Geocache Description:



Cueva del Agua in Isla Plana



A huge labyrinth of warm water galleries and chambers. This cave has over 2.5 km of explored tunnels. The line currently ends at around a kilometer inside the cave. Maximum depth is twenty meters with an average depth of ten meters on most dives. The cave does not flow any more and is very silty at parts. The entrance cavern zone is suitable for novice cave divers but deeper exploration is serious and requires solid cave diving skills. The entrance area has a memorial plate for divers who have perished in the cave. Some of their equipment is still in the cave as a grim reminder to make sure you are properly trained and equipped. This cave is frequently used for advanced cave diver training. The water temperature is 29 degrees C all year around at depth with a serious thermocline and halocline on shallow depths.

Very dangerous, only for advanced cave divers.

Cueva del Agua in Isla Plana


Esta cueva es una de las más bellas y a la vez más técnica de la peninsula ibérica.
La Cueva del Agua, es una cavidad de fácil acceso, atractiva inicialmente por sus aguas cristalinas cuando esta en reposo y es lo que puede engañar al buceador. Se enturbia con mucha facilidad aún llevando cuidado, suele caer el sedimento lentamente por lo que induce a error al pensar que no es tanto la turbidez, pero a la salida encontraremos "el muro", como denominamos a la turbidez máxima que se alcanza, visibilidad nula.Es una cueva irregular, techo y paredes con numerosas aristas cortantes que pueden dificultad la instalación de hilo guía e incluso cortarlo.
La cueva se encuentra en exploración y existen numerosos hilos guía instalados, estos pueden conducir a zonas poco exploradas e inestables. Por ello es recomendable visitar la cueva acompañado de un guía especialista, los centros de buceo proximos Andromeda y Rivemar en la Azohía disponen de servicios de guías especializados en Cueva del Agua.Cueva del Agua requiere estar bien entrenado en el buceo en cuevas e informarse adecuadamente antes de sumergirse.

¿ATENCION! NO apta para BUCEADORES SIN EXPERIENCIA EN CUEVAS.
