The Titanic’s broken pieces lie in a lonely spot at the bottom of the North Atlantic Ocean, about 12,500 feet (3,800 meters) under the surface.
The famous ship, which hit an iceberg on its first trip from Southampton to New York City, sank near Newfoundland, Canada. The Titanic was not found until 1985 by the US Navy, after more than 70 years of being untouched in its deep and dark grave.
The site of the Titanic is about 350 nautical miles from Newfoundland’s coast, in a place where the ocean is very deep. To understand how deep it is, the Titanic is almost 2.4 miles below the sea level, which is much deeper than the deepest scuba dive ever recorded in 2022, which was only 1,090 feet.
The Titanic is at an amazing depth of about 12,500 feet under the sea level, which shows how huge its underwater location is. For comparison, the deepest scuba dive in 2022 was only 1,090 feet deep, and even the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa, would be too short by about 9,700 feet if it tried to reach the Titanic from the ocean floor.
