The ultimate documentary, to watch over and over again!


Into The Blue

This is a great movie! Some of the actors are bad, but this movie has long and impressive freediving scenes in the shark infested waters of the Bahamas. Paul Walker is a great freediver and Jessica Alba... is wearing the Omer Ice fins...
It's definitely worth seeing if you likefreediving. The Making-Of scenes are impressive too, they show how difficult and dangerous it was to get this movie done.

The Big Blue

The movie that got everyone to start freediving, Luc Besson's masterpiece. Unfortunately it's out of print, but you can still get a copy on Amazon.

The Dive [2008]

James Cameron, the director of "The Abyss", "Aliens" and "Terminator", purchased the rights to Pipin Ferreras' life story "The Dive: A Story of Love and Obsession". The legendary freediver's book tells his tragic love story with Audrey Mestre. This looks very promising, due to be the the best freediving movie of all times. Unfortunately though, one more movie focusing on freediving accidents, which is not going to help freediving clubs promote our sport, although it is one of the safest and healthiest activities.
