Here at the Gruta Azul (translated from the Portuguese: "Blue Cave"), the maximum depth is around 17 meters. When descending we can see a cave at about 13 meters.
This cave has three possible entrances, giving way to two inner circuits that divers typically explore.
The cave is quite accessible, but be careful to be in close contact with your guide during the dive. Not only for safety reasons but also because he will point to many points of interest. One is the Sting rays that sometimes you find close to the cave walls.
One of the most interesting features of this cave is the bright blue colour that brights when looking at the entrance due to the light-dark contrast from the outside to the inside of the cave.
