Authentic Big Blue Freediving Competition Set For September 16-23


If you’re a fan of Luc Besson’s film “The Big Blue,” there’s a freediving competition in its second year that takes place at the location where the most memorable scenes in the film were shot.

Besson’s film is a love story about the sea, two unique athletes and an endless competition, something that has become a benchmark for the freediving community worldwide.

The second annual Authentic Big Blue tournament will be held on September 16-23, 2018 off the coast of Amorgos, Greece and will be an anniversary event, since 30 years have passed since the official release of the film.

For more info about the event, go to or check out the video from last year below.
