Freediver Ai Futaki Swims with Grey Reef Sharks

Freediver Ai Futaki is at home in the water where she helps act as a bridge between the water world and the human world.

Ali helps bring attention and understanding to her conservation message through photography, modeling and underwater performance. In addition to being a sea-life ambassador, in 2011 Ali set two Guinness World Records for the longest distance dive in a cave with one single breath. One record was with the use of fins and the other was without fins.

In this video, Ai freedives with several grey reef sharks at a dive spot known as Vertigo. The dive location is at the western reefs off Yap Island in Micronesia and is known for having a large population of sharks and manta rays.

The video/editing was done by Peter Schneider and the still photographer was Tim Rock.
