Professor Joseph Dituri, also known as ‘Dr. Deep Sea,’ has gained widespread recognition for his record-breaking achievement of living underwater without depressurization for an extended period.
Located at a scuba divers’ lodge in the Florida Keys, Dr. Dituri spent an astounding 73 days in an underwater habitat. In an Instagram post on Sunday, the US Navy veteran announced his plans to spend a total of 100 days submerged below the sea’s surface in the pursuit of scientific exploration.
Despite retiring from the Navy after 28 years of active service, Dr. Dituri’s passion for discovery and adventure continues to drive him forward.
As we delve into his personal life, one question that arises is whether Dr. Deep Sea is married and who his wife might be.
