    deep in the sea / deep under the sea

    Dear all,

    "A battleship was found deep [under / in ] the sea."

    Between the choice of under and in, are they the same in meaning?

    Thank you

    Re: deep in the sea / deep under the sea

    They are both possible, but in this context "under" is more common by a huge margin.
