Guillaume Nery - Base Jumping At Dean's Blue Hole

This stunning Pictures and video of world champion freediver Guillaume Nery base jumping underwater into Dean's Blue Hole will take your breath away.

Dean's Blue Hole is the world's largest underwater sinkhole, plunging 663 feet to the ocean floor in a bay west of the Bahamas. (UPDATE Nery emailed us to say he never reached the bottom; the distance is so far as to make it impossible. Nery says, "This movie is an artistic project, a fiction." He shot it with his girlfriend over the course of four afternoons.)

He broke the world record in 2002 at -87 meters in the Villefranche-sur-Mer harbour, in Alpes Maritimes, France. Then, in 2004, he pushed the record to -96 meters in Saint Leu, la Reunion. On September 6, 2006, he broke the record again at -109 meters in Nice (this record was subsequently broken by Herbert Nitsch at -112 meters in November 2007).

On July 3, 2008, he dove to -113 meters and set a world record. Now July 2010 Guillaume NĂ©ry 663 feet Set the New World Record

    I’ve never been there, but I assume that wall he’s climbing up has coral, sponges, sharp rocks and he’s doing it with no gloves or boots. Kind of makes you go, Hmmm?
