This week at Macca we look into the many rock pools at low tide.

Macca Aquatica

All visitors to Macca are immediately impressed by the ‘in your face’ locals. Featuring high on this list are the seals, penguins, petrels and albatrosses. What we don’t often see and tend to forget about is the marine life.

Several abnormally low tides recently gave us an insight into the abundant life just below the sea surface. There are a surprising variety of creatures are just far enough off the beaches to able to survive the pounding waves. Being able to look at the underwater environment, we get an idea of what the thousands of penguins and seals see as they swim ashore every day.
