How often do submarines run ashore? and possible transfer to surface fleet.

I have applied for Weapons engineer submariner, I was wondering how often you get a port visit, I know for instance that the ballistic subs don't really do run ashores due to the job they perform, but attack sub from what I understand tend to accompany Fleets, preform some covert escort, or intel gathering thing that take them to places were surface ships would have a port visit. i just wanted to know how often it is for a sub to do the same?

and if subs aren't for me how possible it is to transfer to surface fleet?

I've been lucky enough to have lots of visits on boats - others not so. My advice - start a new bank account or savings account and put all your submarine pay in there and do not touch it. Use this money to go away on exotic holidays a couple of times a year. Seriously.

The added bonus is that if you just live on your 'normal' pay, then should you lose submarine pay for any reason it will not be missed so much.

Why would you want to be a skimmer?

I did a split career, half skimmes and last half boats, found out why submariners party so hard, runs ashore were not as frequent as skimmers.
Plus some places ban boats from entering.
