Explore the sea with a semi-submarine
This red semi-submarine is a novelty for the city and the only one in Albania so far. The tour lasts about 1 hour and you can choose different times in a way when you want to take it. The best thing about it is that you can see the bottom of the sea from the transparent bottom and underwater windows, but you can still go above and breath some fresh air if you don’t feel like being inside the submarine for the whole hour.
