to go down to the 240ft where this is you would need professional hard hat divers experienced in deep dives, its not something you can do with regular scuba equipment

I think an experienced diver could push the certification another 10 meters, but yeah...not another 30-40 meters. You will need a hard suit for that. I know there were some a few years back that were good for up to 200 meters and this is only half of that. I am sure there are better ones now days. Though I am sure you need a lot of experience to go down in a hard suit that far as well...well, if you want to come back up anyway.

however, it sounds like these guys are at least mildly experienced when it comes to deep sea exploration. I think if they really wanted to they could be down there right now.

apparently you don't have the first clue about diving

the problem isn't the depth and pressure alone, its being able to breath while you're down there

in a free dive you're working without air so you don't have to worry about that

You come up to fast with equipment (not free diving) you'll get the bends. I am a diver, I know a fair amount of this stuff, the bends is where the nitrogen from the tank mixture bubbles out of your blood. Think of when you open a soda can and it bubbles up. Bad day lol

All the great technology available today, and we still have to look at crappy "sonar" pictures...

80 meters is about 250ft.

PADI deep water certification is only good for 130 feet. http://www.padi.com/scuba/padi-courses/diver-level-courses/view-all-padi-courses/deep-diver/default.aspx

The PHOTO was taken at 80M, the object is much deeper I think.

The "photo" is a sonar generated image that I guess you could say was technically taken from the surface of the water.

Yea I later found that the seafloor in that area is ~300 ft, so you're correct.
