Ahmed Gabr Ready To Break More Guinness World Records

Ahmed Gabr already has a Guinness World Record, and with all of our help he will soon secure another accolade. Guinness accepted his challenge for the World’s Biggest Clean-Up Dive in Hurghada from 4th to 6th of June, 2015 and Gabr is looking for everybody’s support. The vision is to have over 400 divers clean up the Red Sea in 24 hours to contribute to all of our benefit. Clearly, we want to see this happening…

Gabr already holds the Guinness World Record for the deepest scuba dive on open circuit which he broke in September 2014 when he consumed 92 air tanks in thirteen hours on his journey 332m down off the coast of Dahab. Obviously this 42-year-old diving enthusiast is far from done though so the next record is already looming.

A crowd-funding page has been launched in which money is raised in pursuit of making this noble dream come true. 5% of all donations will go towards securing that the benefits of the clean-up are long-lasting by supporting conservation groups. Of course, there is also the necessity for 400 plus divers which is the essential part of the record-breaking. Are you a diver? Do you want to be awesome? Sounds like a chance, doesn’t it? Ahmed Gabr can’t do this one by himself despite his 20 years of diving experience. Our fingers are crossed… for all our sakes!
