Always wanted to visit the underwater wreck site of Titanic?
Well, now you can. Next spring, for the first time since 2012, eight-day dives will take willing tourists to see the infamous shipwreck. But, as it turns out, you’ll need to act fast, as deadly bacteria is quickly destroying what remains of the iconic ship.
Since the Titanic sank on the fateful night of April 14, 1912, it is estimated that fewer than 200 people have visited its final resting place. For the sinking’s centennial in 2012, Deep Ocean Expeditions led a series of 12-day dives where groups of 20 tourists, paying $59,000 each, explored the famous watery grave.
Now, for $105,129 per person, those who were worried they missed their chance can embark on an eight-day tour with Blue Marble Private who is working with OceanGate Expeditions.
The seven-week expedition will start in May 2018. It will also include specialists, submersible pilots, operations crew and a group of nine tourists. These specialists will not only get to glide over the picturesque grand staircase but will be assisting with the research work and get a chance to relive history in a different way.
