What a great thing to do. Take the kids. unbelievable. Bit pricey but oh well. Walk carefully, it's slippery and watch your head. Low ceilings. LOL

“Amazing and historic at the same time, it's hard to believe such caves exist.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013 via mobile

Our guide was well versed in the historical and geologic aspects of the cave. Our group was at Put in Bay for the historic Bicentennial Reenactment of the Lake Erie Battle with Commodore Oliver Hazard Perry. Visiting the caves was a bonus, due to the fact Perry and his troops reportedly took refuge in the caves for a source of fresh, clean water to avoid illness. History buffs that we are, this tour was a great adjunct to our visit to the island.

“Do It Once, Then You're Good.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2013

The cave is fun to learn about and explore. There are great stories around it. the only problem was the $8 price. I'd return and take friends if the price was $4 or $5, but for 8, I'm good with just once.

“Better Than We Thought”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

This place looked like the typical tourist trap. We decided to go after reading about it in the local paper. The tour was short and inexpensive, but it was very cool in more ways than one. We both liked it much more than we thought we would.

“Save your time and money”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

We have been to many caves, so decided to take some relatives who had never been to a cave. I was so dissapointed in this one. Its a one level cave, only decends about 40 ft and then you walk in circle for about 20 min and then exit for 8$. Nice staff and good history lesson about the area, but not planning on a return trip here.
