Anhumas Abyss (Abismo Anhumas)

Tour Details

The Anhumas Abyss tour is one of the best-known attractions in the city of Bonito (MS), more precisely in the Serra da Bodoquena region.

This is one of the most incredible caves on the entire planet, renowned among the most experienced divers. Every visitor is amazed by the immensity of the cave.

The Abyss Anhumas draws attention for its beauty and delivers a unique experience, combining abseiling, floating, and diving in pure, crystal-clear water.

Due to its geological formations, the Anhumas Abyss in Bonito/MS has only one way of entering and exiting the cave: through a crack. To do this, you must descend 72 meters in height via an electric rappel to a floating deck, and this is only the first thrill of the tour.

Besides the subsequent descent and ascent, and the dazzle of the surrounding nature and riparian forest, it is still possible to say that it is worth it for you:

  • Take beautiful photos of the Anhumas Abyss;
  • Enjoy the look of the floating platform;
  • Take a guided tour by inflatable boat, and learn more about the cave and its formation;
  • Experience floating with the Neoprene suit;
  • Diving in the crystal clear lake.

?? Attention, tourist!

Due to the conservation of Bonito's many natural wonders, there are a limited number of places to access the city's tours.

Knowing this, do not waste time: it is essential to prepare the itinerary of your trip as soon as possible.

Main information about the Abyss Anhumas

In general, visiting the Anhumas Abyss is a recent tour option. After all, it was only really opened to tourists in 1999, having been in operation for two decades.

Its discovery is also recent, having happened in 1970. After a fire in the region, a farmhand from a local ranch explored the place further. Thus, he managed to find, lost in the middle of the forest, what would become one of the most beautiful tourist spots in the state.

It is also worth remembering that, despite the initial difficulties of access, it is a safe ride, with no serious accidents recorded since it opened.

With its unique visuals, the Anhumas Abyss tour is an incredible opportunity to connect with nature. And even children can enjoy the incredible experience, with all the necessary safety.

In general, it is an adventure of exploration, and it is something new and invigorating in many people's lives. Therefore, every moment is important.

Floating on the clear waters of the lake creates an incredible feeling of flying over an underwater forest. And with the "city" of limestone cones that exist there, the experience is maximized even more.

? Floating in the lagoon

For the vast majority of visitors to Bonito (MS), the highlight of the Anhumas Abyss tour is precisely the lagoon flotation. And the best of all is that it is not necessary to know how to swim, since the visitor will be wearing flotation equipment.

The Neoprene suit is also a fundamental item and is included in the package, providing comfort and safety during the trip.

It is a garment made of synthetic rubber, which, besides being waterproof, is also a thermally insulating material. Thus, the water temperature does not matter, because the body will always be kept at its ideal level.

Those who opt for this tour obviously cannot dive deeper into the water, but this is not such a disadvantage. After all, the crystal clear waters of this mysterious lagoon offer an incredible 60 meters of visibility.

So even if you are on the surface, you can get a nice view of the limestone cones that are submerged.

 

? Diving in the lagoon

Another alternative tour worth exploring at Abyss Anhumas is diving in the lake, an incredible experience. Although floating is more common among visitors, only by diving you can see the site's attractions more clearly.

In total, the lake is 80 meters deep, and even those without experience can enjoy this option.

In this case, the maximum limit that unlicensed visitors can reach is about 8 meters. The guides will give a practical and theoretical lesson on the process, giving total diving safety.

On the other hand, those who are certified can go much further and reach a depth of 18 meters. At this level, you can already see the gigantic limestone cones, which are a separate attraction of the tour.

As the water is crystal clear, those who are doing the flotation can already have a great experience with the cones. But of course, scuba diving shows much more about these magnificent formations present in the Anhumas Abyss in Bonito (MS).

 

Take beautiful pictures

It is inevitable not to take advantage of the place to take beautiful pictures and register the moment.

Fortunately, this is a permitted activity in the cave and great pictures can be taken. In some areas, however, because it is darker, you need at least a smartphone with a good camera and flash power.

An important tip is to opt for waterproof machines, to make records underwater.

Boat ride

Before entering the water, there is an inflatable boat ride across the Anhumas abyss lake. This allows you to get to know some areas of the cave better and listen to the guide's explanations about the formations that exist there.

As you can already tell, this is a limestone cave, with huge cones adorning the area. This is the time to enjoy a quieter boat ride and learn before exploring.

Abyss Anhumas: Floating or diving?

Those who visit Abyss Anhumas can choose either to dive or float in the lake. Unfortunately, due to all the access logistics, it is not feasible to do both types of exploration during the same tour.

Experienced, certified divers are able to take advantage of the deeper water. However, due to the wide visibility, even those who are floating on the surface can observe almost all of what is underwater.

So, you don't need to dive to have a magnificent experience in the Abyss. Those who wish to go further, however, even without experience can submerge a little and broaden their view.

In any case, regardless of the activity chosen, the tour through Anhumas manages to convey a unique connection with nature.
