We wanted to use up some time driving from Madison to Vincennes and came here. The waiting area/shop is not very exciting or interesting but the tour certainly is. The guide was very good and seemed to enjoy taking a mixed group of folk along for the ride. It's quite cool down there so a jumper maybe useful. You sit... More

We live just a few miles from the cave, but my wife and daughter had never been. The cave tour was a lot of fun and everyone was friendly and informative. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and very patient about answering my 8-yr old daughter's questions. Our daughter loved the "mining for gems" souvenir at the gift shop also. I... More

Took my 10 year old granddaughter, who had never been in a cave. It was a pleasant trip on a boat in an underground river. While it certainly qualifies as a cave, I was wishing that there were more formations. Little in the way of stalagmites and stalactites here. Friendly staff.

I went by myself on this tour, as my husband doesn't like caves. It was really intimidating to float over 21 feet of water on a boat with no life jackets. For all of you who were kids in the mid-70s, I felt like I was in an episode of "The Land of the Lost." However, it was an awesome... More

We took a tour of the Blue Spring Caverns. It was very interesting. We had a great guide in the front of our boat explaining all the details of what we were seeing. It was nice in cool in the cave. The trip lasted about 45 minutes. They have a small gift shop as well on the property which is... More

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.
