Join ExplorOcean, two miles down into the deep for, Lunch aboard the Titanic, with Captain Don Walsh.
Thought to be unsinkable when she was built, the Titanic, was the largest ship on the water of her time. During her maiden voyage in April 1912, she collided with an iceberg. Nearly 70 years after her tragic sinking, Dr. Robert Ballard discovered the Titanic at the bottom of the North Atlantic using Alvin, a manned submersible. Her whereabouts became famous, and shortly afterwards, tourists began descending below to visit the shipwreck.
Don will discuss the history of Titanic, give insight from his firsthand experience in the submersible, and take us into the adventure of the search, inspiring the exploration dives that continue today.
