Dive 16: Hadal Hole (“Kinono”)

We are diving now at an unnamed hadal hole in the Phoenix Islands Protected Areas. This dive is the deepest dive of the expedition spanning depths of ~ 5898 – 5785 meters. This site is one of the few hadal zones in the Pacific not associated with a known subduction zone or trench.  It will take approximately 3.5 hours to reach the bottom.
