Agunnay is spearfishing in the shallow waters. Living in unity with the ocean allows the Bajau to develop extraordinary abilities to free dive. They can go as deep as 20 meters down to look for seafood. They also used to dive for pearls.

"When father took me to free dive for the first time, I didn’t know how to do it. He just showed me how to breathe and block my nose. Then he put a rope with some weights on me and drooped me into the ocean," explains Agunay.
