Another excursion we went on was the Submarine Safari trip! We got picked up at our hotel and drove for around 35 minutes to the marina where the Submarine was.
You don't get much time to look around the shops..maybe just 10 minutes before and after the trip which I found a bit of a shame as it could've been somewhere new to check out.
A few people were panicked when they first had to go down a small stairwell into the submarine but once you have got through that bit you have a big open space where you feel more than comfortable and seats are close together but not too close.
In front of your seats is a BIG window for you to look through and also a little screen in front of you so you can see the submarine go under and back up. (Also shows you the fish from a different angle).
They have a diver go down and feed the fish to attract them to the submarine so we have more to look at! Of course animals will vary and some trips will be more exciting than others i'm sure.
I don't know what I was expecting exactly but we found the trip to be surprisingly boring...I guess once you're in the water you don't really do much but sit and see the same small fish so after 30 minutes you are more than ready to head back up. It also costs 55 Euro each which..considering you don't have time to get some food or look at the shops I just find it to be too over priced!
Though I can now say I have been in a submarine which is pretty cool!
