A dive in the bay that holds the history of Aenaria, the typical sea animals and plants species of the Mediterranean Sea. The Marine’s Reserve Area is a submerged encyclopedia.
Before snorkeling you will watch a video concerning the digging of the underwater archaeological ruins of Roman’s settlement of Aenaria sank due to a cataclysm and about the biological researches made in the area relevant to the volcanic underwater emissions of CO2.
Together with an archaeologist and Skin-diver guide, you will prepare all the necessary equipment before leaving by boat for the different diving points of the snorkeling tour.
Once in the water, the boat will stay nearby the swimmers to ensure a high level of security. The first itinerary will be dedicated to the archaeology and it will let you admire the submerged finds and enter an authentic Ninfeo of Roman’s age.
The second itinerary will be biological and it will let you discover the most important species which populates the Mediterranean Sea and that reproduce in the Marine’s Reserve Area.
The biologist will give you detailed information about these fascinating forms of life and the balance that makes possible the Biocenosis.
At the end of the tour, you will swim through a natural “Jacuzzi” caused by the bubbles of CO2. This phenomenon is studied by a large number of sea biologists coming worldwide. Finally, an interesting conclusive symposium will reveal the results of the studies carried out, concerning the health of the world’s seas, and forecast on future scenarios.
