Voyagers can now tour the Titanic in a specially designed Titanium and Carbon Fiber submersible, guided by a crew of experts. The first expedition will enable adventurers to glide over the ships deck and famous grand staircase capturing a view that very few have ever seen, or ever will.
On 14th April 1912 RMS Titanic collided with an iceberg four days into her maiden voyage from Southampton, England to New York City. Just over two hours later, she laid to rest deep at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean.
Now, almost 105 years later, an extraordinary opportunity exists for a limited number of explorers to be part of an epic experience to rediscover the most famous shipwreck in history. The 8-day missions are led by OceanGate Expeditions and will take 9 adventurers at a time from the coast of Newfoundland, Canada on a deep ocean discovery to the Titanic.
The mission shall incorporate learning how to operate the sonar and underwater navigation systems in the revolutionary 5 person submersible built from Titanium and Carbon Fiver, with a depth range to 4,000 metres (13,000 feet)
Tickets are on sale through Blue Marble Private at the cost of $103,000 USD per person, which after adjustment is around the same price of an original Titanic First Class ticket.
During each 8-day mission, six submersible dives are planned. You will join at least one submersible dive to the Titanic and have the opportunity to train and support the submersible operations in roles such as sonar operation, navigation, communications, camera operations, and data logging.
During other mission dives you may choose to support or observe surface operations, or monitor dive operations and other expedition activities with closed-circuit video or audio feeds from the operations deck, navigation, and communications center from your private quarters or common areas.
Mission Specialists may also assist the dive team with pre- and post-dive servicing of the submersible, or perform other Mission Specialist support roles such as reviewing videos and photos of the wreck, analyzing sonar data, or helping with dive planning.
Throughout the mission, content experts on board the ship will share their knowledge of the shipwreck, the history of the ship and the story of her sinking, and the deep sea creatures inhabiting the wreck.
