01.SUP & Pool Tour "Cave & SUP Light""
Marimbus/Poço Azul ( Blue Pool)
A 3 hours trip through the Marimbus mini Pantanal framed by the Serra do Sincora mountains. The wetlands region is formed by the convergence of two rivers, 'Rio Santo Antônio' and 'Rio Utinga'. It is particulary fascinating to take a bath in that river contemplating the fauna and flora around. On the way, you can occasionally see birds and Capuchin monkeys. After arriving to Poço Azul at midday we take a break to lunch and try the local specialities from a buffet at the local restaurant. At the end of a short descent, we will climb down a longer wooden ladder to a deck, where we will prepare ourselves for snorkeling in the blue crystal clear waters of the 'Poço Azul' cave. Equipped with a life jacket, snorkeling gear and underwater flashlight, we will explore this magical cave by floating on its surface. The view under the water is spetacular and occasionally it´s possible to observe small, blind cave fish .
For culture and history interested people, there is the option of visiting the old miners town of 'Igatú' instead of one of the caves. 'Igatú' looks a bit like an open-air museum and is used repeatedly as film scenery. From the quiet center of town, we will pass by the church of 'São Sebastião' with its 'Byzantine'-style cemetery. After walking through an area of huge eucalyptus trees, we reach the stone ruins, which are the remains of Igatú´s booming past during the diamond rush. Nearby we can visit “Galeria Arte & Memória.” This is an open-air museum displaying objects used during the diamond rush as well as a small and fine gallery displaying contemporary art. On the veranda, we enjoy the nice view while drinking a cup of coffee or tasting locally made ice cream or one of the delicious pancakes. For a little adventure, we can visit an old mining tunnel called, “Mina Brejo-Verruga.” We will be guided by one of the old miners who will give us a feel for the atmosphere and working conditions of the mines. In the middle of the tunnel, we will arrive at a larger hall where clay figures honor the miners who died there.
