Interesting history but small cave...

This is a good place to visit on a hot day. Interesting to hear the history of the cave, especially as related to the Battle of Lake Erie.

Being claustrophobic I didn't ever see myself going in a cave. I would say for those in the same situation as myself this is a great place to start. There's enough lighting and short tour so you don't feel like you're in a cave.

You reach the mouth of the cave by descending a number of steep steps. At the bottom, make sure to duck for a while, it opens to a large room. The knowledgable guides will tell you all about the history of the cave and the part it played in the Battle of Lake Erie. It was relatively inexpensive and a... More

If you've never been to a cave, you should go. Fractured cave which means you do have to duck at times. Stairs are narrow and you do have to step sideways near the bottom. There is a hand rail though. Usual talk about Stalagamites and Stalagtites. Path for visitors is roped off on either side but our guide walked on... More

Not what I was expecting at all. I've been to other caves that were by far superior. This was small, slippery and not worth the money. Our guide was rude. This is a family vacation destination. A few families had young children. They were not silent as the guide had apparently wanted them to be. When one family left, he... More

I always enjoy seeing caves and I knew that this was a small cave, after all, PIB is a small island, so how big could the cave be huh? It was worth the $8 and the staff is great, I don't know if I would spend the $8 to go back again, but it was definitely worth the one-time visit.... More
