Shortly before the summer holidays began, the Marilles staff organised a team day to learn the basics of underwater photography, away from our computers and closer to the sea we want to preserve. Just a few metres from the rocks, we photographed Posidonia, crabs, anemones, sea urchins, and incredible and colourful underwater landscapes. It is essential to dive to appreciate the richness that lies underwater and to be even more aware of the need to preserve it. We encourage you to dive into the water this summer too.

With just a pair of goggles, a snorkel, fins, and a camera, we were underwater photographers for a day. Thanks to photographer Silvia Mus, to the cameras provided by Olympus, and to the Hotel Cap Rocat, we can show you our first snapshots.
