UK company to offer tourists a view of the Titanic shipwreck for $105K
A U.K. travel company called Blue Marble Private is planning to launch a tour where guests will be able to view the wreckage of the Titanicabout 13,000 feet deep in the North Atlantic Ocean.
The eight-day package will be offered to a group of nine people at a time.
And, according to The Telegraph, "Should weather conditions allow...up to three passengers at a time will clamber aboard a specially designed titanium and carbon fibre submersible to see the decaying remains of the Titanic itself."
The travel company's website also promises that "...you will glide over the ship's deck and famous grand staircase capturing a view that very few have seen, or ever will."
In fact, it emphasizes the rare nature of the trip by stating, "Far fewer people have visited the wreck of the Titanic than the number who have been to space or summited Mt. Everest."
The experience will likely remain an exclusive one since the package is expected to cost $105,129 per person.
Tours are slated to launch from the coast of Newfoundland, Canada starting in 2018 with additional trips planned for 2019.
The Telegraph notes that the "trip marks the first time since 2005 that it has been possible for the public to dive to the site of the Titanic."
