Salas y Gómez Expedition: The Sunken Cathedral - GeoEye is Elevating Insight on NATGEO Blog

Salas y Gómez has revealed some of its secrets, but also raised some questions. We conducted three dives today in quite difficult conditions. The swell was large and when we were doing our shallow work, it moved us up and down as though we were in a washing machine.

Our first dive was at a reef off the southeast corner of the island. We spotted this site because of the tremendous waves breaking on top of it. (You can actually see the break in the high-resolution satellite imagery of the island on Google Earth and GeoEye obtained for the expedition.)
