The Titanic Shipwreck is located just offshore from Washington County in Maine. The closest US point to the Titanic is West Quoddy Head which is about 880 miles (1416 km) as the crow flies to the ship’s location (ok that is more than “just” offshore).
The ship lies on the North Atlantic Ocean floor at about 12,500 feet below sea level. Had it hit the iceberg just 75 miles farther north it would be sitting on a shelf that’s just 150 feet deep. That’s a big difference when trying to investigate and visit a shipwreck. It’s amazing that they actually found it!
