    283 meters (928.5 feet) on DualRebreateher in Dahab, Egypt.

    283 meters (928.5 feet) on DualRebreateher in Dahab, Egypt.
    November traditionally is a month when we are training deep dives. This time main reason is to prepare team and equipment for winter exploration of Hranicka Propast in Chech Republic.
    Last deep dive there I completed in 2000 reaching 180 meters on OC and I discovered huge further explorations possibilities. Just not on OCJ. This cave easily can surpass 300 meters and such depth presents new challenges for our team and equipment. Fortunately last few weeks spend in Egypt was able to prove that my DualRebreather is ready and several deep dives trained our team to work as one cohesive unit. Now we have somewhat clearer picture what can be expected on depths below 250 meters.
    Egypt is excellent training ground for deep diving. Warm Read Sea waters with easy access to deep sites (shore diving with no need to charter boats); friendly Planet Divers Dahab providing tanks, gases and logistics. In short: all we need to succeed.
    Day after day we were performing deeper and deeper dives. Any free time we were spending training emergency procedures. Finally on November 2nd last dive to depth of 283 meters (928.5 feet) with total run time of 9 hours.
    All dives were completed in Blue Hole, every time I was swimming there from The Bells on 100 meter depth using scooter lend by Polish divers from Olsztyn; thank you my friends!
    More details and video from this dive will be available soon on Krzysztof Starnawski
    Team:
    Krzysztof Starnawski - diver, Dual Rebreather HammerHead,
    Irena Stangierska - photo and support, sidemount Eques,
    Marek Klyta - support, rebreather Hammerhead,
    Grzegorz Rutkowski - support, rebreather HammerHead,
    I would like also say thanks to Wiesiek Zahor who joined us on last day and provided topside support for our team.

    WOW... Congrats to everyone involved in the event!

    Glad to see the HH in action on a dive like that.

    As we say here in the US.... You definately have a "big set of brass ones!"

    Safe Diving...
