The power of the ocean is unrivaled and of course, whenever we see blue, we can’t help but get excited.

In a nod to this thought, we are heading to the great blue sea for this week’s Otter Escape.

All you need is your swimsuit or swim trunks, as we are going freediving!

“~ Cara a Cara ~ The name of this dive site, meaning ‘Face to Face’ which we definitely were as we freedived with the large Caribbean reef sharks of Roatan.” – Eusebio and Christina, Eusebio Saenz de Santamaria is also a professional freediver.

“The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy or too impatient. One should lie empty, open, choiceless as a beach – waiting for a gift from the sea.” – Anne Morrow Lindbergh

“Here we are descending on a weighted sled on one breath only, and we ascended using only our own self-power from the depth of 100 meters (330 feet).” – Eusebio and Christina
