The Submarine Dolphin S-61 and Torrevieja Floating Museum Albatros are real boat remnant of the Spanish Armada Navy. These are part of the Museum of Sea and Salt, cultural heritage of Torrevieja.
After 33 years of service, it was turned 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. The boat could dive to a depth of 300 meters.
Visitors can get acquainted with the interior of this submarine, and thus get an idea of how the crew lived and survived on board. There is not a lot of space in the submarine: every centimetre was well thought out and had its own purpose. Crew members often had to share a berth with colleagues. They worked in shifts. Therefore, when one was asleep, the other was at work.
Next to the Delfin S-61, there is a patrol boat, Albatros III. After several years of service, in 2006 it was transferred to the status of a museum.
*Important Update: Submarine S-61 Dolphin is temporarily closed.
