The Big Dives - Into the Trenches
After the first three missions, we will start diving on trenches below 20,000 feet in the Western Pacific and Indian Oceans, then eventually into the Atlantic. This represents the next two years of dive locations.
More on the Trenches
The primary goal is to hit the deepest location in each of the five ocean basins. The name of the sub - Pentarius - comes from five, pent, and Aquarius, the water carrier. Beyond these five are dozens more great trench dives - trenches where subduction is happening more quickly like the Tonga, or closer to land like the Kermadec and New Briton. Spreading ridges, smokers, fault lines, deep wrecks - all lie ahead.
The Crowd Sourced Expedition
We want your input! We will collect suggestions from the crowd and eventually crowd source the destination that is most popular and go there. We will be looking for not only the where, but the why - what is in the place you think we should go?
