I imagine a starship could go into an ocean much deeper than a submarine, especially with shields and a structural integrity field in place.
Farnsworth: Good Lord! That's over 5000 atmospheres of pressure!

Farnsworth: Well, it was built for space travel, so anywhere between zero and one.
Obviously they're not talking about a Federation starship.
