(ORDO NEWS) — The American businessman intends to conduct expeditions to the Titanic for tourists starting next year.
Stockton Rush, director of OceanGate Expeditions, expects to be able to organize dives to a depth of more than three thousand meters each year from May to September every week on the sunken liner.
He plans to do this with a private submarine for five people. According to him, on the expedition from May to July 2021, some places have already been reserved.
The businessman is not going to turn the Titanic into a tourist attraction and expects that his initiative will be profitable. The ticket price will be 125 thousand dollars.
It is planned to get to the dive site from the Canadian island of Newfoundland. The underwater part of the expedition will last from six to eight hours, including diving, site inspection and ascent to the surface.
Each tour will be attended by five people: a submarine captain, a research scientist and three tourists.
