Remember that opening scene in Titanic where the old Rose is in the submarine, looking longingly to the shipwreck, and ends up rambling about how she is fundamentally responsible for Jack’s death? Well, now you have the chance to make your own way to the legendary wreck with a new excursion offered by Blue Marble Private, a luxury travel agency in the UK.

The journey, aptly named Diving the Titanic, will offer a small group of guests the opportunity to descend 13,000 feet in a mini-submarine to the remains of the world’s most famous wreck with an expert crew, who will show you around the doomed liner – including its famous bridge and staircase – where it settled after sinking nearly 105 years ago.

Departing from Newfoundland next May, the eight-day trip will be open to just nine well-heeled passengers at a time, who will be guided by helicopter or seaplane to a yacht near the wreck. There, they will be treated to lectures and in-depth sessions on the history of the Titanic as well as the mechanics of underwater exploration. Then, weather permitting, they will board a specialized titanium and carbon fiber submersible and descend nearly three miles across the North Atlantic to the legendary site, which has been visited by fewer people than those who have climbed Everest or traveled in space.

Unsurprisingly, reserving a seat yourself doesn’t come cheap. The cost, per person, is $ 105,129 – or the inflation-adjusted equivalent of what people paid for a first-class ticket on the Titanic’s maiden voyage. Fingers crossed, this is where the travel similarities end.
