Price was o.k. $4 for adults, $3 for child. Watch your head descending steps. Must be able to navigate steps.

There is a nice view at the bottom of the cave. Watch your head going down the stairs though if you are tall.

Cool to see the caves... the water was crystal clear which was the highlight for me. Wouldn't have been as awesome with less visibility because the caves weren't the most spectacular. Just a fun thing to go out and do

We had the triple seat kayak for me, my husband and our 9 year old. They fitted us with a life jacket and helmet. After a short instruction on... More

We rented two individual kayaks for the morning and headed out to the caves with the watermap (several areas are prohibited including the caves and swimming areas). We floated around the only cave accessible for kayaks (only allowed with a guide). The cave is nothing special so we did not miss floating through. Really amazing is the cove next to... More
