Underwater Base Jumping (Video)

Free diving world record holder Guillaume Nery, underwater base jumping in the Bahamas at a place called Dean’s Blue Hole.
Dean’s Blue Hole is a  202 meter hole in the ocean. Sorry I couldn’t find a reference on how far Nery dived. 

This video of World Champion freediver Guillaume Nery’s dive at Dean’s Blue Hole is absolutely stunning, The film was shot by Julie Gautier, over four afternoons, and they certainly did a great job putting it all together.

    That looks great, you would never guess that this was filmed over a 4 day period, but what a great effort.
    I read about Nery in Wikipedia he has done so much, I had never heard of him before. Thoroughly enjoyed the video.

      Hi travelrat,
      Yes it looks a bit that way doesn’t it, it’s like there is no end in sight.

        ‘Base Jumping’, in my book, is parachuting off a cliff or a tall building (illegal, in most countries I know). Not for me; I could never see the sense of abandoning a perfectly serviceable aeroplane in flight.

        But, paragliding and paraplaning, yes! At least the chute is deployed before you leave the ground! 😀

    Hi travelrat,
    I’m a bit of a coward, I don’t think I could ever jump from a cliff or anything like that, but I love watching people paragliding, it looks great.
