Diving

Gibraltar is located at the entrance of the Mediterranean and has a spectacular marine biodiversity, natural reefs, and more than 35 wrecks that have been part of the Gibraltar artificial reef project since the 1980s, which can be easily accessed from the shore or by boat.

There are wrecks such as 482, a British Royal Navy cable-laying ship that lies upright on a sandy flat at 17 m depth and only 25 m from the shore and is probably the most visited dive site in Gibraltar. Natural reefs harbouring caverns and the elusive grouper are also found within Gibraltar’s marine reserve.
For more information about dive sites and applying for a dive permit, you should contact the Gibraltar Department of Environment, Heritage, and Climate Change.

St. Michael’s Cave

Gibraltar Nature Reserve - Real estate in Gibraltar

St. Michael’s Upper Cave was discovered over 2000 years ago and was used for a variety of purposes: as a fortress in the 18th century, as a hospital, and ammunition store during World War II. However, St. Michael’s Lower Cave was not discovered until 1942. It was an accidental discovery by sappers while digging a tunnel to the lower elevations in order to provide a secondary exit. They discovered a cave with several chambers, which may have remained sealed for 20,000 years.

The cave is extraordinarily beautiful, with sparkles produced by its columns of white, grey, and red stalactites and a cathedral-like appearance with a pulpit, a presbytery, and a pipe-filled organ. This extraordinary and beautiful cave stands out for three reasons: the size of the main chambers, the abundance and variety of calcite formations, and, last but not least, a crystal clear lake more than 35 meters long that is estimated to contain about 45,000 gallons of water (more than 170,000 litres).

You will find, among other caves: Great Rift, Dove Chamber, Wonderland, The Bottomless Pit, Southern Hall, The Lake, St Michael’s Cross, The Garden Gnome, Apache Land, The Baby’s Hand, Mickey Mouse, ET, and Rock Ape. Gibraltar is full of caves. In fact, it is estimated that there are more than 140. Some are coastal or sea caves, others are inland, originating from fissures. Some of the sea caves are located in high areas of the Rock, so they are a testimony of the different sea levels and geological movements of the past. The caves have been explored for several years and numerous fossil remains have been found in them, including the skull of a Neanderthal woman.

Boat excursion to see the dolphins

Everybody knows about the existence of the monkeys that live on the top of the Rock, but visitors who discover the dolphins jumping in the crystal clear waters of the bay of Gibraltar Bay take an indelible memory of this experience. Entire families of dolphins visit the bay and the chances of spotting them are very wide. This is another of the many Gibraltar experiences not to be missed.

You can see the Rock from another point of view, see the East Side caves, and enjoy the views of Gibraltar, Morocco, and Spain. Gibraltar tourism, Gibraltar tourism, Gibraltar tourism, Gibraltar tourism.
