Vertical Blue 2022 Kicks Off Next Week!


The world’s biggest event on the competitive freediving calendar — Vertical Blue — is set to begin next week at Dean’s Blue Hole in the Bahamas.

Forty-two male and female athletes from around the world will be competing over nine days in the Constant Weight No Fins (CNF), Constant Weight with Monofin (CWT), and Free Immersion (FIM) disciplines.

If you can’t make it out to Dean’s Blue Hole, not to worry! Vertical Blue’s organizers have partnered with Diveye to Livestream every competition day. One ticket — US$39.95/~€39.47 — gives viewers access to all those days, plus video on demand if you miss the live feed. That’s fantastic good value, given that visibility at the site is near-perfect (52m/171ft at last measurement) and being able to have a ringside seat to all the action at Deans Blue Hole.

Sign up here for the Diveye video service, and for more info about this year’s Vertical Blue, go to 2022.verticalblue.net.
