Green Cave on island Vis, another natural wonder of Croatia
The Green Cave is absolutely gorgeous and spacious, the depth varies from 3 to 5 meters, so the boat can get in which is allowing you to jump into the sea right from inside the cave. You can once again take advantage of the snorkeling equipment we have on board and explore the sea bottom of the cave.
When entering the cave, it is visible that it’s character derives from the fissure on the top of the cave through which a light passes and leaves stunning marks in the sea. The beam of light enters the sea and shines back reflecting from the cave bottom. The legend of the cave states that if you dive through the beam of light you will live one hundred years.
The green color of the cave, based on which the cave got its name, is due to the green algae growing on the ceiling and the walls of the cave reflecting down into the sea. As you dive under the water is rather dark except for the glows of light coming from the cave entrance and from the light beam coming from the ceiling above. These lights give you the unique experience when snorkeling inside of the Green Cave.
After experiencing unique feeling of swimming and snorkeling inside the cave we exit outside of the Green Cave. Another popular activity regarding the Green Cave, besides diving through the beam of light, is to climb on top of the Cave larger entrance. Many of the people visiting Green Cave take on this challenge of climbing the top of the Cave entrance but they soon realize that the only way back down is to jump in the sea below.
There is no legend involved in climbing and jumping off the Green Cave entrance so it is understandable that you may not wish to take on this experience. However you will most definitively see some that climb the cave and are force to take that 10 meter jump into the clear sea below.
