How the **** could someone go deep enough for it to be scary with just a snorkel?

ASIANS CAN ACTUALLY READ MINDS!!!!!!!!!!!
They can hear, and see what you're visually thinking. This is the absolute complete truth!!!!!

Asians hide their mind reading abilities by a lot of them having completely expressionless faces so they don't accidentally show facial expressions when people think things they don't like, find funny, astonishing, etc, and Asians segregate so their not nearly as susceptible to that happening.
Asians also segregate, and are untalkative to avoid accidentally saying things that are similar to what people are thinking and going to say.

Try thinking, and visually picturing things that are as wild as you can when you are around Asians, and look for Asians who give people dirty/particular looks for what appears to be for completely no reason.

PLEASE SPREAD THE MESSAGE!!!!! THE WORLD NEEDS TO FIND THIS OUT!!!!!

I snorkel. The only time it get's scary is in darker or more "polluted" waters where you cannot see your hand in your face let alone that mushroom cloud of sharks coming toward you to check out the shiny stuff on you. (If you are stupid enough to wear shiny stuff).

Other time is if you are a dumbass and go when it is dark out. lol

You've clearly never gone diving, or you suck at it, ive gotten to 9m deep with snorkel, there is a special snorkel with a 500ML air tank so you have a 20 sec air supply

I said snorkel, not scuba gear. And you'd implode from the pressure by the time it got scary.

actually the human body can go extremely deep without any gear, your lungs squeeze to the size of a fist and it becomes quite painful but it is possible, there is a sport called free diving where the diver holds onto a sled that drags them down 200+ meters (record breaking numbers) and they release an airbag that makes them ascend to the surface. Quite impressive.

So you can breathe for 20 seconds and then gotta fill it.
Must suck.

In the Caymen islands there is a huge drop off where it goes from like 4 feet deep to hundreds of feet deep. It looks like a huge cliff, but its under water and its really dark and creepy.

Even when you're looking down from the surface, you go past a reef which is just 1 meter below the surface and then suddenly you find yourself looking at a 10+ meter dip. It can be a scary experience at first.

If you dive around reefs, you get this sudden transition from shallow waters to "bottomless abyss". It's really ******* scary :P

I can imagine it being quite scary just swimming above this dark abyss. not knowing what's watching you from below would terrify me.

Go practice snorkeling ^^
Its possible to reach deeps of 125-126m without any equipment. However we're going to leave that to the pros. Judging from the angle of light I'd say this picture is taken at least 20m underneath the ocean surface.

there's no way to know how deep that picture is. "angle of the light" has nothing to do with anything, and how dark it gets depends on current vis, water density (fresh or salt) etc.

You don't need to go deep at all. Just swim on the surface and look down with a mask. The moment you swim over the edge is really exciting and after that it's ******* terrifying.

src: was on vacation at the red sea (sharm el sheik), riff was only like 5 meters below surface and on the edge it dropped for several hundreds of meters.

I don't know from experience, but according to my Dive Master (the guy that taught me how to scuba dive) it is possible to make it to the surface on one breath of air from 80 feet, so I suppose it should be possible to go down deep from the surface.

The deeper you go underwater, the more water pressure there is exerted on you. This causes your body, and organs, to get compacted. The reason you can go from 80 feet to the surface in one breath is because as you go upwards, the water pressure exerted on your body is lessened, which allows your organs to "grow back" to their original size. Effectively, this makes your lungs, and the air inside them, larger the closer you get to the surface. It's a neat little fact.

i don't know how deep that is, but I freedive down to at least 60 feet in freshwater, and it can get cold and scary. really the water gets much colder after about 15 feet.

I've been pretty damn deep, but with scuba gear. It's not that cold, and the scariest things are close to the ocean floor.

You're telling me you've held your breath long enough to go 60 feet down, equalizing all the way down? AND swim back up at a slow enough pace not to **** yourself up? That's like 5-10 minutes of being underwater

in a word, yes. you swim really slow.

To cover decompression sickness: I've never actually done proper research into it, but i believe freedivers dont have much to worry about due to no additional air being intoduced into your system. it all compresses/decompresses at the same rate as you go down and up. I could be wrong about all that, but in any case its not an issue.

Doesnt the pressure just **** your ears up? I swam to the bottom of a 6 metre deep pool (Roughly 19 feet i think for you Americans) and my ears felt like they were gonna pop.

you have to equalize the pressure in your inner ear. Shut your mouth, hold your nose, and blow

my friend went spear fishing, he forgot to release the pressure in his goggles, and he ended popping a blood vessel above his eye, however, he's fine now

Your friends goggles were too tight then and he should be using nose covering goggles which pressurize easily through your nose and lungs.
If your friend goes spear fishing a lot he's an idiot if he doesn't know this.

No, he is an idiot and he did not know what to do. You shouldn't have to "release the pressure" in goggles.

you need to be careful, because you will "pop" your ears if you don't equalize the pressure on the way down. do this by shutting your mouth, holding your nose, and blowing. you should be forcing air up into your ear canal, or eardrum, or something. you can do it now at atmospheric pressure, but its not quite so pronounced. I happen to find a video this evening I will share with you that indirectly has a great example of this in it. You can see the man reach up to grab his nose, then hear the pressure build up in his ears. He does this like 6 times on his descent.

Also, the air sort of takes care of itself on the return trip.

the trick is to pop them every 15 feet or so to adjust to the pressure. if you don't and go deep enough, you'll pop your eardrums, which can lead to all kinds of problems.

Video's Description

FREE FALL: World champion freediver Guillaume Nery special dive at Dean's Blue Hole, the deepest blue hole in the world filmed entirely on breath hold by the french champion Julie Gautier. This video is a FICTION and an ARTISTIC PROJECT. Edited by BLUENERY (c). Music: ARCHIVE - you make me feel.

I believe that the video is mostly legitimate(it says that man is a world champion freediver), but probably not the best to illustrate OP's message. here's a video of the 101m world record instead.

and by the way, i believe most freedivers go down faster by hyperoxygenating their bloodstream, then sinking without air in their lungs.
