Titanic-Wreck Tour Charging $250,000 a Guest Has Gone Missing(Bloomberg) -- A diving craft from a company that charges $250,000 for tours of the Titanic shipwreck has gone missing in the North Atlantic with five people aboard.
“Our entire focus is on the crew members in the submersible and their families,” OcenGate Expeditions, which runs underwater vessels for charter and scientific exploration, said in a statement Monday. “We are working toward the safe return of the crew members.”
OceanGate offers 10-day expeditions to the Titanic site providing “qualified explorers” the opportunity to join as mission specialists, who pay fees to underwrite their training and participation with the science teams exploring the legendary ship that sank in 1912 on its maiden transatlantic voyage after hitting an iceberg. The guests pay a quarter-million dollars, according to the New York Times, which first reported the rescue operation.
