Information on the location

The RV Calypso is a former British Royal Navy minesweeper that was converted into a research vessel for the oceanographic researcher Jacques-Yves Cousteau, equipped with a mobile laboratory for underwater field research. It was severely damaged in 1996, and was planned to undergo a complete refurbishment in 2009–2011. The ship is named after the Greek mythological figure Calypso.

This is the location where Jacques Cousteau rapped. Steve Irwin also briefly rapped here in his first verse. At the beginning of Cousteau's first verse and the end of his second, the SP-350 Denise, his submarine, appeared briefly in the sea.
