A video has been circulating recently featuring Guillaume Nery, a world champion freediver, performing a unique dive into Dean’s Blue Hole; the deepest under water sink hole of it’s sort on the planet. It plunges 202 meters deep into a bay west of Clarence Town on Long Island, Bahamas. Nery was filmed by fellow French champion-diver Julie Gautier for a few consecutive days in order to capture the films breath-taking images. It is originally intended by the two divers to be a work of “fiction,” as the film gives the impression that Nery reaches the bottom of the sinkhole, though he never truly did. Nery has said he wished to use the film as a means of showing what freediving is, and the complexity of the sport.
It is a beautiful film regardless, and captures the raw thrill of free-diving for the many people who have yet to witness the sport.
