Freediver Plunges Into Deepest Blue Hole

Watch Danish freediver Stig Pryds plunge into the depths of Dean's Blue Hole in the Bahamas

Blue holes are one of The Bahamas’ most distinctive features - hundreds of them are scattered across the islands. Dean’s Blue Hole is the world’s deepest blue hole on record, plunging to about 202m. The site has gained popularity with freedivers in particular who use the site as a training spot for competitions. The excellent visibility (15-30m year round) and the lack of strong currents make Dean’s Blue Hole an easily accessible shore dive. Plenty of reef fish, grunts and snappers are found here as well as the occasional sea turtle.

'When my dive is going well, I have nothing in my head,' says Pryds. 'You let yourself go to the water. There’s no fear of the water.'
