On July 26, in the waters of Hurghada, organisers aim to gather 3,000 divers underwater at the same time. The event is organised by the Egyptian Divers Syndicate in collaboration with the Hurghada Protection and Conservation Association (HEPCA).

“We were looking for a site that would be able to accommodate such a large number of divers taking part in the venture without having a negative impact on the environment. This is how the new port of Hurghada was selected”. – say HEPCA representatives

“The bottom of the site is a sandy hill, at a depth of 12-13m, which is capable of hosting 3,000 divers, with virtually no marine life there, but a whole lot of rubbish.”

“This is also another reason why we decided on this location. The event we are organising is not only to be the immersion of a record number of people, but also the biggest water clean-up action.”

Local dive centres and travel agents have been asked to support and promote the event as much as possible. This will boost local tourism and promote the region to the world, while also raising environmental awareness.

Individual diving enthusiasts are also welcome, and the minimum diving qualification required is an OWD – “If you want to play your part in beating this amazing record and cleaning up the marina, start looking for your next flights to Egypt now, we will be happy to see you here in July” – HEPCA activists agree

The Egyptian attempt, will take place before the British one, which has been announced for September. The current record was set in 2009 in Indonesia, with 2486 divers taking part.
