Tours on the Titanic for travelers
The British publication The Telegraph blew the world public with intriguing news: in 2018, a unique journey to the remains of the legendary Titanic will become available. It is assumed that the dive to the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean and the contemplation of the wreckage of a sunken ship will take place in May next year.
Mission in St. John: a tourist dive
One of the largest tour operators in Britain promises to organize an unforgettable tour and immerse tourists to a depth of 4,000 meters to meet with the liner. The details of the trip are no less exciting than the tour to the Titanic, which will last 8 days. Just nine lucky ones who are lucky to be among the first to begin their mission in St. John’s, Newfoundland. Here a helicopter will be waiting for them, which will deliver all crew members to a research yacht. Tourists will spend several days with a group of researchers and scientists. During this time, it will be possible to get acquainted with the work of oceanologists, learn interesting facts about the ocean floor, hear unknown details about the history of the Titanic crash, and also prepare for a dive.

Tour of the Titanic
It is assumed that the most exciting and long-awaited part of the trip will wait on the third or sixth day. It was during this period that oceanologists will especially carefully monitor changes in weather conditions, and will be able to conduct an excursion to the place of “burial” of the liner. Here, in the north of the Atlantic Ocean, accompanied by several experts, including those on deep diving, 9 tourists will be among the first to touch the tragic historical events and see with their own eyes the former power and wilted luxury of a ship that was once considered unsinkable. A mandatory point of the program is the inspection of the deck of the Titanic, on which the famous main staircase is still preserved. According to experts, the dive will last all daylight hours.
How much legendary ship remains?
In April 2017, marks 105 years since the collapse of the giant cruise ship. It is assumed that the same amount – 105 thousand dollars – will have to be laid out to everyone who wants to see the remains of the legend with their own eyes. That is how much a tour to the Titanic per person in eight days costs. Despite the high cost, the organizers of the project are confident in its success. And the thing is not only that the number of tours is still limited. The concern of those who want to look at the world legend is associated with a shocking statement by experts who note that in only a couple of decades, only rusty spots will remain in place of the parts of the body. The deep-sea bacteria Halomona titanicae, which were named after the sunken ship, are to blame for this hitherto unknown science. If a voracious microorganism continues to corrode the ship, then after 15-20 years, the Titanic can completely disappear from the face of the Earth.
The first steps in the development of the sunken giant
It is believed that for the first time after the end of the First World War, they started talking about the airliner in the 1950s, but the technology of those times did not allow it to be searched and climbed to the surface. Only in 1985, after several unsuccessful attempts, the American Robert Ballard, obsessed with passion to find the Titanic, managed not only to realize his dream, but also to make it public.
Almost a decade later, in 1994, the RMS Titanic Corporation acquired the exclusive right to raise the sunken remains of the giant. Deep-sea robots and manned vehicles could not only transmit photos of the vessel and report on bottom reliefs, but also get valuable relics from the crash site. Condemned by the public, the owners of the corporation held exhibitions, auctions, sold unique artifacts to collectors around the world. Things like a cook hat, pieces of coal, a bottle of perfume, a bottle of champagne with a preserved cork, shoes and shoes, cutlery and much more went under the hammer. Only after the change of leadership, the RMS Titanic Corporation stopped pulling debris from the bottom of the ocean, and vice versa, combined work with research institutes to safeguard the memorial that still exists.
Crash and its consequences
The Titanic is the legendary British steamer, which is a truly unique structure. Its length was about 270 meters, its width was just over 28 meters, and its height could be compared with an 11-story building.
On April 14, 1912, this largest, most reliable and luxurious airliner of its time collided with a huge iceberg, during which the casing was seriously damaged. The crew could not be liquidated after the collision. The vessel went under water for 2 hours 40 minutes, taking with it about 1,500 people to the ocean. They managed to save just over 700 passengers. The wreckage of the Titanic rests in the Atlantic Ocean at a depth of 3,750 meters, 600 km west of Newfoundland.
