There are so many freediving videos on YouTube, so much so that it is practically impossible to choose the best. Nearly every free diver takes to the water with either a GoPro or an underwater camera and what they discover and explore is just incredible. Without the effort and size of carrying scuba gear, freedivers can get into the smallest of cracks and caves that would be too dangerous for scuba divers.

Orchid Island’s Blue Hole
Starting us off on our top 5 list happens to be from the FreediverHD channel. This video was filmed at the Orchid Island’s Blue hole in Taiwan and shows the free divers experiencing a cave located 8 metres below the sea level. This is an amazing shore dive and during the filming the divers reach approximately 16 metres into the cave system. This excellent quality freediving video is one for our list. If you do want to complete this dive then the cave gets even deeper until you eventually touch the sea bed.
Free Diving Blue Springs Florida
If you are an adrenaline junky free diver and are looking for an incredible dive, then the Blue Springs State Park, Florida seems like the perfect dive for you. Showing a number of different cave routes, this free diver makes this dive look easy. However, do not be fooled, this is a very technical cave dive and requires a lot of experience. Descending into complete darkness, with only a torch as a source of light, this dive looks like it is adrenaline boosting, even for the most experienced and technical of free diver. Free diving certainly takes you to places that you could never imagine. I have found myself holding my breath throughout this video, just to be a part of this incredible dive.
