In the Underwater World

Diving with one breath. This means freediving and as the instructor Vassilis Garoutsos explains, in this way people have been diving in the sea since the time they were foragers, looking for their food. Underwater fishing became very popular after World War II, perhaps because people valued the value of freedom and independence. Diving tourism offers many professional opportunities to those involved with the genre. A professional instructor of freediving and spearfishing, Mr. Garoutsos decided 17 years ago to hang his NTUA Mechanical Engineering degree on the wall and choose to travel to the unknown and magical world of the seabed. In absolute silence, where time almost stops.

With one breath, which can last up to 3-4 minutes, the newly trained diver can achieve what he previously considered impossible. A journey short, but so special. Man exceeds his natural limits, he sinks completely and literally into the liquid element of the sea. It begins the adventure in the endless blue and integrates into the ecosystem, without components, mechanisms or other assistance. Achieving the goal, the conquest of the sea offers freedom and self-confidence.
