Dean's Blue Hole during Vertical Blue 2008

Vertical Blue is a free-diving school that operates at Dean's Blue Hole, in The Bahamas, and is presided over by freediving world record holder William Trubridge. It is also the name of the annual AIDA International judged freediving competition run at the same location, which since April 2008 has presided over multiple world and national records for athletes coming from countries all over the world.

On November 17, 2013, American free-diver Nicholas Mevoli died after attempting to set an American record during a Vertical Blue competition at Dean's Blue Hole.[1]
