It depends on how you do it.  I calm myself right down first, take a few big breaths and reach 3 minutes every time without a problem.

People tend to hold their breath for a longer period of time when they are underwater then they do when they are on land. The current world record for breathing underwater stands at a mere two seconds short of nine minutes, that is at eight minutes and 58 seconds. The world record is currently held by the famous magician and illusionist David Blaine.

On an average, a person can hold his or her breath underwater for a very short period of time that is approximately between 45 seconds and 75 seconds (or one minute and fifteen seconds). When a person is immersed in cold water, there is a considerable reduction in the duration of time that a person can hold his or her breath underwater for. If the temperature of the water is less than 60 degrees Fahrenheit, the person can hold his or her breath for only as third of the average time that is for duration of between 15 seconds and 45 seconds.

I can hold mine for 2:30 I am trying to get 3:00 but that is going to be awhile.

Tip: Try to find a song that changes rythm at like 1:30 or something like that it lets you know how long you are going then you can also look at how much time has passed on the song. GOOD LUCK dude who is going for the Charity!!!

I can hold my breath for over 7 minutes but I guess it helps that I am on the swim team... Keep working on it and you will eventually get to the 9 minutes!

P.S. Pie is good
