Two World Records Set in Nassau, Bahamas at Stuart Cove’s Dive Bahamas

Stuart Cove’s Dive Bahamas has announced that two new world records were established early March in the waters off of Nassau, Bahamas: Ms Reem Aleidan set the Longest Underwater Dive with Sharks by a Woman (5 hours); Mr Mubarak Abuhaimad set the Longest Underwater Dive with Sharks by a Man (7 hours 49 min).

Both scuba divers from Kuwaiti have set two new global dive records in an attempt to raise awareness for women’s rights and the plight of Arab women in the Middle East. Ms. Reem comments “[…] I am hoping by holding this event in the Western world we can bring media attention to the plight of women like me in the Middle East and any other countries around the world where women are repressed and not allowed to express themselves like men can in many activities, like scuba diving.”
