A total of 386 people gathered underwater around the pier ar Deerfield Beach, Florida, beating the previous record of 353 people, set by Australian divers in Victoria in December 2017.

The event was hosted by local operator Dixie Divers as part of its 13th annual beach clean-up event. The dive centre had set a previous record of a 240-diver long human chain at the same event in 2017.

Highlights of the world record-breaking dive, including the beach clean and night dive, are in Dixie Divers' owner Arilton Pavan's YouTube video below.
