The Earth in the Bahamas really is flat. The depths are very shallow and the islands don’t reach more than few meters above sea level. Imagine a 202 meter deep sink hole just few meters of the beach. It being in the water makes it actually a blue hole.
Dean’s Blue Hole is where a lot of freediving World Championships have taken place. As our luck has it we not only got to dive it, but we also met one of the former freediving world record holders practicing. His result is 3 minutes and 10 seconds without breath while reaching the depth of 110 meters and returning to the surface. Wow!
There is a permanent platform fixed in the middle of the deepest circle with a 202 meter long line strung to the very bottom of the hole.
Bartek dove to about 20 meters. It is just a circle of light above the total dark and quite void. It’s magic. Enjoy.
Dean’s Blue Hole is the world’s second deepest known salt water blue hole with an entrance below the sea level. It plunges 202 metres (663 ft) in a bay west of Clarence Town on Long Island, Bahamas. Adventures of Ania and Bartek with two little kids sailing across oceans on a 15 meter trimaran as a way of promoting alternative way of life off the grid.
In 2014 we managed to materialize our dreams and traded a land based home in Poland for a permanent life on the ocean aboard our dearest new home – sailboat “Poly”.
For us sailing is a way of free life in sync and harmony with nature and each other. It’s a way of experiencing life, people, and places, entirely on our own terms. For many years it was just a dream, but we followed it and it came true. We are here and now, no longer chasing the dream. We’d like to share it with you so that you can follow your dreams, too.
Follow us to see all the amazing, interesting, crazy, scary, and funny people, places and situations that we experience and learn from. Welcome to our family life unplugged.
Ania, Bartek, Kuba and Julian
