  • Aquarium Cap Blanc, Ibiza

    Recommended by Ibiza Spotlight

    Centro Yoga Om, Vilanova i la Geltru Image

     

    Aquarium Cap Blanc", better known as "The lobster cave", owes its name to the traditional use it had in the past as a lobster vivarium.
    In the past, the cave was adapted for use as a fish and lobster reservem with five water inlets, still conserved today, which guarantee correct water circulation and oxygen levels.
    From the reserve, lobsters were exported to the markets of Barcelona and other cities. Also, fishermen kept here the live specimens they had caught but not sold, to sell in times of bad weather when fishing was impossible.
    In 1989 the cave was converted into the aquarium wich we know today, where visitors can find a wide selection of the species of Mediterranean fish from the waters around Ibiza, such as the majestic dusky grouper or the discrete rainbow wrasse and damsel fish.
    At present, the installations are used by the "CREM", the Marine Recuperation Centre, so there are often sea animals recovering here, especially turtles. This practices was carried out even before the local authorities became responsible for it.
    As a curious detail, it is believed that years ago, the "vell marí" (Monachus monachus) inhabited the cave and it seems that its extinction was caused by local fishermen´s nets.

    Comments:
    "Both my children are confident swimmers due to Ruths gentle and patient teaching methods. They were both quite scared to begin with but she helped them to feel comfortable in the water and more importantly under the water; they started swimming when they felt ready to let go of her! Now I have two little fishes!" (CL, May 2013)

    "Ruths swimming lessons are one of the highlights of the childrens summer holidays and they talk about her all year long: certainly they learn more in the dozen lessons they do with her in Ibiza than in the rest of the year in London. She provides a good focus on technique and style while making the lessons fun and enjoyable for even the most reticent little swimmer. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend her"
    (Vanessa C de Enserro 2013)
