Puerto de Mazarrón submerged: the beach at sight of fish is the name of the guided itinerary with snorkeling equipment that the CAMONMAR3 project will carry out on the seabed of the Playa del Rihuete, located in the Port of Mazarrón.
The activity aims to enhance the marine biodiversity of a very popular urban beach, surprising the participants with the biological richness and the variety of shapes and colors of marine fauna and flora that we find only a few meters from the umbrellas of the beach.
For this, from the project they will be provided with glasses, tube, fins and a submersible splint with the main species of the area.
There will be educators specialized in marine biodiversity who will teach attendees to interpret the submerged heritage.
