Drift diving can help you cover a lot of area in a short amount of time. But one underwater filmmaker is taking it to another level by diving more than 30 miles of the St. Lawrence River during a 24-plus-hour journey—all to raise awareness about river pollution.
This weekend, Montreal-native Nathalie Lasselin began her marathon dive in the St. Lawrence river in the West Island. As part of an effort to highlight the importance of river health, Lasselin will pass two tunnels and eight bridges during her drift.
“The planet is going to survive without us. The planet doesn't need us. However, we do need the planet,” Lasselin said prior to the dive.
The intrepid diver will carry along quite the list of gear to complete the tasks, including a rebreather, multiple tanks, a propulsion vehicle, and various lights. As well, Lasselin will use a communications system to talk with a surface-based safety support team.
