The sea is full of life, but how do you get to see all those animals? By bringing them to the surface! With a large trawl you go fishing in the surf. You and the rest of the group can pull the net through the water with a rope. You will not get wet, because the pulling is done on the beach. The guide ensures that the net stays in the water. It's always exciting what you find in it. Of course, all the animals, after they have been viewed, go back to the sea. Start time: check the Ecomare website for the current times. The excursions last 1.5 to 2 hours.
