You may soon be able to glide along the deck of the Titanic which sank more than 100 years prior, because of an organization that will conduct private dives from next year at the twentieth century’s most famous maritime disaster wreck site.
The eight-day travel sets off from Canada and will transport guests to the mighty vessel’s final resting place, more than 4,000 meters below the surface of the Atlantic Ocean.
RMS Titanic – touted as an ‘unsinkable ship’ – slammed into an iceberg on fourteenth April 1912, only four days into her maiden voyage from England to the US, taking more than 1,500 lives.
London-based travel organization Blue Marble Private starts dives to the disaster area site in May 2018.
The first voyage is already fully booked, in spite of the experience costing USD 105,129 for each individual. As per the organization, this is the equivalent (after inflation) to a first class passage USD 4,350 on RMS Titanic’s inaugural voyage.
Divers will learn to assist the expedition team in the submersible and aboard the expedition yacht. There will be three potential days of diving, with each dives lasting three hours. Divers will get the chance to spot bio-luminescent critters amid the 90-minute descent.
They will explore the remains of the 269-meter-long ship, taking in the deck, the bow, the bridge and the cavern where the grand staircase was once located.
There’ll likewise be the chance to “explore Titanic’s massive debris field, home to various artifacts strewn across the ocean floor, almost undisturbed for over a century,” said Elizabeth Ellis, founder of Blue Marble Private.
