Bajau Laut Kids Dive 12 Meters

In this short BBC video clip from 2007 we can see Bajau Laut kids who dive 12 meters over and over again. They have an amazing speed, technique and coordination!

The movie was recorded in the Gulf of Togian, Sulawesi, Indonesia, with freediver and TV personality Tanya Streeter. How far-fetched is the idea that we actually are semi-aquatic mammals?

    • Hi, thanks for your comment! Nice to hear about your website. The theory should definitely be given more attention! I saw that you also mentioned Erika Schagatay under “Key Proponents and supporters of AAT” – very good. Maybe you want to add one of her later publications on free diving tribes. I will send you the article by e-mail. Great header 🙂
