While walking the floor of the Blue Wild Ocean Adventure Expo in Fort Lauderdale, Florida this weekend, DeeperBlue.com learned that there will be a new attempt at smashing the World Record for the Longest Underwater Human Chain this coming June.

According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the current record for the longest human chain underwater stands at 308 people, set in May 2017 by a group of divers in Italy.

Organizers in the USA think they can beat that, and are actively recruiting 400 divers to take part in an attempt on June 16th, 2018 off Deerfield Beach, Florida.

The US$20 (~16 Euros) event fee includes:

“Special event Moisture Wicking Long Sleeve UV Shirt, certificate of World Record Attempt Participation and a small gift bag from some of the scuba diving industry vendors.”

Non-divers are encouraged to get involved as volunteers or to take a PADI Open Water Diver course prior to the event to join in the underwater activities.

Also taking place that day will be the 15th Annual Deerfield Beach Pier Cleanup.

If you’re interested in participating in the World Record attempt, you’re highly encouraged to register for the event here.
