Numerous Titanic fans will be happy to hear about the beginning of dive tours to the famous shipwreck in May 2018. The expedition participants will have a unique chance to descend more than two miles (3.2 km) below the surface of the Atlantic to explore the Titanic and it’s surroundings. What’s more, this could well be one of the last opportunities to visit the site, since, according to a 2016 study, the extremophile bacteria can eat the shipwreck away inside 15 or 20 years.

Participants will have to pay a whopping $105,129 per person, the exact price of the only voyage aboard the Titanic, adjusted for inflation.
