life as a submariner

hi guys im interested in joining the navy and curious about life as a submariner

my questions are regarding a typical (3-6 month? if thats right) deployment

1.How long are you submerged for on average and maximum before getting out?

2.How often and for how long do you get out over a 6 month deployment?

3.Do you get many or any foreign port excursions?

4. How long is spent between deployments?

5 .Advantages of being a submariner over surface fleet?

3. Not many, Bombers even less.
4. Depends on your drafting.
