Victor Vescovo and his team from Caladan Oceanic Expeditions and EYOS Expeditions set out to find the Roberts' last resting place in the Philippines, 22,621 feet below the surface. After a successful search, they discovered 306 feet of shattered metal - the most profound shipwreck in history. The destroyer had sunk during World War II. Victor Vescovo, a former naval commander, was surprised to find the ship as there was very little debris that pointed in the right direction.
Even though it was broken into two pieces, it was relatively intact in the middle. The team had been looking for several ships, and the Sammy B was the smallest.The USS Roberts split into two pieces was discovered on a 22,916-foot deep slope in the Philippine Sea. This makes it the most profound shipwreck ever discovered in the world. It surpasses the USS Johnston, which had previously been the world's deepest shipwreck, located by Vescovo in the same region last year at a depth of approximately 21,200 feet (6461.76 meters).The discovery of this shipwreck is a remarkable achievement and a testament to Victor Vescovo's dedication to exploring the depths of our oceans.
