One of Bermuda's most notable shipwrecks, the Constellation, is a 60-meter (200-foot), four-masted schooner met its demise in 1943 en route to Venezuela. The story of the doomed vessel is said to be the inspiration for novelist Peter Benchley's thriller The Deep. Today, divers from all over the world explore the wreck submerged in nine meters (30 feet) of water, 13 kilometers (eight miles) northwest of the Royal Naval Dockyards Visitors Centre. The hull is home to an array of colorful sea life.
