The DeepSee Submarine

The DeepSee submarine at Cocos Island
While I was in Cocos, I had the opportunity to photograph the DeepSee submarine, which is owned by Steve Drogin, a friend of mine. Underwater photographer Daniel Selmeczi and I followed the sub down to just past 20 meters before it disappeared into the deep blue below us (to the site called Everest). We waited on the control boat for about an hour, and then jumped in again as it surfaced in Manuelita Coral Garden.

The DeepSee is a three-man submersible rated to 1500 feet. I sat inside of it on the surface once when it was on display in San Diego, but I haven't been down for a dive yet. Maybe next time! :)
