You Can Now Visit The Titanic Wreck On Your Next Vacation
Tickets are just a touch pricey...
Calling all adventurers: A travel company will soon offer expeditions deep into the sea to a place where few have gone before.
Starting next year, interested parties will be able to take an excursion down to the wreck of the Titanic.
Yes, that Titanic.
The big shipwrecked one.
You can go there and see the ship in all its creepy, sad glory, as long as you have the cash.
The London-based travel company organizing the expeditions is called Blue Marble Private, and they will be offering this ultra-exclusive trip to just nine voyagers at a time, starting in May 2018. These expeditions will launch off the coast of Newfoundland in Canada and continue for eight days.
Passengers will leave from St. John’s, Newfoundland, in a helicopter or seaplane and fly to the main expedition support yacht anchored above the wreck.
Divers will submerge in a “specially designed titanium and carbon fibre submersible,” which will take the passengers—along with a crew of experts—to depths of up to 4,000 meters (that’s almost two and a half miles deep). Divers will then have the chance to see stunning views of the ship’s deck and famous grand staircase.
But an adventure like this doesn’t come cheap. According to the newspaper The Daily Telegraph, the journey will cost about $105,129 (£86,500) per person.
