The Mariana Trench is the deepest place in the Pacific (or any ocean). It is located east of the Mariana Islands. It reaches a maximum depth of over 36,000 feet.
The deepest place is Challenger Deep at the bottom of the Marianas Trench. Challenger Deep got its name from the British survey ship Challenger II, which pinpointed the deep water off the Marianas Islands in 1951. Then in 1960, the US Navy sent the Trieste (a submersible – a mini-submarine designed to go really deep) down into the depths of the Marianas trench to see just how far they would go; they touched bottom at 35,838 ft/10,923m.
