Filmed at Dean's Blue Hole, the deepest blue hole in the world located on Long Island, Bahamas, world champion freediver Guillaume Nery and filmer Julie Gautier produced this great edit titled 'Free Fall'.

The sinkhole plunges 202 metres (663 ft) down, and is relatively circular and straight-walled starting around 100 feet wide on the top and growing to 300 feet wide on the bottom.
Tracked with dramatic music and stock full of aspirational moments, this was filmed entirely on breath held by the French champion. The heavy intro: powerful. The epic freedive: magical. The ascent: something Chris Sharma might be envious about.
See for yourself, and if you're heading to the Bahamas be sure to add this site to your agenda because it's also known as the most scenic island in the chain.
