Ramsey-based Deep Ocean Expeditions has organised multiple dives to the wreck over the past decade – but this year’s expeditions will be its first since 2005.
It doesn’t come cheap. The price of the 14-day trip, including an eight to 10- hour dive tour of the Titanic in one of two Russian Mir submersibles, comes to just under $60,000 a person.
Fewer than 150 people have ever visited the remains of the Titanic which were discovered in 1985 by oceanographer and marine biologist Dr Robert Ballard.
Due to high demand for what is likely to be the firm’s last dive to the Titanic, four trips have been organised in July and August this year for the Titanic Centenary Expedition which is in partnership with the PP Shirshov Institute of Oceanology, part of the Russian Academy of Science.
