This is a unique seamount teaming with marine life. The base of Everest starts is at 100 meters (300 feet) and the peak rises to 50 meters (150 feet).
Everest is still fed by sun light and hence very rich with corals, reef fish, rays, and sharks. The dive starts at the foothills of the seamount, climbing slowly along the face of the inclined wall toward the peak. During the dive, we often observe schooling hammerhead sharks, mobula rays, silky sharks, and big tuna fish cruising around the seamount.
Some of the local residents of Everest include a family of large groupers that often greets DeepSee and approaches us for a closer look.
Dive duration is around 1 hour.
