Would you like to explore the secrets of l'Ametlla de Mar without the training and complicated equipment required for scuba diving? Come enjoy the amazing underwater scenery equipped only with your diving mask and your snorkel tube! Our team of marine scientists will guide you and teach you everything you need about the underwater life in a natural setting. You can share this 2-hour experience with your family or friends, as this activity is suited for all ages.
Our activity includes a short briefing about marine ecosystems, where we talk about the beautiful posidonia meadows and their importance (especially for l'Ametlla de Mar beaches!). We will also brief you on the most important marine species (animals and algae) we can find around these meadows and on the rocks, including some invasive species. We will train you to recognize the most representative species and share clues to find them easily, but also to identify some of the invasive species that are present here (which you will help us to keep track off through the website of the "Seawatchers" project.
Then it is time to go in the water! Before that, we will provide you with a wetsuit, slippers, mask and tuba and we will make sure that you know how to comfortably use them. As we swim in a shallow area, we don't use fins in order to avoid damage the surroundings. We do our best to limit our environmental impact. Our guides will show you the hidden species, how to recognize them, how to look for them in different places...all fun! You will appreciate the value of these gorgeous beaches and sea life and find a new perspective to it. Back in land, we will check and review all the species that we had the gift to observe!
Participants must be able to swim.
Children can take part in the activity if they are at least 6 years old and are able to swim.
