We visited the caves while on an Irie Tours day out. The guided tour is advertised as being 35 minutes long but ended up only taking 20 minutes. If you have never been inside a cave you would find it interesting, but the cave didn't...More

The novelty with these caves is that you have to go up 149 steps to see them (which had an unfortunate effect on some of our elderly party members). There are a few chambers including one with water, one with bats & another with lots...More

These caves were very interesting more because of their history than their size. I am probably spoiled by places like Howe Caverns in terms of the size and extensiveness of formations. But realizing they were used by runaway slaves during the slave trade era is...More

Arrived at 2 with a tour staying right at 2. 9USD to get in per person. Or tour guide was great. A little funny, to the point and very informative. Beware there are bats.... They are calm and don't attack... That I know of

There is a cave. You can walk in it. A guide will tell dutifully about the history. The old indian drawings are outside the cave (indians didn't like caves). Unfortunately the drawings are not visible...

Let me start off by saying I've seen bigger and better caverns before. This is not very big an the tour is short because the area we could get too is not so big. The price isn't too bad at 9 dollars per person. But...More

A short ride from the cruise dock. The walk to the caves is up 49 steps. Once inside you are mesmerized. To my surprise the temperature inside is not cool. There are formations of animals and the mother Mary among the rooms. The guide is...More

Far to expensive. Just pay at the location itself. About $10-12. Enjoy. Definitely worth seeing

I completely understand, I can be claustrophobic at times as well. I really enjoyed the caves and didn't feel claustrophobic inside at all until they switched the lights off. I'm sure you could ask them not to, but I didn't... More

Stairs are a bit narrow but not too difficult to climb. When I went with my wife, the group that came with us had a bunch of elderly people and they were able to all make it. The cave tour takes about 25 minutes from what I... More
