I'm pretty sure this isn't ours, but it's still quite a cute video

It's very well done... I wonder if it was done in one take with multiple videographers?


Coming to AC in mid-June! Can't wait! :-)

"Dean's Blue Hole is the world's deepest blue hole (underwater sinkhole), which plunges 202 metres (663 ft) to the ocean floor.This blue hole is on Long Island Bahamas"

As he dived in firs thing i thought was how is he going to get back up with no fins on LOL

The Hole reminded me a bit of Shark Hole when I dove that which is near tobbaco Caye it is a deep hole also and has an island of sand in the middle.

Maybe Peter has dove that in his tech days and can tell us the depth

Never been there, and didn't know which one it was anyway. But I'm sure this video is made up of lots of takes, and parts certainly look false. There is no way a freediver would attempt this sort of thing without long fins and also probably a weighted sledge.

Quite fun to watch though.

Absolutely stunning videography. There is only one camera woman listed. Of course it was mostly faked, very clearly but that doesn't undermine the extraordinary visuals, amazing editing, and great music. Wow!
