The hunk of steel, on which Jack and Rose supposedly frolicked, lies rapidly decaying in the murky depths of the North Atlantic Ocean. The Titanic had been the largest ship afloat, boasting luxurious interiors and decadent splendour, until its fateful maiden voyage in 1912. This year, for the first time ever, embark on an 11-day expedition to explore its massive wreckage. This includes training for operations such as sonar operation, navigation and data logging for a truly immersive experience.
Departing from St. John’s, Newfoundland, you will fly to meet the Dive Support Ship at sea and join the submersible dive to the Titanic on a vessel called Titan. Catch a glimpse of bio-luminescent sea creatures in the ocean’s inky abyss as Titan journeys to the wreckage.
As you explore the cavern where Titanic’s famous ornate wooden staircase once stood, the scene of Rose descending it surfaces in your mind’s eye. Alongside sea creatures living amidst the wreckage, glide over the remains of the iconic bridge from where the famous order ‘Hard a’ starboard. Stop all engines!’ was uttered. Scout out the ship’s famous landmarks like its giant boilers and enormous propellers.
Diving into the setting of our favourite romances of all time is undoubtedly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity not to be missed.
