Engel & Völkers Altea proposes:
The Altea City Council, the Natural Park of Serra Gelada and the dive center Greenwichdiving organize a schedule of guided snorkeling tours from four beaches in the Altea Bay.
Participants can snorkel through the surface, fitted with fins, masks and tubes, on Wednesdays and Fridays.
Meet the richness and biodiversity of the seabed from the surface of Altea. Snorkeling municipal water will be possible this summer. The Altea City Council, the Natural Park of Serra Gelada and the dive center Greenwichdiving have organized a schedule of guided tours from four beaches in the resort to get to know the marine environment.
These guided tours will include a swim through the sea surface, equipped with fins, mask and snorkel to enable participants to know what lurks in the deep sea. This activity is suitable for people of any age and physical condition and is a cultural and environmental complement to all tourists or for any lover of nature.
The first route is scheduled for Wednesdays and will be from L’Olla or Cap Negret. The second, for Fridays, will start from North Mascarat, with departure from the dive center at the Port of Campomanes. The visits will take place during the summer, those two days, from 18 June to late August with departure at 10.00 hours and lasting approximately 90 minutes.
The groups will be of 12 people and the price of the activity is 10 euros per person. Plus, if needed, the rental of equipment (fins, mask and snorkel) will cost 5 euros per person. Registrations and reservations must be made at the dive center Greenwichdiving.
These visits are part of the activities that have been scheduled to unveil the Serra Gelada Natural Park and its littoral environment. The natural area hides more than 80% of its treasures under water, hence its marine richness.
The Altea Bay represents a large part of this area and is ideal for bringing people the treasures: along the sea bottom is the Great Barrier Posidonia and endemic species such as pen shells, mollusks with a length close to three feet. The fact that the treasures remain below the surface, hidden from view, is what has motivated the council to promote this activity. It will bring locals and tourists to one of the main environmental values of our region.
