Our first post has to be about gratitude. A huge thank you to all our friends who contributed to a fantastic debut season despite the innumerable challenges we faced!
We are so happy to have witnessed children of different nationalities feel seaweed under their feet for the first time. Families who felt a bit apprehensive about the sea fought their fears and enjoyed an unforgettable five-hour experience on board our trusted classic wooden boat “Pascual”. Friends learned about the precious and fragile posidonia that populates our coast, the habitat of sea urchins, the frightful voracity of the fish we fed and the methodical construction of the octopus’ home with pebbles and seashells as small but reassuring walls.
We will remember until next season the faces of delight and astonishment during our guided snorkelling tour as we observed marine life; the surprise of the younger ones on board as our Pirate Morgan appeared and asked for help in retrieving her long lost Treasure, and the new friendships forged over lunch in “Pascual” anchored in Sea Margalides or Cala Comte.
Our excursion is about enjoying the sea and in doing so learning of its importance. In our lives, in our society and in our future. We echo the words of Baba Dioum that preside our landing page and guide our mission: “In the end we will conserve only what we love; we will love only what we understand and we will understand only what we are taught”. Meet the Sea wants to invite you all to spend a few hours at sea where we combine fun and learning in truly privileged settings like Conejera, Cala Comte, Punta Galera, Ses Margalides and the western coast of Ibiza.
We want to thank Joan and the Pascual crew for providing a boat always in great shape, our beloved “Pascual”. Tim and KT for their implication with MTS from the start, Maria José and Andrea for their kind welcome when we were only a project, Gaby for her interest and support, Santana and Pepe for their advice and their years of experience. In particular, to all that visited us on board during the months of July and August and who humbled us with their words of gratitude and appreciation. We only hope to see you again at sea!
