The Shrimp Cave is a deep dive, carried out inside a long and narrow corridor, which is only suitable for experienced and certified cave divers.
The slit entrance is about 35mts, giving access to a narrow corridor only 1mt wide and 25mts long. In the end, we have a large cave where we can observe big Congers and authentic clouds of Shrimp-Narval, as well as some species of nudibranchs.
Although it is called Cave, it is, in fact, a cavern with access to an airspace. Immersion inside the cave, due to its depth, is only possible with equipment for technical diving.
As we exit and turn to the left, it is possible to climb gradually to perform the decompression steps along a wall having a top at about 8mts of depth.
