Titanic Wreck Location
Lying 450 miles south-east of Halifax in the North Atlantic the
Titanic now sleeps in a deep frigid watery, grave two miles below
the ocean's inviting surface. She had only completed 1451 miles of
her 1901 mile journey. The exact co-orindates given when she sunk
April 15, 1912 of 41o46' N, 50o 14' W are not those of her exact grave
now that being 13.5 miles southeast what was given in 1912. The stern
at 49o 56' 54" W, 41o 43' 35" N sits 600 feet away from the bow at 49o
56' 49" W, 41o 43' 57" N. The larger debris field is centered
inbetween the wreck at 49o 56' 49" W, 41o 43' 32" N.
The Titanic rests upon the Atlantic ocean floor, just off the coast of Newfoundland, at an enormous depth (12,600 feet). The picture below helps put into prospective just how deep the ship really is.
