Touring a cave from a boat is vastly different from any other cave tour you will do. This is a calm, short trip down a river that goes into a cave. The cave ceilings are quite low and you will have to stoop down in...More

The tour was short but had very interesting storylines. Very nice nature trails and exploration area for small children.

If you've always wanted to prowl around in a cave, while in a very safe boat with a knowledgeable guide, this is your chance. The views are quite spectacular.

The guide was very friendly and helpful. The boat ride is interesting but as others have said the ride is short. It would be nice if they could expand the tour. The area is very pretty and would recommend spending some time hiking around, even...More

We decided to make a stop on our road trip. It was a nice break, however, for the price the tour is shorter than expected. The history given on the walk down to the boat loading area was very good and the guides seemed well-educated...More

The cave is pretty neat, but the tour is far too short for the amount of money you pay. Half the tour is the walk down there. Then once you get down to the cave entrance, you spend some time going over all the dos...More

My son loves walking the trails and climbing the waterfall. The boat tour is interesting. My favorite part is the gift shop. Such unique gifts. I go all the time when I am looking for a unique gift and they wrap it for you there.

Paulette, the boat ride would be difficult but by all means give them a call....super nice folks. There are some paved trails around the cave, and a cool bridge that would be very accessible but make sure your brakes are in... More

Hi, It is a little bit of a rough terrain (with a slight slope and dirt) after you get off the bridge to the mouth of the cave, but it can be done. Once you get to the entrance of the cave, I think there is a wheelchair... More
