Titanic

OceanGate Expeditions will conduct the first manned submersible expedition to the wreck of the RMS Titanic since 2005.

The survey expedition team will use the latest subsea imaging technology and a newly built manned submersible to assess the condition of the shipwreck and document artifacts in the debris field.

The exploration team will conduct annual surveys of the wreck in collaboration with experts from the Advanced Imaging and Visualization Laboratory at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution as part of a long-term study to document the current condition of the Titanic maritime heritage site.

A seven-week expedition will depart from St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada, late May 2018.
