The Bajau Laut of Southeast Asia spend up to 60 percent of their working life underwater.

The deepest dive recorded was 259 feet (79 meters) and the longest time spent underwater was just over three minutes.

Research shows that they have some physical and genetic adaptations that help them make these amazing dives.
