Most People Scuba Diving at Once

The Indonesian Navy organized an event at Malalayang beach in Manado, Indonesia in August of 2009 that brought together 2,486 divers to dive simultaneously and set a new Guinness World Record for the most people scuba diving at once.

Divers were divided into 50 groups and had to wait in long lines before they could descend to the target depth of about 15 meters/49 feet. The participants more than doubled the previous record, set in the Maldives in 2006, when 958 divers took part in a massive group dive.
