We are getting reports that Dr Guy Garman (aka Doc Deep), who was attempting to break the World Record for deepest dive, has failed to surface.
The dive with Scuba Tec in St Croix was planned for 1200 feet (365m) and was aiming to break the world record set by Ahmed Gabr of 332.4m.

A statement on the Scuba Tec Facebook page said “Our dive team (including his son) accompanied him to 200′ then watched his descent from there. 38 minutes later when he should have been hooking up with our Deep Diver Support team at 360′ he just wasn’t there”
Dr Garman had been diving for 4 years and had a total of 595 dives of which 200 were beyond 60m and 35 to beyond 150m. His previous deepest dive was 246m in April 2015.
Our thoughts are with family and friends at this time.
