It also feels the same 100 feet below the surface of the ocean.

I am curious about the depth to which any human can dive, J Pouch or not.  I was reading about that amphibious assault vehicle accident that killed 8 marines in California and it said that AAV had sunk to a depth of several hundred feet, which was too deep for divers to access the wreckage.  Is 100 feet about the max depth divers can go down?

Recreational diving has a maximum depth of 120-130 feet. This is often reduced to 100 feet for practical reasons. People can go much deeper without a submersible, but elaborate measures are required: extra tanks, complex mixes of gases, and lots of decompression time on the way back up. It’s expensive and dark.
