The longest underwater walk with one breath (male) is 107 metres (351ft 0.5in) achieved by Vitomir Maricic (Croatia), in Opatija, Primorsko-Goranska Zupanija, Croatia, on 17th September 2021.
Maričić, who is from the northern Adriatic city of Rijeka and is the holder of a number of world diving records, broke the record in Opatija.
”I collaborated with Thalassotherapiain in my earlier years on some of the most challenging expeditions related to Guinness Diving Records, during which Lidija Lijić and I attacked records in dives under ice and dives at extreme altitudes in the highlands of the Himalayas. I feel proud and privileged that I was chosen as the ambassador of such an institution through which a great number of top athletes go through and I believe that together we can move the boundaries even further and even better, and from that process we can learn,” said Marčić.
At the World Championships being held in Limassol (Cyprus), he won bronze in freediving with two fins. Reaching a depth of 111 meters, Maričić also set a new Croatian record. The gold went to the Russian Alexey Molchanov (115 meters-new world record).
