exploration down the little known depths of this tropical sea is finally about to start. NHK has teamed up with eminent marine biologist Mark Erdmann, discoverer of the coelacanth in Indonesia. The spherical transparent submarine, which successfully captured the world’s first moving images of a giant squid in its natural habitat, is used as the team encounters true living fossil species one after another. During their last dive, in the darkest depths of caves in the deep-sea cliff, the crew encounters a huge, unknown exotic fish… Narrated by Sir David Attenborough. For this shoot, the submarine was equipped with a cutting-edge 4K camera, for pristine images. Join the film crew on an exciting adventure into a deep sea never before seen by humans, captured on six cameras shooting multi-angles, creating a breath-taking underwater documentary. Part 2: Lights in the Abyss The NHK team that captured the world’s first footage of a live giant squid in its natural habitat is setting out for another deep-sea adventure. They will give us a look at the amazing life forms with luminous bodies that have survived the harsh, pitch-dark deep sea environment of the Pacific.

Inspecting and testing the Standard deep sea diving dress. The standard diving dress can be used up to depths of 600 feet (180 m) of sea water. Air or other breathing gas may be supplied from hand pumps or compressors, generally through a hose from the surface. A full diving dress can weigh over 80 Kilograms (176 Pounds). About the diving suits: A diving suit is a garment or device designed to protect a diver from the underwater environment. A diving suit may also incorporate a breathing gas supply (i.e. Standard diving dress or atmospheric diving suit), but in most cases applies only to the environmental protective covering worn by the diver. The breathing gas supply is usually referred to separately. There is no generic term for the combination of suit and breathing apparatus alone. It is generally referred to as diving equipment or dive gear along with any other equipment necessary for the dive. A standard diving dress consists of a metallic (copper and brass or bronze) diving helmet, an airline or hose from a surface supplied diving air pump, a canvas diving suit, diving knife and weighted boots. An important part of the equipment is the lead weights, generally on the chest, back and shoes, to counteract the buoyancy of the helmet and diving suit. This type of diving equipment is also known as hard-hat or copper hat equipment, or heavy gear. Leading British manufacturers were Siebe Gorman and Heinke. In the United States, the dominant makers were DESCO, Morse, Miller-Dunn and Schräder and it is sometimes known as a "Diver Dan" outfit, from the television show of the same name. It was commonly used for underwater civil engineering, commercial diving, pearl shell diving and naval diving. Modern diving helmets are made of stainless steel, fiberglass, or other strong and lightweight material. The copper helmets and standard diving dress are still widely used worldwide, but have largely been superseded by lighter and more comfortable equipment.

Located in the middle of the so-called coral triangle, the diversity of species and colors of Indonesian reefs absolutely amazes me every time I get the chance to dive here. This time however, it’s not the reefs I have come to film, but a remote and uninhabited island whose waters are reputed to teem with thousands of sea snakes! The island, known as Manuk, is an active volcano a hundred kilometers from the nearest inhabited island, smack dab in the middle of the Indonesian archipelago. Getting there is no easy task. I have chartered the Seahorse, a traditional Indonesian Pinisi built for divers, for a special itinerary to reach Manuk Island. Divemaster Jandri meets me at the marina in Sorong. It took me 2 full days of flying just to get to Sorong from the United States! He takes me out to the Seahorse, my home away from home for the next two weeks. This expedition will take 14 divers 1200 miles across the Banda Sea, from Sorong to Alor, stopping to dive along the way at many islands, the most important of which of course is Manuk. The island is aptly named: Manuk means “bird” in several Indonesian dialects. And birds it has! Manuk is completely uninhabited and there are a few reasons why. First of all, it’s kind of steep. But more importantly, it’s an active volcano! There are steam and sulfur vents all over the island. It swims casually by flapping its flattened, paddle-like section of tail. Sea snakes are among the most venomous animals on Earth. They use this venom to hunt, and fortunately, attacks on people are extremely rare. Soon I start to see other sea snakes, and I realize that more and more have been appearing. Were they here before and I didn’t see them, or did they come out from someplace? Clearly, some were sleeping. This one is taking a nap in plain view on the reef. I guess they don’t really have to worry about predators. I watch this one sleep for a little while, and start to wonder if it’s even alive. Pretty soon I notice that as the snakes are waking up, they are coming over to check me out. Like land snakes, this is how a sea snake “smells” but at the same time, the tongue flicking helps get rid of excess salt from glands in its mouth. Because sea snakes are reptiles just like land snakes, they have lungs and need to breathe air just like people. So a sea snake must head to the surface every once in a while for a breath. Sea snakes have a huge lung that takes up nearly the entire length of their bodies so they can hold a big breath that will last a while. Each time a sea snake surfaces, it usually spends a minute or two resting and breathing, before gulping in that last big breath and diving back down to the reef. A breath can last 1-2 hours depending on the species, but most sea snakes breathe more often than that unless they are sleeping. They can also absorb a little bit of oxygen from the water directly through their skin, which helps them extend their dives. The next morning I’m up at sunrise, and heading out to the reef for an early morning dive. Early morning is when the sea snakes hunt, and I’m hoping to witness the reef alive with sea snakes on the prowl! Underwater, the light levels are still low, and I’m heading out to a deep seamount where I saw a lot of sea snakes yesterday. This should be a good place to find some sea snakes hunting. When a sea snake hunts, it takes advantage of having a small head and a thin body to go from hole to hole in the reef, poking its head inside. It hopes to corner a fish or invertebrate that’s hiding in the hole. Once the hunting starts, more sea snakes start coming in to the reef to join the hunt. On this seamount more than a hundred feet from the surface, dozens of sea snakes are gathering to prowl the reef for food. Sometimes, they appear to work together to make sure nothing escapes.

Dying to dive. Search for serenity with world's top freedivers. Extended 52 min version
More films about diving: https://rtd.rt.com/tags/diving/ Freediving is a sport that involves swimming underwater without breathing apparatus. For those who do it though, it’s much more than that; it’s a life-long romance with the sea, a search for metaphysical enlightenment in the serene world beneath the waves, it’s a whole lifestyle. Russian freedivers have long been among the best, with numerous world records to their names. One major piece of freediving equipment, the monofin, was created in Russia. Freediving is a dangerous activity; despite many precautions, one mistake or accidental overestimation of your abilities can have serious consequences. Nevertheless, the mesmerising lure of the underwater world and the competitive spirit of freediving nearly always outweigh any thoughts about the risk. On August 2, 2015, Natalia Molchanova from Russia, acknowledged as one of the world’s best freedivers, disappeared off the Spanish coast. She was a celebrity in the freediving world, having broken more than 40 world records and set up her own school. For her, Freediving was a philosophy, a way of finding harmony with the world and now her legacy continues, partly with her students but most of all, in the achievements of her son, Aleksey.
