Very cool place to see if your near here. We had stopped here to take the tour and it was worth it! Had a great time and learned a lot also. Our tour guide was Abby and was very knowledgeable about the area and the cave. It's a little pricey for the tour ($16 for adults $12 for kids). It's... More

I've been on this tour twice. It makes a great outing for people visiting Bloomington, IN, appropriate for older children, family, or a neat date. The tours run regularly, so there isn't too long a wait until you get on- usually they go every half hour, depending on how busy it is. The descent to the cave is a bit... More

I start every cave review with this tip- parents, please think twice before bringing small children into a cave; it's dark, damp, and can be very scary to them. When they spend the entire tour crying, it ruins the tour for everyone else. Also, caves are damp and slippery- if they're small enough that they have to be carried, it... More

After going down a steep incline about 400 feet you board a boat and tour the cave. The cave it self does not have very many formations but what made this cave a must see was the tour guide. He was very knowledgeable played a flute which was fantastic. And also demonstrated cave thunder.

There is a steep hill to go down to the boat dock. Once down, you take a boat tour through the cavern. There were not many formations, but the guide, Aaron was very knowledgable. He gave several demonstrations including total darkness (normal), cave thunder which caused an amazing echo, and to top it off, he played his indian flute which... More

Nice facility.....great tour and guide. It's a walking and boat tour which makes it very interesting. Not good for people who have trouble climbing stairs. Nice gift shop

While spending time in Indiana visiting we decided to take our grand children on a day trip. I would recommend this trip highly. The walk down to the boat is steep but easy. The 1hour boat trip kept my teenagers interested and they enjoyed it. After the boat we did the gem sluice and both the boys loved finding their... More

The grounds are beautiful but there isn't much to see. High school kids were working and couldn't answer any questions about the cave. They all knew the script but that was about all. Tour was in a boat and it was fun but very short. Glad I went but wouldn't go back again.

Very reasonably priced, this water tour of the cave was fascinating. Our pre-teen son wants to take his scout troop for the overnight experience. Our guide Will could not have been better at mixing humor and educational facts. I would highly recommend this for all ages.
