On May31 “Scuba Dive To The Titanic” will begin a virtual dive to the Titanic.
Its an interesting and novel idea for a fundraiser. “Scuba Dive to the Titanic” , a charity organization, will conduct a virtual dive of the Titanic to raise fund for PTSD Scuba Diving and the National Lifeboat institute.
In order to raise funds for PTSD Scuba Diving and the Royal National Lifeboat Institute. I am going to scuba dive to the equivalent depth of the Titanic’s resting place at 12,600 ft, virtually visiting other shallower wrecks and posting their story.H/T ‘ScubaDive to the Titanic” – Facebook Page
The dives are scheduled to occur in Dean’s Blue Hole, Long island, Bahamas.
How these virtual dives are setup:
50 shipwrecks will be visited virtually over the 12,600 feet to be amassed to get to the depth of the Titanic’s resting place. Each wreck visited will get a full story posting on their “Scuba Dive to the Titanic” Facebook page.
The first of 100 dives, to reach an accumulated the accumulated depth of the Titanic, will be to the HMS Southampton (1812) at 33ft. This dive is scheduled for the May 31, 2020 to celebrate the May 31st launch of the Titanic.

In an order issued Monday in Norfolk, Va., District Judge Rebecca Beach Smith said RMS Titanic, the court-designated salvage firm for the Titanic, made its case that the radio had enough historic value to justify sending a specially equipped robot into the wreck.
