Museo flotante submarino S-61 Delfin
This S-61 Delfin is a real submarine. This is a remnant of the Spanish navy fleet Armada. 33 years after its founding, this submarine was converted into a floating museum. The submarine is 57.8 meters long and during its use there were 1 commander, 7 officers, 15 non-commissioned officers and 33 marines on board. This submarine is arranged as an exhibition. Visitors have the unique opportunity to get acquainted with the inside of this submarine and thus get an idea of how the crew lived and survived on board.
We enter the submarine via the torpedo hatch. There is not much space and luxury. Every centimeter has been used. Crew members often had to share their bed with other people. They worked in shifts. So when one slept, the other was at work. There was always noise from the engines and because the heat from the engines could not escape, the temperatures rose high inside. The crew members could rarely wash or shave themselves. Due to the combination of heat and moisture, the food quickly molded, so they had to survive on canned food. The life aboard a dive boat was anything but romantic
Next to the Delfin S-61 there is a customs patrol boat, the Albatros III. After its years of service in 2006, it was set up as a museum.
This is a unique opportunity for enthusiasts to view a real dive boat from the inside.
