The entrance to the cavern is through what use to be a pond. It was formed when the bottom of it collapsed. You walk down a long concrete ramp, into the entrance and to the boat. The entire tour is on a boat. This is a nice relaxing tour with a very knowledgeable guide.

In this natural cavern -you have the longest navigable underground river. You go on these little boats, it's kind of fun, and kind of goofy. If you're into roadside America type things, you'll love this, It's really cool, (and cool, a nice respite from summer heat). If you're claustrophobic, you may want to take a pass.

Boat rides on the hour this time of year. At other times, they may have all four boats taking tours at the same time about 15 minute apart, so my husband and I felt very lucky that we got a relaxing one-hour tour alone, even though the boats will hold 17 people. We had a wonderful tour guide who was... More

Very cool cavern! Our boat tour guide was very knowledgable and could answer any of our questions. The cavern was an excellent condition as well. We did have to wait an hour for the next tour and there wasn't really anything to do so that was boring, but still worth the wait. Very fun place to stop with your family!... More

Our tour guide really seemed to enjoy his job and was able to explain the history of the cave and the area. He made the tour interesting and pointed the major points of the cave. This is a boat ride tour, darkness at times and peace and quite can be found. we did not get to see any blind fish... More

Just a hop, skip and a jump from Indianapolis. Brought 6 kids, age 2-12 and had lots of fun. Walk down to cave is steep and slippery, but don't let that stop you. Boat ride is informative and fun. Great way to start cave visits. Loved the demonstrations that our Guide gave us on darkness, cave thunder and especially when... More

Extremely interesting experience to be below ground on a River---excellent guide and smooth floating. Peaceful and informative...the walk down and back to/from the cavern opening could be a physical challenge for some so I would ask if there is an option if that is an issue. Will go back with others for sure!
