Scuba Diving, Free Diving, Ocean Environmentalism, Marine Science. Big Deep is about people who have a deep connection to our world’s oceans; connections strong enough that they have dedicated some part of their lives to being in or working on behalf of the water. In each episode we speak with the most interesting people we can find, from scuba diving crime fighters and record-breaking freedivers, to marine biologists and ocean advocates - even a real-life mermaid. So we invite you to join us on this journey, as we explore the ocean through the stories of people who love it.
