This cave tour is almost 2 hours. The give a warning about claustrophobia as there are several sections of ducking and narrowness. This cave is way warmer than other caves in the area. About 80F and over 90% humid, so feels like a sauna. Neat...More

We have visited several caves; Mammoth in KY, Carlsbad in NM, Crystal and Perry’s Cave on South Bass Island and one I can’t remember the name of in Slovenia. This was by far the most impressive. This cave is loaded with living formations! Unusual ones...More
