Charlie Nutting is one of the few freedivers that's been diving up and down the Northeastern United States for close to a decade. He's swam on one breath with Orcas in the Arctic, Humpbacks in Mexico, and Tuna around the world, but can't help but see his own back yard as one of the world's most under-appreciated diving regions.

Seal or golden retriever? This one solicited belly rubs and grabbed my hand with it's flipper when I stopped rubbing its belly, as if to say 'don't stop petting me!' just like a dog. © 2022 Charlie Nutting
