This is an incredible gorge that you must swim into. Fair warning: the water is freezing and the current is swift - especially if it's been raining - so be sure to use a float, no matter how strong a swimmer you are. It will be worth it when you arrive at a gorgeous (ha ha) waterfall into the grotto.... More

LOVED Titou Gorge! A hike of a few hundred yards on dirt & rock paths takes you to the entrance to the gorge. An easy and fun trail walk (barely a "hike") for most, but not for people who would have trouble with walking a few hundred yards on a dirt/rock fire road or trail. The water in the gorge... More

when i could not feel my legs after hiking boiling lake, this was my lifesaver. it felt amazing to swim in the cold water and the waterfall was stunning. i did not do any fancy climbing, just relaxed and enjoyed the view. do not skip this. i repeat, do not skip this.

Perfect for after the boiling lake hike. Mask, snorkel and a dry bag for valuables and flotation worked great. Don't forget to look up and then climb to the 2nd fall.

My husband, mother in law, father in law, and I came to the gorge on an excursion from a HAL ship. The ride was pretty smooth and the walk up to the gorge was easy ( a little uneven but do-able for those who are able to walk on their own). When we got to the top it didn't seem... More

absolutely fantastic. One of the locations for the Pirates of the Caribbean films. You swim through a narrow gorge with steep walls on both sides to a small waterfall.

Take a swim up the gorge to the waterfall after the boiling lake hike. Would be nice, but very cold, without the hike too. You can climb up the first waterfall and jump off into the pool. Also, if you have a guide to show you where to jump from, you can jump off the cliff straight into the gorge.

While on our Nature Isle Jewel Tour, we stopped here and it was truly magical! Do wear a safety belt and take water shoes. Takes some walking to get to site as well as exertion for swimming. You go down into the opening and back into the gorge itself while swimming upstream. Then you get to the waterfall/waterhead and it... More

Definitely visit! We were lucky and arrived just before a large group did, otherwise it would gave been quite crowded. Beautiful swim and incredible end. Not a long trip. If you're an adventurer, go to the end of the walking trail, hop over the guardrails and you can jump into the gorge (about a 20 ft jump). Takes your breath... More

This is a must see. Hire a life vest even if a strong swimmer. Water shoes are advisable. The experience and view is great. A highlight of my 14 day cruise. One of the most magical place I have visited.
