Thanks for keeping this attraction going. We had a good time, and it was just the amount of time we had to spend. The trails were well maintained and pretty, the history of the cave was informative, and our guide made it a lot of fun. Your staff was friendly, and appeared to really care about making our visit something... More

set on a beautiful property, this cave using a unique method of touring, a boat. the cave has a live river running thru it allowing the tour to be made on a boat, and is worth a visit.

I was excited that I stumbled upon this place! My daughter loved this as well. Finding her gems was the favorite along with a ride inside the cave. She already asking to go back.

Not strenuous, but a nice walk, with water rushing out from under rocks at one point and lots of 'blue holes' full of blue water. Lots of shade and the trails are kept clean. But wear shoes you don't mind getting dirty - its fun getting off the trail!

Really pretty! Nice and cool. Our tour guide was very nice as well! You do have to go under a really low (like REALLY low) rock, so I wouldn't recommend if you are claustrophobic and can't bend down very well.

We have visited a couple other caverns in different locations, but this one by boat on a river was very interesting & fun. Had a great guide who knew her stuff.
