Get to know the world’s only 5-person submersible capable of reaching 4,000 meters, with an unrivaled view owned and operated by OceanGate Inc.

Owned and operated by OceanGate Inc., Titan, the world’s only 5-person manned submersible capable of reaching 4,000 meters, is available for deep-sea exploration around the world. 

Ushering in a new era of deep sea exploration, Titan is making it possible for individuals, researchers, and scientists to observe our planet’s most valuable resources from an entirely new perspective. Constructed of titanium and filament wound carbon fiber, the innovative vessel provides a safe and comfortable space proven to withstand the enormous pressures of the deep ocean.

Check out some footage from recent expeditions with Titan


Equipped with state-of-the-art technology, Titan provides an unrivaled view of the deep ocean. In addition to its viewport, Titan's exterior cameras provide a constant live view of the outside environment. Crew members can access each external camera view from within the submersible on a large digital display, or on a personal hand-held tablet. With the click of a button on their personal tablets, each Mission Specialist can change the camera angle, monitor the sonar, or view preloaded images of deep sea species, and the Titanic as they experience an entirely foreign world that only a handful of people have had the privilege to experience.

Titan Submersible


Throughout the dive, crew members have the option to rotate seating positions, as well as take turns stretching out. The breathable air on board is recycled in a manner similar to that used aboard spacecraft. Regardless of the dive depth, the air pressure inside the submersible remains constant and equal to the one atmosphere of pressure we experience at sea level, eliminating the need for decompression during the ascent.
