The Chapada Diamantina Caves Tour (Poço Azul & Poço Encantada) is the type of tour for those who want to connect with nature, diving in crystal clear waters in the middle of caves lit by sunlight creating a beautiful show of light and color.
Chapada Diamantina Caves Tour Description:
We start our trip from Lençois at 08:00 am and get to Poço Encantado (Enchanted Cave) after a two-hour drive. After getting our equipment (helmet and flashlight) we prepare for the descent.
After a couple of steps, we enter the cave by climbing down a small wooden ladder. We make our way on uneven ground but there is always a security rope that one can hold onto. After 100 meters the whole magic of the Enchanted Cave appears before us with its crystal clear, cobalt blue waters.
Between April and September, Chapada Diamantina Caves become even more spectacular as direct sunbeams enter through an opening in the upper part of the cave to meet the water surface.
By car, we continue our trip to Poço Azul (Blue Cave) where we have lunch. Also, you can try local specialties from a buffet. After lunch, we will go to the cave of Poço Azul.
At the end of a short descent, we climb down a long wooden ladder to a deck, where we prepare ourselves for snorkeling in the blue crystal clear waters.
Equipped with a life jacket, snorkeling gear, and underwater flashlight, we explore this magical cave by floating on its surface. The view underwater is spectacular and we can occasionally observe small fish swimming by.
