Neat and kinda freaky to be in a 7 foot cave at sea/lake level. Other activities at the location to keep you occupied if you have to wait for the hop on/off bus.

The tour guide was very knowledgeable about the cave and was careful to caution when to watch your head. Very interesting to see, though you do need to be careful of steep stairs and low ceilings since it is a cave.

Very interesting although a bit difficult for some to manouver, with low ceiling, wet uneven ground and tricky stairs. BUT--it's a cave!! The guide was excellent, extremely well informed.

Perry's Cave was a quick, yet interesting and unique experience. Once you get to the bottom of the steep, skinny stairs, you're about 50ft. below ground-level and among stalagmites & stalactites that are really old and neat to look at. The guide shows you around as you stay on the "trail" and tells facts and tidbits about your surroundings. The... More

I have literally been going here since I was five years old. (31 now) I've always enjoyed the cave. I always make it a stop if I'm with someone who hasn't been to the island before. The only problems I have with it is it seems to be getting smaller. I remember when it was really tall, and HUGE. However,... More

We bought the 4 attraction package. We did the Butterfly House, Maze, and Mini Golf. The kids really enjoyed the maze and the golfing. The butterfly house was a miss. We didn't have time to get back to see the cave, you have to stop by and get a time to go through, it's a guided tour. *Tip* You don't... More

It was my first time seeing a cave of any sort. It was a tad boring as many of the caves features had been destroyed long ago. Our group had about 20 people and one highly annoying tour guide who was making jokes and talked about things non related to the cave. She was unable to some answer questions about... More

We toured Perry's Cave August 6, 2014. We found the tour rather unimpressive and really not worth the admission price. The tour lasted maybe 30 minutes and was just one large underground room. All the stalagmites or stalactite’s had been removed or damaged years ago. I do not recommend this tour unless you’re looking for a cool place on a... More

Unfortunately, my husband and I did not vist this Cave or the Crystal Cave. To see the cave's is a separate fee. In the past you just walked thru with a group. Since we have visited the cave's in the past this was not a must see for us. If you have never been here before then I recommend that... More
