The tour begins with a boat ride from the harbour up to the submarine docking spot. For the more fearless travellers, there is an open seating section available for better views of the port, boats passing by and other seaport activities. The submarine’s porthole allows for an endless view of the underwater scenery, guaranteed to fascinate everyone on-board.
The Seogwipo Submarine Tour travels through Munseom, an area that brags of lush seaweed, fantastic schools of fish and splendid coral reefs – everything is a sight to behold! With Munseom’s superb landscape, it is considered as one of the best places for diving. The submarine goes around the island; guests can enjoy the splendid view of fabulous rock formations and other beautiful sights on the way back.
