Wreckage of Titanic opened to tourists, ticket is £86,500

Titanic
The shipwreck   The equivalent of a first class ticket

The wreckage of the RMS Titanic will be opened up to tourists – at £86,500 per ticket for those willing to embark on the white-knuckle trip two miles under the sea in a mini-submarine.


From May next year a London-based tour operator, Blue Marble Private, will run eight-day trips to the Titanic’s final resting place.

To make it to the wreckage, the intrepid sightseers will fly by helicopter from Newfoundland to the expedition’s support yacht in the cold and treacherous waters of the North Atlantic.

After spending two days aboard the yacht, they will endure a five-hour dive to the decaying remains of the Titanic on the sea bed on a special ‘submersible’, designed to reach the immense depths.

Here, accompanied by deep ocean experts, they will sail over the ship’s deck and should be able to glimpse many of its most famous sights, including its famous grand staircase.

The trip will be open to just nine people at a time and comes with an eye-watering price tag of £86,500 a ticket.

Taking inflation into account, this is the equivalent of a first class ticket to board the Titanic when it set sail on its doomed maiden voyage in 1912.
