One of the greatest tragedies of the early 20th century was far and away the sinking of the RMS Titanic. On April 14th 1912 the cruise ship hit an iceberg off the coast of Newfoundland and sank, taking 1,503 people with it. Now, 105 years later, a small company is offering a select group adventurers the opportunity to dive the Titanic.

Planned for early 2018 and 2019, Blue Marble Private and OceanGate Inc. will take 9 passengers on an 8 day excursion which culminates in a deep dive down to the sunken ship. In order to get down to depths of 4,000 meters, the team behind this trip has built a special titanium and carbon fiber submarine that can withstand the immense pressure and maneuver itself artfully enough to glide over the ghostly deck of the ship and look at the famous grand staircase. Fewer people have seen this sunken marvel than have been to space or landed on the moon – making this trip a truly once in a lifetime opportunity. Unfortunately, it comes with a price tag to match. The is ticketed at $105,000. [Purchase]
