A bathymetric map of Healy submarine volcano is overlain by dive tracks of the submersible vehicle Pisces V. Depths in the area of the dives range from 1120 to 1490 meters. The resolution of the bathymetry data is 25 meters, and the contour interval is 20 meters. Roughly 600-year-old pumice deposits found on the shores of North Island, New Zealand, originated from Healy submarine volcano. The bathymetry data were obtained during a 2005 New Zealand/American NOAA Ocean Explorer research expedition to the Kermadec arc.
