The Ultimate Adventure? Seriously…
This expedition isn’t set to happen until 2008, giving you plenty of time to line up your life-insurance policies to include ‘accidental death due to diving to the bottom of the Arctic Ocean at the North Pole.” As the silly folks at Deep Ocean Expeditions explain it:
“This once-in-a-lifetime expedition will not be content with merely reaching the surface ice at 90° North. DOE proposes to descend to the real North Pole, a dark and mysterious place never before visited by humans.”
You may want to begin saving your pennies early for this one, as the total cost of the cruise to the pole and dive to the bottom of the Arctic will run you about $95,000. If you fancy yourself more of a sightseer than an arctic adventure diver, you can take the cruise to the pole and stay on the surface for a mere 10 Gs. Transportation to Finland not included.
For the well-endowed (financially) adventurer, DOE also provides other expeditions including tours of the wreckage of the Titanic and the Bismarck in the Atlantic.
