The world’s first private submersible dives to Antartica were achieved in the original Triton 1000/2 submersible. In 2012, a team from Triton submarines filmed penguins swimming below icebergs and majestic jellyfish.
It used to be true that more people had visited the surface of the moon than had been to the deepest point on earth: Challenger Deep in the Pacific Ocean. Thanks to Triton Submarines, Caladan Oceanic and the Five Deeps Expedition, this is no longer the case. Repeatable dives were made possible by the Triton 36000/2.
The world’s first 4K footage of the Titanic, filmed on the first manned descent to the wreck in over 14 years, was recorded with a Triton submersible. National Geographic’s Mission Titanic aired in 2020.
The Sovereign achieved the deepest dive ever by a Head of State by travelling to the deepest point in the Mediterranean, off the coast of the Peloponnese Peninsula. He reached 16,761 ft (5,109 meters) in the Triton 36000/2 submersible.
At some 24,390 ft (8,266 meters) the deepest point south of 60°, and therefore in the Southern Ocean, is the newly-named Factorian Deep. It was discovered by Victor Vescovo and the Five Deeps Expedition team.
In April 2019, the world’s first dives to the Java Trench were made in a Triton submersible. It was on these dives that scientists from Newcastle University discovered a new kind of Snailfish as well as a never before seen Stalked Sea Squirt.
Victor Vescovo makes the deepest dive ever in the Red Sea at the Suakin Trough, just off the coast of Saudi Arabia. Saudi National Mohammed A. Aljahadli joined Victor in the Triton 36,000/2 submersible.
