The most popular scuba diving course is the PADI Open Water Diver. 130 ft (39.6 m) below the surface is considered to be the safe limit for divers for recreational activities. The world record of the deepest dive of 1090 ft (332.2 m) underwater was made by a 41-year-old Egyptian man named Ahmed Gabr. Even though Scuba Diving is considered as a risk sport, according to DAN, the fatality happens only once every 211864 dives.
Jacques-Yves Cousteau was not only the inventor of Scuba Diving the way we do it nowadays but also one of the oldest divers in history. He was still diving at the age of 86.
