You’ll soon be able to visit the Titanic shipwreck

Tourists will soon be able to visit the Titanic shipwreck.

It became one of the most famous cruise liners in history after disaster struck in the early hours of April 15, 1912, when it hit an iceberg.

More than half of its 2,224 passengers and crew members lost their lives when the ‘unsinkable’ ship sank on its maiden voyage from Southampton to New York.

Now over a century later, a company called OceanGate is planning to lead a series of expeditions to take ‘citizen explorers'” to see the wreckage for themselves.

Chief executive Stockton Rush said: ‘We’ve put tens of millions of dollars into OceanGate to get to this point.

‘We have several weeks of our 2019 expedition already filled. There’s significant interest.

‘More people climb Mount Everest in one day than have ever seen the Titanic.

‘If you think about expensive and unusual trips that people take, it’s a very rapidly growing market. There’s a huge demand for a different kind of experience.’

OceanGate’s Titanic Survey Expedition will consist of six missions between June and August 2019.

Tickets don’t come cheap, however.

The trip will cost $105,129 per person.

The company says it’s the first time in 13 years that people will directly view the wreckage, so it’s a rather special opportunity for any intrepid explorers out there.
