What's the deepest you've ever gone? How long can you hold your breath? Do you bring air with you? Do you take a gun or a spear? Do you have any spots you'd like to share, or do you want to keep them a secret? What happened on your most memorable dive? Have you encountered any rare or otherwise interesting sea creatures?

A buddy of mine actually found a neptune's trumpet a while back and donated it to the local aquarium. It's still there and I like to go and look at it. I like to freedive. I'm too poor to get SCUBA certified but it would open up a lot of career opportunities for me.

The deepest I've gone is 13 meters on a 1 minute breath hold.

It's actually very relaxing and I have heard no complaints from black out survivors. The airway clamps shut during a blackout so it's not really drowning, more like going into safe-mode and quietly waiting for asphyxiation, or for a friend to pull you up. One fellow said he was in a meadow right before his dive buddy convinced him to come back and start breathing again.

As for depth judgement, on my dives we bring a buoy and tether it to weight with a 15 meter line. The line has knots every 3 meters and we count them as the weight sinks, so it's like a very basic lead-line sounder. Once the depth is known then we just go based off of our own limits. I don't forget the depth in that spot especially since we revisit a lot of the same areas.

My favorite place to go is in caves. When I enter a cave, the current just dies, and it is just quiet and still. I feel the weight of the sea above me and the muscle memories from being pushed around outside. I think it's such a peaceful place.

Underwater funeral for a 98 year old U.S. navy diver. 8 meters. They did a WWII diver cosplay for him.

I'm not scared of oceans, just the sharks that swin in them

The white tips that hang out in the reefs are my friends and playmates. I found one sleeping in a cave once. And one time I encountered a whole family of sharks swimming around a reef. One time we were spearfishing at dusk, and a shark followed us all the way back to shore - trying to eat our catch, not us. They learn a lot about us just by being in the same body of water; they can sense our heart beats, the electricity flowing through our bodies. So when we're calm they notice and they chill out too.

So respect sharks but don't fear them because they know how you're feeling, and to them, fear makes you look more like food than not-food.

Deepest I've gone is 100 feet down on scuba checking out a shipwreck. Was very surreal to look up and see the surface look so far away and you're sitting there relaxed and breathing air.

I saw a really big unicorn fish. 3 feet long at least. And I found a flounder hiding in the sand.
