A search and rescue operation is currently ongoing for a submarine exploring the Titanic’s wreckage.

CTV News, claimed on Monday that the US Coast Guard has begun searching for a missing submarine that had been on an expedition to the Titanic’s remains.

Oceangate Expeditions, which is running the trip, said it is “exploring and putting into action all options” to get the crew back safely.

All of our attention is being directed toward the submersible’s crew and their loved ones. In a statement, the team expressed gratitude to the many organizations and businesses that had helped them during their search for the submersible. We’re doing everything we can to get the crew home safely.

According to the website, the sub can carry up to five passengers. There was some confusion about the passenger count.

The Coast Guard in Boston and the Canadian authorities in Newfoundland have been contacted.

In April of 1912, nearly 1,500 people lost their lives when the Titanic collided with an iceberg and sank in the North Atlantic Ocean. Nearly 13,000 feet below the surface of the water, southeast of Newfoundland, the Titanic’s wreckage lies in two pieces.

Private tours have lately been made available to tourists for a price, allowing them to have a closer look at the wreck.

The Wayback Machine at the Internet Archive has a cached version of OceanGate’s website, which details the experience that each passenger may anticipate to have for $250,000.

“Become a scuba diver like Jacques Cousteau and explore the ocean floor, starting with a trip to the Titanic’s sunken remains. This is your opportunity to escape the mundane and experience something genuinely extraordinary,” the website stated. Join the select few who have witnessed the Titanic in all its glory.

St. John’s, Newfoundland serves as home base for the expedition’s eight days of exploration. The first part of the journey entails traveling the 400 nautical miles to the wreck.

The “Titan” submersible can carry up to five persons, including the pilot, a “content expert,” and three paying customers, to the ocean floor.

As the submersible descends deeper and deeper below the ocean, its passengers will encounter alien-looking lifeforms zipping past the window. It says on the website that the descent takes two hours but goes by in a flash.

According to OceanGate, the Titan is a carbon fiber and titanium submersible that weighs in at a hefty 23 tons. The business claims that the sub is equipped with a “proprietary real-time hull health monitoring (RTM) system” for analyzing the vessel’s pressure and structural integrity. According to the website, it can keep a crew of five alive for up to 96 hours using its life support system.
