Other half has said for years that he wanted to go on the Submarine Safari, but as I hate water, I have always managed to have other things to do to avoid this ‘adventure’. That is until recently….
Although Submarine Safari offer a free coach transfer, we drove down to San Miguel harbour and parked up. Needless to say, I was nervous but also excited as our yellow submarine arrived and things were about to get interesting. I was praying the trip wouldn’t be too rough, particularly as I would be below the sea, but that was unfounded as we had a great experience.
The trip lasts about one hour and the submarine, which looks just like a plane once you are inside, dives to around 27 metres. You get your own seat and window (porthole) so views are unhindered which is good because you get to see a variety of marine life from different viewing angles. Divers who work for the excursion company swim alongside the sub and guide beautiful fish including graceful Stingray past the submarine for everyone to see. You will also get to see a few shipwrecks. The hour seemed to go by in a flash and before we knew it we were back at the marina.
All in a great excursion for everyone and I wish I had done it earlier.
