The waters of Bermuda are home to plenty of shipwrecks with many of them diving sites – and there’s no better than The Constellation.

The Constellation is one of the most famous and popular diving spots in Bermuda and was the background of The Deep, a novel by Peter Benchley, author of Jaws, that was turned into a movie in 1977.

The novel was also deeply inspired by the story of Teddy Tucker, a well-known local diver and treasure hunter, who plays the Harbour Master in the movie.

The Constellation was a four-masted wooden hull vessel, more specifically a schooner, measuring 192 foot long and originally built in 1918. Named Sally Persis at first, she was part of the Crowell and Thurlow fleet, a company incorporated in Maine.
