Haenyeo – Women Divers of Jeju Island – South Korea
Be sure to include women divers in your 2023 itinerary of Jeju Island trip.
Jeju Island’s Women divers (Haenyeo) were registered by UNESCO in 2016. To make a living, they dive to a depth of 10 meters without wearing oxygen mask for divers to collect seafood. They hold their breath for one minute each time and dive for up to 7 to 8 hours a day. When they finish their dive and come to the surface, they let out the breath and this breathing sounds like a whistle, which is called the “Sumbi” sound.
The image of a female diver jumping into the rough sea without hesitation, relying on a small buoy, is a vivid symbol of the spirit of Jeju Island residents. They want to collect more seafood, but since they do not have equipment to help them breathe, they need wisdom to control their desires.
