The deepest no-limit freedive (male) is 253 m (830 ft) and was achieved by Herbert Nitsch (Austria), in Santorini, Greece, on 6 June 2012.
Nitsch achieved the incredible dive on a project called 'Extreme 800', after the dive he experienced severe decompression sickness and later reflected that 'I should have postponed the dive, prepare better and let the weather settle, before deciding to go for it.'
