What does it take to make a perfect Phuket experience? Answer: Blue skies, white sand, turquoise water and yellow submarines. That’s right – yellow submarines really do exist beyond Beatles lyrics and drug enhanced inner journeys. They are especially prevalent around Phuket where they take visitors on trips to explore the undersea world and marine life. Depending on which company you use, submarines leave from Rassada Pier or Chalong Pier for trips of over two hours, going out about every two and a half hours. These are no miniature submarines – air-conditioned and technologically advanced, everything is very comfortable and there’s ample space for up to 48 passengers and plenty of portals available to stare out into the unknown world in front of you. This is especially good fun for the kids who get so much out of the trip, but of course everyone enjoys themselves. The submarines have external cameras and LCD screens inside showing passengers vivid images of what’s going on beyond the hull. According to one source the tourist over 10,000,000 people have been on submarine tours and there hasn’t been a single accident, making this one of the safest forms of travel available. You are in good hands, whatever the conditions Don’t miss the chance – we don’t all live in Yellow Submarines, but we can at least spend a couple of great hours in one!
