Certified divers from all dive associations are invited to join us on our guided tours. The groups are always small with a lot of individual support. This mixture of people, ages and abilities that we encounter daily helps to keep us on our toes and makes each day unique and exciting for us here at Oceans Edge.
OUR CONTRIBUTION TO THE ENVIROMENT
While we are in the water we not only focus on our diving skills but are also aware of environmental care and the role we must play by diving in a responsible manner. Starting with our daily habits we can all make a real change. Here, at Oceans Edge, our help begins by removing litter from the ocean and the surrounding beaches. We refrain from collecting shells and other creatures and pay special attention to our position in the water so as not to damage underwater life. Join us on our mission!
You will have the opportunity to dive in the Posidonia oceanica meadow, an endemic Mediterranean plant, not a seaweed. The meadow plays an essential rule in the ecological equilibrium of the sea. From a local point of view, the meadows are the habitat and the food for a big number of species of fishes and invertebrates, especially larvae and young fishes.
The plants of Posidonia oceanica grow forming submerged, long, high and wide meadows, on sandy or on fine and coarse gravel bottoms. For an optimum growth it needs transparent waters. For this reason, the presence of dense and large meadows is a clear sign of the quality of its waters
They also play an important role in the processes related to the beach and dune system. The dead leaves of Posidonia oceanica that can be found on the shore act as a natural spring that reduces wave energy, minimizing erosion.
