I love this

As someone who suffers from thassalaphobia, this really isn’t making me feel scared. The opposite actually, and just fascinated.

I think this might be shopped.

I know you’re being funny but if you look at the trees next to the top right of the water’s edge, you can see some pretty sloppy cloning.

Diving to the Bottom of the World's Deepest Pool on a Single Breath

Noooooo...

That deep well at the end had me cringing.

That's Guillaume Nery, free diving champion of the world! He can hold his breath for more than 5 mins - this clip is less than 2 mins long, so there's more than enough time for him to get back to the surface safely.

Btw his videos are filmed on breath hold as well by his SO Julie Gautier, French record holder and underwater film director extraordinaire. Be sure to check their videos out!

Shouldn't there be a Piece of Heart at the bottom?

Yeah I was intrigued up until that part. Then it was NOPE NOPE NOPE.

Come in, the water is lovely

Come in, the water is lovely

What fish is this? It looks so intelligent and malicious. And hungry. Like IT in the sewers, waiting for human flesh.

it looks like this fucking thing lmao

Big northern pike or muskellunge (muskie)

is that benedict cumberbatch

A short clip I made when I worked on a cruise ship crossing from Australia to New Zealand

Terrifying, yet orgasmic.

This is hands down, the best gif I have ever seen on this entire site

This is why they charge less for cabins below the waterline; should the ocean ever start to very rapidly enter the ship, it's money well spent.

Question: why would the window be recessed like this? Doesn't it increase drag when it dips below the water's surface? Does it perhaps provide some protection to the window from debris in the water?

Cool gif btw. Very alarming on first pass.

I think I'd rather see a shark coming at me than that thing. Crocodile is worse though. This is between crocodile and shark

It's fake and has been debunked as such for at least ten years

please tell me this is one of those pictures where it looks bigger than it really is??? no???

when you tread, it treads too, when you swim it treads, when you sleep it treads. Each time you rest it gets closer.

I don’t know if this counts as thalassophobia but since I can remember water towers have spooked the shit out of me. I just imagine being inside of one that is 3/4 full, pitch black and freezing with no way out but to swim downwards. No one to hear your screams..

I will allow it this once. Next post needs to be inside of one though.

How is this in /sub/thalassaphobia ??? Isn't it like whats that thing called again.... Against the rules?

This is Rupture farms. They say it's the biggest meat processing plant on Oddworld...

What's this gotta do with having a fear of large bodies of water?

Literally nothing to do with the ocean smh

Deep Water Swell

Deep Water Swell

Looks like that one planet from interstellar

2 or 3 at the very least

Pure morbid curiosity, but how high would you say it is from the bottom to the top of that swell? It's hard to gauge without any reference point.

That scene was terrifying

Thought you guys might "appreciate" this one... (X-POST: r/NintendoSwitch)

That motherfucker is part of the reason I have thalassaphobia. Looks like I won't be playing Odyssey

Hahaha, I forgot graphics used to look like that.

That shit was scary enough before.

Im glad im not the only one. It's nice to know im not the only one scared of that monster since I played mario as a kid.

Woman attempting to slackline between two cliffs over violent waters

My lemongrass essential oils couldn't save her. Sending good vibes.

Cliffhanger!

On a serious note, what happened afterwards and where is this?

It looks like she has a safety harness around her so she's probably all right. Probably just dangling there.

Some say she's still dangling to this day...
