Australian divers are claiming a world record for the deepest wreck dive, after diving what is thought to be the wreck of WW2 hospital ship the Centaur, in 175m.

Simon Mitchell and Trevor Jackson successfully completed the dive off Bulwer, near Brisbane. The pair were both using closed circuit rebreathers, one Inspiration and one Biomarine Mk 15.5, and initially landed on the seabed some 20m away from the wreck. With only minutes of bottom time at the extreme depth, they swam over to the hull and examined debris close to the wreck, but were unable to make a positive identification. The dive took place on 14 May.

The previous unofficial record was held by Mark Ellyat after his 167m dive on the Baden.Australian's Dive Deeper
