UWP: Christina & Eusebio Saenz de Santamaria

One ocean One breath - Christina & Eusebio Saenz de Santamaria

‘One ocean One breath’ is a freediving project between dual record holders and husband-wife team of Eusebio & Christina Saenz de Santamaria. Eusebio from Bilbao in northern Spain is the co-founder of ‘Apnea Total’, one of the world’s largest freediving education systems, a former record-holder in the three depth disciplines and one of the few men to have surpassed the 100+m depth in self-powered disciplines. Christina from Sydney, Australia has been freediving since 2005 and is Australia’s deepest female freediver in history, currently holding National Records in two depth disciplines with freedives to 80+metres in depth and is ranked in the top 5 deepest women in the world.

When not coaching or training on their island home of Koh Tao in Thailand, they are exploring the world’s ocean on one breath with camera in hand; learning and discovering more about their passions of freediving, underwater photography and filming. Freediving has enabled them to have more intimate interactions with marine creatures such as the Spinner Dolphins of Hawaii and the Caribbean Reef Sharks of Roatan. Their adventures have taken them to the depths of the Caribbean, the mysterious Cenotes of the Yucatan, the blue waters of the Pacific, South-east Asia and beyond. Their images are an expression of their underwater experiences as freedivers and a way to share their underwater world with others.
