Death And Diving: Dahab’s Blue Hole…

October 6, 2005

I’m off on another reporting trip, and I’m not sure when I will be back (probably on the 17th). So I thought I would live you with something very cool, a great dive video which features a site in the Red Sea–the Blue Hole–which is famous for it’s spectacular diving, and the number of dead divers who got suckered too deep by the beauty and exhilaration of the place. The video was given to me by the record-breaking South African, Nuno Gomes (check out his very cool website here). This past June at Dahab Nuno dove to a world record depth of 318.25 meters (which is more than ONE THOUSAND FEET DEEP). Unbelievable. Anyhow, this video is a good one. And if you decide you have to go dive it yourself (here’s another good site), then Planet Divers are the people to hook up with…

    Awesome video – really makes you want to dive the blue hole.
    That dive site really is an accident black-spot though and completely necessary – people really should stick within the limits of their training and experience, and if they’re not capable of doing so, should be allowed to dive the blue hole….

    Great video – thanks for posting it. I think a thousand feet might be a little bit deep for me though!
