Guillaume Nery base jumping at Dean's Blue Hole, filmed on breath hold by Julie Gauti

Filmed by Julie Gautier.. The pressure at 660 ft would require over 8 hours decompression time.. An amazing scuba adventure, let alone free dive..

Considering Gautier did the filming on breath hold, I'd say she had the more difficult stunt.. Can camera's be miniaturized making her job easier. ?. 660 ft is about where light no longer penetrates through water.. She must have also taken along lights.?

Why didn't someone first remind me to never, ever read comments on YouTube?

This wasn't to the bottom, wasn't done in one take - but was quite cool none the less.

20 atmospheres... It would seem either their ear drums are made of super human materials or else they know how to defy the laws of physics.

That reminds me of this story I read in Outside magazine. If you can find a copy it is well worth reading.

I recall reading that as well. Tragic.
