You Will Soon Be Able To Tour The Titanic Wreckage

The sinking of the RMS Titanic on her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City is one of the most talked about disasters ever.

The tragic incident occurred in 1912 and to this day, the world is fascinated by the events surrounding the wreck.

Over the years, there have been a movie, books, documentaries and a lot of theories about the fateful ship but soon you can get an interactive experience that trumps all of the above.

Blue Marble Private, a London-Based tour operator announced that it will be offering eight-day expeditions to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean where the remains of the ship rests.

The tours will begin in May 2018 and it isn't as simple as it sounds. It's literally a journey.

Participants will need to fly via helicopter from Newfoundland, Canada to the expedition's yacht. The yacht will then set sail for 2 days after which the passengers will need to board a mini submarine for a 5-hour dive to the site of the sunken ship.

Tourists will be accompanied by deep ocean experts during the tour which includes the ship's famous grand staircase.

Of course, getting an up close and personal view of those stairs doesn't come cheap. Tickets are currently on sale for $105,129. According to the Daily Mail, when inflation is taken into account, this would've been the cost for a first class ticket to board the Titanic back in 1912.

The dive is already booking up and the company is planning a second round for summer 2019.

Money aside, would you take the tour?
