Is it possible to swim to the very bottem of the ocean?

    The current world record is 214 meters, in a no-limit freediving competition.

    Thus the answer would be no, and there are multiple reasons for this, including increased pressure, oxygen poisoning, and hypothermia.

    No, you would die. Every 33 feet that you go down in the ocean, another 14.7 pounds per square inch push against your sides. If you went down past 3 or 4 atmospheres of pressure, you would begin to collapse in on yourself. You simply could not handle the pressure at the bottom of the ocean; on average it’s about 2 miles deep. That is why we have submarines; they can stand the pressure of the ocean.
