The Beauty of Plunging into Gaping Holes

I recently came across this amazing video on a friend’s facebook page. It’s a simple vignette of a long dive into a wet gaping hole (coincidentally named Dean’s Blue Hole), but there’s something about it that really excites me.

I suppose it’s the mysterious otherworldly adventure that awaits as you watch world champion free diver Guillaume Nery delve ever deeper into the dark recesses of an abyss. Adding to the excitement, is the simple fact that I know absolutely nothing about free diving, let alone that holes like this exist in the world, so it truly is an exploratory moment.

Shot entirely without oxygen tanks by fellow free diver Julie Gautier, the editing and footage is really quite stunning. Also, it doesn’t hurt that the background music is awesome.
