Alan Evans made this movie in 2008 showing a 3D fly-thru of coarse regional bathymetry of the Cayman Trough prior to our expedition to the Mid-Caymann Spreading Centre where we discovered the deepest hydrothermal vent field known, the Beebe Vent Field.
GoPro camera footage from dives by UK scientists in Japan's Shinkai6500 submersible to deep-sea vents in the Cayman Trough, as part of RV Yokosuka expedition YK13-05 led by Prof Ken Takai of JAMSTEC in June 2013. Includes footage from the first dive by a human-occupied vehicle to the world's deepest known hydrothermal vents--the Beebe Vent Field at a depth of ~5 km (3.1 miles)--and the first human-occupied vehicle dives to the Von Damm Vent Field at a depth of 2.3 km (1.43 miles) on the top of an underwater mountain.

The Cayman Islands were formed millions of years ago due to volcanic activity and tectonic shifting. One of the deepest parts of the Atlantic Ocean, the Cayman Trough is an incredible 22,000 feet deep. The undersea walls around Little Cayman Island plunge 6,000 almost straight down. Divers can swim out over the edge and descend into an abyss that holds beautiful and mysterious sights. The usual fish are less plentiful this far from the surface but the wall still teems with life. Massive sponges of all colors thrive. These sponges attract the critically endangered Hawksbill turtle as it looks for food. Divers can only stay in this mysterious world a short time or they risk a dangerous increase in nitrogen levels in their blood. To give them more time at depth, they carry tanks of nitrox, a ...

It is the world's deepest undersea volcanic vent. Known as "black smokers", these vents eject water hot enough to melt lead and surprisingly is teeming with creatures able to live under extreme conditions.

Cayman Trench Diving
UPDATE: PLEASE GO TO VER 2.0. Come to the amazing Alps, and Cayman Trench. You can go underwater and stay in a high class, five star submarine. In the alps you can stay in a beautiful rustic lodge. There are many different animals that live in these environments, and we can show you the way! ps: (we are a science company, this is not real. it was a test for our equipment. we will be doing scientific research and development from now on, NO FAKE COMMERCIALS.)
Cayman Trench, Diving,
Dive #1349 of the Shinkai6500, 21 June 2013, was the first dive by a human-occupied vehicle to the world's deepest known undersea volcanic vents: the Beebe Vent Field, ~5 km m (~3.1 miles) deep in the Cayman Trough of the Caribbean Sea. For further details, see http://www.theguardian.com/science/2013/jul/05/five-thousand-metres-sea-hydrothermal-vents Aboard the sub were pilot Yoshitaka Sasaki, co-pilot Yudai Tayama, and UK scientist Dr Jon Copley (University of Southampton). The dive took place during expedition YK 13-05 of the research ship RV Yokosuka, led by Prof Ken Takai of the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC), as part of the QUELLE 2013 ("Quest for the Limit of Life") round-the-world voyage of the ship.
Scientists aboard the Royal Research Ship James Cook have found and filmed the world's deepest 'black smoker' vents, 3.1 miles deep in the Cayman Trough (this compilation produced for broadcast media use in April 2010).
Some Isis ROV dive highlights from the world's deepest known hydrothermal vents: the Beebe Vent Field, at a depth of ~5 km (3.1 miles) in the Cayman Trough. This footage was filmed during RRS James Cook Voyage 82 in February 2013; for further details please see http://www.thesearethevoyages.net/jc82/ Many thanks to Adrian Glover for shot selection and main editing!
Enjoy this video production capturing a magnificent wall dive on the East End of Grand Cayman on May 29, 2011. The photographer, Richard Apple, accompanied a group of four divers and their dive master. The four divers were on a father-son-guys-trip from Colorado. They make an annual dive trip to an exotic dive destination and this year the East End of Grand Cayman was their choice. They were led by a friendly and able dive master from Ocean Frontiers Dive Resort, Heather, and descended down the wall to about 100 ft. They then traveled East in and out of the rugged contours of the wall which you can see in this video. Your heart beats just a bit faster when peering down into the Abyss where it bottoms out in the Cayman Trench at about 25,000 ft. The video clips were shot using a Canon t...
Deep-sea hydrothermal vents are among the most extreme environments on the planet. Much is still unknown about the species living here, but mining companies are trying to exploit the rich source of minerals. Video of the 5000m-deep Cayman Trough vents, the deepest known, supplied by Dr Bramley Murton, National Oceanography Centre, Southampton, UK.
Expedition divers will travel to the Cayman Islands to explore the Cayman Trench aboard a deep sea submersible. Divers will also examine the shallow coral reef and its nocturnal residents. In addition, this program will document the progress of a former Soviet warship sunk as an artificial reef off the coast of Cayman Brac. The rays of 'Stingray City' will also be featured.
The True Story Behind The Encounter Of The Largest Deep Sea Shark Ever Discovered. While guiding an expedition into the Cayman Trench, submersible pilot Gary Montemayor and a film crew from the BBC "Blue Planet" encounter a giant. A mystery that lurked in the deep sea had attacked the submarine before. However this encounter proved to be an event that would be forged into their memory forever! http://www.amazon.com/dp/145646387X
I chartered a submarine in Roatan, Honduras to dive 2000 feet deep for a 4 hour dive into the Cayman Trench (aka the Cayman Trough, Bartlett Deep, Bartlett Trough). This was dive number 15 for that submarine to 2000 feet depth. That was the maximum dive depth limit for that submarine on January 18, 2005. There were some technical issues which needed to be overcome before the depth limit could get closer to the 3000 feet hull crush depth. I believe that more people have climbed Mount Everest than have been 2000 feet underwater. I dedicated this video to the memory of my soulmate, Cricket Garrison. Please see her memorial website and underwater memorial tribute video at cricketspad.com. The video was shot on 8mm MiniDV tape using a Panasonic Palmcorder in 2005. The video quality is poor b...
Cruise Ship & Island Travel Gear & Advice - http://goo.gl/wCdIV9 The Cayman Trench is visible within this video past where the dive boat is moored and the water darkens. The depth of the ocean drops immediately from a few feet to a few thousand feet at the Cayman Trench. The Cayman Trench may also be known as the Cayman Trough and is a popular destination for wall divers. Even if you're not a diver and are in Grand Cayman, you can have a great view of the Cayman Trench from Stingray City. Please share this video and subscribe to the IrixGuy Adventure Channel (http://youtube.com/IrixGuy) and enjoy all of my travel videos!

With a crew on the E/V Nautilus, Dr. Robert Ballard's crew are collecting rock samples while they search for a source of methane detected on June 7th. This clip was filmed live online from my home in Worcester , Massachusetts. I hope to create opportunities to have my students work with Dr. Ballard's team this coming school year.
Exploring the mysteries of the Cayman Trough and other regions of the Caribbean, Mr. Ballard and his team hope to discover previously unknown species and shipwrecks, as well as hydrothermal vents, which are the focus of the search.
