Life Story & Timeline


In 2013, Mestre’s life and career were chronicled in ESPN’s No Limits as part of their Nine for IX series.


In October 2002, Mestre died in an early attempt to break the 160 meters no-limits free-diving world record that Tanya Streeter had established a few weeks before on August 17, 2002 (at that time this was both men and women’s official AIDA record).

On October 4, 2002, with a dive team under her husband’s supervision, she made a practice dive off Bayahibe Beach in the Dominican Republic to a record depth of 166 metres (545 ft). After more deep dive practices, on October 12 she prepared to attempt a dive to 171 metres. On reaching 171 metres she opened the valve on the air tank to inflate the lift bag which would raise her rapidly to the surface but the cylinder had no air in it. A rescue diver arrived and inflated the lift bag with his air supply but the bag did not rise fast enough due to insufficient inflation, the riser rope being non-vertical and strong currents. A dive that should have been no more than three minutes resulted in her remaining underwater for more than eight and a half minutes. By the time her husband put on scuba gear and dove down to pick up her unconscious body to the surface it was too late and she was pronounced dead at a hospital on shore. The dive was controversial and heavily criticised as the setup did not match common freediving safety standards. Much of the diving community critique targeted her husband Ferreras who had hurried an underfunded organisation for this record attempt, previously planned for a later date, notably with too few safety divers, lacking proper rescue equipment, with no doctors at sea and shore. Ferreras was in charge of Mestre’s lift bag air tank and did not allow any of the team to check that the tank had been charged. Mestre was not recovered to the surface until nine minutes into her dive, she had a pulse at the surface, but there were no medical doctors available to treat her and minutes were wasted with Ferreras attempting to resuscitate her in the water. An ESPN documentary film written and directed by Alison Ellwood in 2013 had live video footage of the incident and interviews with crew members and staff.

Audrey Mestre was cremated, her ashes scattered at sea. In 2002, she was inducted posthumously into the Women Divers Hall of Fame and in August 2004 a book that tells her story was written by her husband and published under the title The Dive: A Story of Love and Obsession (ISBN 0-06-056416-4).


In 1996 her interest in underwater sports led to her meeting free-diver Francisco “Pipín” Ferreras. They immediately developed a relationship and Mestre soon moved to Miami, Florida to live with Ferreras. There, she took up serious free-diving and with Ferreras as her instructor was soon reaching record depths. In 1999 the two diving aficionados married and the following year, off the coast of Fort Lauderdale, Audrey Mestre broke the female world record by free diving to a depth of 125 meters (410 ft) on a single breath of air. A year later she broke her own record, by descending to 130 meters (427 ft).
