Titan, the world’s only five-person manned submersible, can reach depths of up to 4,000 metres. Owned and operated by OceanGate Inc., it goes on deep-sea exploration dives and has recently captured breathtaking images and videos of the long-lost Titanic (a full article on this expedition can be read in Oceanographic Issue 20 and find a shortened online version with new images and videos here).
The Titan submersible is currently being toured around the USA as part of the Titanic Experience Tour. Expedition crew, mission specialists and content experts will host a series of invitation-only and public events in which they will share their experiences of being in over 3,800 metre deep waters and exploring the wreck.
Visitors to the Titanic Experience Tour can look forward to stepping on board Titan where they can learn more about the innovative submersible made from carbon fibre and titanium. Highlights of the tour include a virtual dive onboard Titan as well as never-before-seen images as well as videos from the Titanic wreck site.
