Always Dream Of Diving To The Wreckage Of The Titanic? Here’s Your Chance

We all know about the famous collision of RMS Titanic with an iceberg in 1912, probably the most famous shipping disaster in history.

The incident even inspired James Cameron to make an iconic film “Titanic,” which went on to win the Academy Award for best picture.

If you think watching the movie was the closest you could get to seeing what the Titanic was actually like, you could be wrong.

A London-based travel company is offering the chance to discover the shipwreck, still at the bottom of the North Atlantic Ocean, up close and personal.

The travel company named, Blue Marble Private is launching diving expeditions to the wreckage from May 2018.

Nine people at a time will go on an eight-day journey, starting off the coast of Newfoundland, Canada.

A “specially-designed titanium and carbon fiber submersible” will take the divers along with a crew of experts to depths of up to 4,000 meters.

Divers will have the chance to swim over the ship’s deck and famous grand staircase.

It marks the first time since 2005 that it has been possible for the public to dive to the site of the Titanic.

The journey, although, will make a huge hole in your pocket. The expected cost is $105,129 (£86,500) per person, equivalent to what a first class passenger would have paid to board the Titanic in 1912.
