What you can admire during the dive in the Sorrento Peninsula

wave

Among the species that contribute most to the marine ecosystem of our territory, Posidonia oceanica stands out for its importance.

This marine plant not only creates vast underwater meadows that provide food, shelter and nursery areas for a diverse range of marine life, but also plays an essential role in protecting coastlines from erosion and maintaining water quality.

Immersed in these prairies, you can enjoy watching small but lively communities of sea urchins, starfish and red sea squirts to the delicate gastropods that find refuge among the leaves and roots hidden under the sand.

The long leaves of Posidonia oceanica serve as anchors for the picturesque seahorses, which cling on with their prehensile tail, often adorned with encrusting epiphytes.

Scorpionfish, wrasses, damselfish and salps hide among the intertwined foliage, creating a complex and interconnected habitat.

If you pay attention you will be able to observe agile mullets, accompanied by schools of salps, lathers and black guarracini, as well as seeing the shimmering silver of the sea bream, the caution of the sea bass and the shyness of the sea bream.

The seabed also comes alive with small groups of serranids, including groupers and sciarrani, as well as brightly colored wrasses that add a touch of cheerfulness to the environment.
