If you know literally anything about the RMS Titanic, you know that it sunk in the Atlantic Ocean some years ago. Almost 105 years ago, to be exact. There have been many theories over the years as to why the giant ocean liner sank to the depths all those years ago, but one thing is for sure: it's down there and that's where it will stay (for now).
The wreckage of the Titanic rests about 13,000 feet under the sea, and has previously only been accessible by scientists who study it -- until now.
Beginning in 2018, a London-based tour company, Blue Marble Private, will begin running eight-day journeys down to the site of the shipwreck. Yes, all of you Titanic fanatics out there could have the chance to get up close and personal with what is perhaps the most famous fallen vessel of all time.
The tours will be open to just nine clients at a time and will begin the trip from St. John's, Newfoundland and fly to a yacht positioned above the wreck. Travelers will then learn about the ships's inner workings and will even have the opportunity to assist the crew if they wish.
On days three to six of the voyage, passengers will go three at a time into a submarine to visit the ship's wreckage. You'll get the chance to sail over the ship's deck, and even be able to see the famous grand staircase standing out among the debris.
When the trips begin next summer, it will mark the first time since 2005 that it will be possible for anyone from the public to dive the site. Actually, fewer people have seen the shipwreck than have traveled to space or summited Mount Everest. So, it's safe to say this is a pretty big deal.
Obviously, a trip like this doesn't come cheap. A ticket will run you $105,129 which, oddly enough, is about the same price a first-class passenger would have paid for a seat aboard the Titanic if they were to take the trip today. In 1912 the same ticket cost abotu $4,350.
I don't know about you guys, but if I had the cash I would do it in a heartbeat.
