  1. Damn. So he’s in the water when it’s dark??? Nope, no thanks.

    It’s bad enough to think of being free floating in the open vastness of the ocean/sea but then for it to also be dark and be floating above a black abyss???? no…. no thank you.

  2. He didn’t ” dive deeper then any other person” Saturation divers have been deeper on a relatively regular basis. The deepest dive is close to double this depth.
