A titan of maritime history, his legacy lies within the secrets of the ocean he cherished.
Paul Henri-Nargeolet, 73, was a legend in the field of deep-sea exploration. As the director of Underwater Research for E/M Group and RMS Titanic, Inc., he had successfully dived to the Titanic wreckage 37 times, overseeing the recovery of 5,000 artifacts. His expert knowledge of the Titanic wreck site was unparalleled, and his passion for exploration had led him back to the depths time and time again.
Nargeolet was one of five people aboard the submersible Titan, which imploded near the site of the Titanic wreckage in June 2023.
