Freediving – no limit (men)
Herbert Nitsch
214 metre(s)
Greece (Spetses)

The deepest no-limit freedive by a male is 214 m (702 ft 1.18 in), by Herbert Nitsch (Austria) in Spetses, Greece, on 14 June 2007.

Widely considered to be the most dangerous form of freediving, no-limits practitioners can descend and ascend using the method of their choosing. Many divers use a bar or sled fixed to a line to take them down, while returning with the aid of gas balloons.
