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.

There is a short hike thru the forest from the parking area, but it is worth the walk. You do need decent shoes as flip flops just don't work well and you will need water shoes later. You can jump into the gorge or walk in-either way water shoes are needed as the exit is very rocky. Cold water and... More

What a pretty place, we swam through the gorge up to two waterfalls. We rented the life vests even though we are good swimmers and we were glad that we did. The water is cool and deep, and you are swimming against the current. The life vest made it a lot easier to swim and kept was warm as well.... More

It's cold, yes, but get over it and get in. This place is incredible. I recommend water shoes, and maybe a wetsuit, mask and a snorkel wouldn't hurt either. It helps if you're a strong swimmer because you're going against the river. They give you floaties for a reason, wear them! Once you climb over the little fall, you'll realize... More

This was one of my favorite sights, BUT you have to be willing to swim back through the gorge or it would not get my 5 stars. It's a nice cool pool with a rock bottom to the average sightseer. However, if you swim through the gorge to the back, it's like something you see only in the movies (in... More

This was part of a three stop tour via Bumpling Tours, who i highly recommend. It was not as cold as I had anticipated, pretty crowded. About 200 yard swim in a increasing current (from the falls, no doubt). Can climb up part of falls (3 or 4 feet) and jump out from there. Easy swim back. I would suggest... More
