Interesting story along with the cave

An interesting story about its discovery and geological information. A very quick, 20 minute guided tour.

The cave walk was very short. They put up electrical lights everywhere thus it was hard to see back into the covered areas. You just walk 100 feet to the other end and turn around and walk back. Even though it is a real cave, it is not a real cave experience.

This is one of our favorite historical spots on the island - we had a great tour guide who made it enjoyable. Obviously be prepared with good walking shoes. And when you're finished, the putt putt & gemstone mining is actually fun (kind of pricey too.) We bought a small gem stone bag that filled an entire small plastic bag... More

The tour is fairly short. You'll see some basic stalactites and stalagmites as well as a "lake" that looks more like a creek. It was the tour guide's first tour of the season, and he kept forgetting everything, which took away from our experience. I probably wouldn't recommend it unless you are getting a package deal. We got the Island... More

My children loved this place. Definitely buy the combo ticket. My kids loved the cave tour and the maze. They wanted to go back through the maze a second time.

My husband and I took our bikes and we rode bike on the island and I am so glad that we stopped here to see the crystal cave. It did not cost much ( $2.00?) and was very interesting and beautiful!

In the last 5 years or so put in Bay has added quite a few tourist attractions. So if you're staying for just a day hit the highlights. Rent a golf cart and drive around enjoy the views. I highly suggest the two cave tours. . They're not that big are not that spectacular but they're still nature on display.

The cave itself is interesting and a neat site-seeing adventure. The steps down into the cave a very steep and may be difficult to maneuver for elderly or small children. Once in the cave, the ground is wet and ceilings are low, but there are clearly marked paths and landmarks. The cave is also fairly well lit so that you... More
