Claire Walsh spent her twenties living the life she thought she was supposed to live, all the while playing hide and seek with depression. As a result, the road to recovery was the only travelling she did. Aged 32, single and living with her parents, she decided it was time to chart her own path. Booking a flight to South America, she let go of ‘at home Claire’ and opened herself up to a new world of possibilities.

It was here she discovered freediving. Diving deep under water without the use of breathing apparatus. Freediving is one of the most dangerous sports in the world, but at 60 metres below the surface, Claire discovered a fresh perspective that transformed her life and helped her find freedom.

'20,000 leagues of sparkling adventure and tap-dancing prose.'  Ruth Fitzmaurice, author of I Found My Tribe
