OceanGate still advertising trips to Titanic despite Titan sub implosion

OceanGate still advertising trips to Titanic despite Titan sub implosion

The remains of the Titanic submarine were finally brought ashore this week

OceanGate is still advertising trips down to the wreck of the Titanic.

Five people tragically died last week after their submersible disappeared shortly after making its descent over two miles beneath the surface of the Atlantic Ocean.

Following a large scale search and rescue operation, the US Coast Guard confirmed that it had found debris within the search area.

And on Thursday (22 June), it said that the vessel had most likely suffered a 'catastrophic implosion' and those on board had sadly died.

Currently, an investigation is underway to determine what exactly happened, with the remains of the vessel being pulled ashore this week.

However, despite the tragic series of events, it appears that OceanGate is still advertising trips down to the Titanic wreck.

A post, which is still available at the time of writing, reads: "Follow in Jacques Cousteau’s footsteps and become an underwater explorer — beginning with a dive to the wreck of the RMS Titanic.

"This is your chance to step outside of everyday life and discover something truly extraordinary.

"Become one of the few to see the Titanic with your own eyes.

"Intrepid travelers will sail from the Atlantic coast of Canada for an 8-day expedition to dive on the iconic wreck that lies 380 miles offshore and 3,800 meters below the surface.

"Your dive will provide not only a thrilling and unique travel experience, but also help the scientific community learn more about the wreck and the deep ocean environment."

According to the advert, the next trip will be leaving on 12 June 2024, with another 'mission' going on 21 June 2024.

The advert also includes an itinerary for potential passengers who purchase a ticket.

Discussing the dive, it says: "Once the submersible is launched you will begin to see alienlike lifeforms whizz by the viewport as you sink deeper and deeper into the ocean. The descent takes approximately two hours but it feels like the blink of an eye.

"You may assist the pilot with coms and tracking, take notes for the science team about what you see outside of the viewport, watch a movie or eat lunch. There is a private toilet at the front of the sub if nature calls.

"Soon you will arrive at depth, and after some navigating across the seafloor and debris field, finally see what you’ve been waiting for: the RMS Titanic.

"The content expert onboard will point out key features, be they of the wreck itself or the life that calls this corner of the ocean home.

"Enjoy hours of exploring the wreck and debris field before making the two-hour ascent to the surface."

LADbible has contacted OceanGate for a comment.
