Today, the Titanic story stands as modern myth: a luxurious dream ship brimming with the Gilded Age's celebrities and its steerage class; a technological wonder so sophisticated, so sound, as to be deemed invulnerable. Add to that the tragic elements of human error and the inexorable power of Nature and the tale of Titanic, with its myriad stories of heartbreak and heroism, becomes a poignant chapter in humanity's collective history. Now you can behold that history.
Operation Titanic is an epic 12-day adventure to the world's most famous shipwreck. From a research vessel in the remote North Atlantic, descend 2 miles to the ocean floor inside high-tech submersibles. Circumnavigate the massive hull, view the bridge, bow, grand staircase, propellers. See firsthand what few have only imagined.
