The Elephant cave is an underwater sight of stunning beauty and unique history for both experienced and amateur divers.
The cave got its name from the discovery of fossilized remains of elephants that belong to the new species ‘elephas chaniensis’ that are estimated to be 50-60 thousand years old. Along with the elephant’s fossils, there are fossilized deer bones that belonged to both normal and dwarf deer.
The cave is absolutely magical, as it is naturally decorated with white and red stalactites and stalagmites creating an enchanted environment.
The’ Seal’ or ‘Fokia’ is an outstanding cavern which allows the diver to experience several other smaller caverns within one dive. This is a huge cavern; so big, that RHIB boats can actually take divers inside this very interesting cave/cavern. This dive site got its name ‘Fokia’, which means seal in Greek, as there have been sightings of the Mediterranean Seal at this spot.
