Saipan Real Estate, LLC invites you to check out some of the creatures that live at the deepest part of our planet. These images were taken on one of the most recent dives into the trench (2008). There had been only 3 dives down (two unmanned and one manned), until James Cameron recently edged out a field of challengers racing to the bottom, including Sir Richard Branson, Dane Hodges, and a couple others which makes these images a very rare sight.
The Mariana Trench is the deepest part of the world's oceans, and the lowest elevation of the surface of the Earth's crust. It is currently estimated to be. up to 10,971 m (35,994 ft) deep. It is located in the western Pacific Ocean, to the east of the Mariana Islands.
The trench is about 2,550 kilometers (1,580 mi) long but has a mean width of only 69 kilometers (43 mi). It reaches a maximum-known depth of about 10.91 kilometers (6.78 mi) at the Challenger Deep, a small slot-shaped valley in its floor, at its southern end; although, some unrepeated measurements place the deepest portion at 11.03 kilometers (6.85 mi).
If Mount Everest, the highest mountain on Earth at 8,848 metres (29,029 ft), were set in the deepest part of the Mariana Trench, there would be 2,076 meters (6,811 ft) of water left above it.
