Record Number of Scuba Dives Per Person

by Dave

Hi,


I would like to know what the record number of scuba dives is for one person?

A friend of mine says he's done 5328 dives in 4 years at 2 months per year !! I think he's full of bull!!

He's shown me his SSI dive certs but they are from the Philippines so he's probably filled them in himself!!

Thanks.

Hi Dave,

Interesting question and situation with your friend. If I am reading your question right, your friend did all these dives over a period of 8 months (4 years and diving 2 months per year).

The math shows that this would equate to 666 dives per month or about 22 dives per day.

Let's just say this is not feasible (unless of course, you do an extremely short dive which is not what the intent is here I assume).

So yes, I agree with you that your friend is putting you on.

I do not know the record number of dives (a real dive that is) for one person. I have never seen such a statistic. It would have to be very high though. If any one could shed any light on the subject, we would love to hear.

Tell your friend he owes you a drink.

However even at 50 months the diver would have to do over four dives per day with zero days off. This would be very hard to do even (but not impossible) for someone who works at a dive shop and takes divers out on a daily basis. My conclusion though is the same as yours he is full of bull!
