A British luxury travel company, Blue Marble Private, has started selling expensive tickets to the wreck site of the legendary Titanic.
The first 'Dive the Titanic' trip is scheduled for May 2018 at the cost of about US$105,000 (TT$711,490) per person.
Adjusted for inflation, the figure is equal to the price of an original Titanic first class ticket.
The eight-day tour will start with a helicopter ride from the city of St. John’s in Newfoundland, Canada to a yacht anchored near the Titanic’s resting place.
Travelers will spend the first half of the journey learning how to operate sonars and use underwater navigation systems.
Explorers, scientists and expedition crew will tell the divers about the workings of the ship.
Then, the voyagers will get a chance to reach depths of 4,000 meters in a specially designed titanium and carbon-fiber submersible, guided by a crew of experts.
“You will glide over the ship’s deck and famous grand staircase capturing a view that very few have seen, or ever will,” the company’s website says.
The dive will last three hours assisting the expedition team in the submersible and aboard the expedition yacht.
Further missions are planned for 2019.
