Dive the Titanic

More than 100 years since the sinking of RMS Titanic, we are thrilled to share the opportunity for a limited number of travellers to be part of an epic experience to rediscover the most famous shipwreck in history. Commencing in 2019, the 8-day journey which we are developing with our partners OceanGate Inc, will take just 9 adventurers at a time from the coast of Newfoundland, Canada on a deep ocean discovery to the Titanic.

This is a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience and an expedition designed only for those with an adventurous spirit. Far fewer people have visited the wreck of the Titanic than the number who have been to space or summited Mt. Everest.
