For anyone interested in the experience of deep, dark freediving without actually chancing an encounter with the Kraken, allow freediver Guillaume Néry (previously featured here) to do the diving for you in this awesome short video entitled “Free Fall.” ;
Shot off the west coast of Long Island in the Bahamas, this dramatic video shows Néry diving into Dean’s Blue Hole, the world’s deepest known salt water blue hole, measuring 202 meters (663 ft). Also known as vertical caves, blue holes are underwater sinkholes with an entrance located below the water level. At a depth of 20 meters (66 feet) Dean’s Blue Hole widens into a 100 meter (330 ft) wide cavern. We’re still not convinced the Kraken doesn’t at least hang out there from time to time.
