Description: Real caving for everybody! Easy, intermediate and technical day trips...
Real caving for everybody! Easy, intermediate and technical day trips through fabulous, deserted caves. Educational too - we run presentations on local geology and archaeology. We can supply you with all equipment and protective clothing - bring a towel and T-shirt. Dangerous? No! We have an excellent safety record which makes Kuching Caving as safe as shopping. "The best thing we did in Kuching" is the reaction from most of our guests. Western managed. Established 2007.

My partner and I have gone caving with James many times and all I can say is that each time is different from the last. Definitely a must-do if you really want a more adventurous Kuching experience. Our last visit was on 1 July 2015.

From when my first email contact with James on arriving in Kuching, then he, Gary and a local guide made sure everything worked seamlessly to get me on to an excursion (at only 2 days' notice, and booking for just one person), enjoy a great day out, and delivered back to my hotel with lots of stories to share with...

I'd never properly been caving before but so glad that we allocated a day to spend in the caves with James, who was the best guide ever! James is a cave expert and it's really not one of those adventures where you just "do" (though there were challenging parts), but also -learn-. Learned so much about the caves, rock formations,...

I've done caving trips in Peninsular M'sia and the Philippines before - but must say this was a uniquely different experience. James' love for the caves was evident (and infectious), and he made a huge effort to teach us about the geology, wildlife and cultural history of the caves. I even remarked to my friend that it felt like we... More

Amazing is an understatement! For first timers like us, we are already "addicted" to caving! It is infectious especially for nature lovers. For caving in Kuching, trust only these cavemen, James and Paul! They are sincere, honest, punctual and damn fun! Safety is their priority... Oh yes they are like walking encyclopedia! Awesome mampus! A 10 star! See you all... More

James was amazing and this was easily the highlight of our trip. My wife and I saw 2 different caves, it wasn't the dinky kind of cave that hundreds of people walk through every day. This was the real deal. He provided all the necessary equipment and was knowledgable about everything. It was clear, this is his passion and we... More

My family and I opted for the Lobang Batu Tour + Dinner, and had a great time with Paul as our guide (expat). After hotel pickup, Paul brought us to the office, where we were given a thorough safety briefing on our experience ahead. Equipment was well maintained and there was a toilet with running water in their office. Plenty... More
