Unbelievable Underwater World Journey Seen From A Free Diver

Free diver Guillaume Néry glides beneath ice sheets, walks the ocean floor with spearfishermen, and swims with whales in this breathtaking short by Les Films Engloutis. Shot in France, Finland, Mexico, Japan, and the Philippines, One Breath Around the World takes viewers on an unparalleled underwater journey. Julie Gautier, Néry’s wife, filmed the piece while free diving as well. Néry and Gautier draw on their extensive experience to explore submerged ruins, swim beneath a thick sheet of ice, mingle with a pod of sleeping sperm whales. (National Geographic)

Guillaume Néry, French free diver, can hold his breath underwater for more than seven minutes, dive more than 126 meters without air and has made it a habit of running on ocean floors around the world. He is a professional free diver, meaning he dives without breathing apparatus. (FRANCE 24 English)


Freediving, free-diving, free diving, breath-hold diving, or skin diving is a form of underwater diving that relies on breath-holding until resurfacing rather than the use of breathing apparatus such as scuba gear. (Wikipedia)
