Nat Geo Day Tour: Marine Treasures of Mallorca, the Posidonia Oceanica

Inspired by the work of National Geographic's Pristine Seas project, which aims to protect the last wild places in our oceans, this National Geographic Day Tour offers a unique opportunity to explore some of the most beautiful and unspoiled Mediterranean waters by kayak, accompanied by a marine biologist and learn about the importance of Posidonia Oceanica.

Posidonia Oceanica is more than just a seagrass. In the words of Manu San Félix, a member of the National Geographic Pristine Seas Project: "Posidonia is the architect of the Mediterranean marine ecosystem." It is an essential part of this ecosystem with broad implications for ecology, coastal stability, tourism, and even climate regulation. Efforts to conserve and protect this important species are crucial to maintaining the health and balance of the Mediterranean environment. This humble plant plays a vital role in oxygenating seawater, helping to stabilize sediment, and providing a habitat for many species of fish and other marine life.

Accompanied by a marine biologist, you will paddle your kayak a distance of approximately 2.5 miles around the Marine Protected Area of the Malgrats Islands, a biodiverse ecosystem which is home to dolphins, fish, birds, algae and more. The protected zone was established to safeguard the surrounding marine habitat, an important location for Posidonia Oceanica. Exploring mostly by kayak with an optional snorkel stop, you'll see the Posidonia meadows for yourself, with explanations from the marine biologist about the impact this seagrass has on the Mediterranean and the wider world.

Learn how each of us can play a part in protecting the Posidonia meadows, by raising awareness of their role in the battle against global warming, as featured in the National Geographic documentary, 'Pristine Seas: The Power of Protection'.
