This is a very tiny underwater cave with not much to see. Don't waste your time unless you've never seen a bat.

This was a part of tour to Lucayan Park. The tour guide we had made the walk interesting telling us about the different plants that were used for medicine. He took us into two underground caves that had platforms to stand on. He provided us with information on each of the caves we visited- interesting information regarding the area.

This was part of a tour by Bahamas Interisland Eco Tours. We really enjoyed these caves and learned a ton! Jeff, our guide did a great job pointing out some of the wonderful sights here. This cave was small but wonderful. An unexpected find! This is part of Lucayan National Park and NOT a tourist area. It's nice, but there... More

My boyfriend and I got a voucher to go see the caves. I phoned and booked the tour. I even clarified twice with the lady on the phone of the time that we were getting picked up and where. She said to be in the lobby at 10:45 and if we went there at 10:35, that we would be too... More

Ben's Cave is one of two caves located directly across the road from the entrance to Gold Rock Beach on Grand Bahama Island. Since we were already going to the beach we made a quick visit to the caves. It will only take you 5 minutes per cave but for a very nominal entrance fee, it's well worth a stop.

While the history of the caves are interesting, it was just a very brief tour. Not worth a trip out unless it is one of a couple stops on a tour. You walk down a spiral staircase, look around for a moment, then the guide walked you out. It was pretty, but considering that I've done more intense cave /spelunking... More

Did this tour as part of a cruise ship excursion along with Gold Rock Beach. The caves for the tour are a small area that you walk down into and right back up again - via a spiral staircase for one and regular stairs for the other (Burial Cave) - but the peaceful walk through the National Park area and...

This was a stop on the hike through Lucayan National Park. After taking a metal spiral staircase down to the cave, we saw pretty water that looked stagnant, fish, and bats (yipes!). Our guide told us it was the longest underwater cave that had been mapped, and leads to the ocean. Apparently with the right permission, tools, and experience, it... More
