The pyramid was incidental to the record but the divers from the Girls That Scuba (GTS) group were each assigned numbers and rows to see whether the formation could be achieved. 

The evidence for the pre-registered record attempt has been submitted, although it could be three months before the group finds out whether or not it has been ratified.

The dive was the highlight of an event dubbed Girls That Scuba Day at the Manta Dive Resort on Gili Trawangan, off the west coast of Lombok in Indonesia. The day also included sampling twin-set use in the pool, an introduction to technical diving and a presentation on coral reefs.

Claiming to be “the world’s largest female scuba-diving community”, the group is in its second year of existence, on a mission to introduce more women to the sport. It was formed by British diver Sarah Richard after she had worked as a divemaster on a liveaboard in Micronesia and found herself the only female diver on the staff. GTS now claims a combined total of nearly 200,000 followers/users across its online network.
