Grotta dei Gamberi

Length: 320 m
Depth: 0 - 44 m
Difficulty:

Certainly one of the most famous caves in the Mediterranean sea.
The interest to this dive is due to the countless amount of shrimps that live inside the cave. Thousands of shrimps populate the walls of the cave and reflect an intense orange colour from the lights of our torches.
The cave is also very interesting because of the presence of lobsters and especially of cicadas, a crustacean that is becoming increasingly rare in Italian waters. The presence of shrimps, as well as giving the name to the cave, is also one of the reasons that make this cave so attractive to divers.

The cave entrance is located at the base of the cliff that represents a prolongation of Punta Galera. During the descent you will pass through different scenographic environments: towards the coast you will observe a pebbly seabed full of dreamfish, Mediterranean rainbow wrasses and violets; towards the deep blue you will see a beautiful landscape of posidonia.
