Visited back in 2010, bought tickets as an anniversary gift. Right off the bat you must crawl 20ish feet. Had to fight my claustrophobia, if I left the cave then I would have ruined it for everyone else. And let me tell you... It was...More

Spider cave is part of the Carlsbad Caverns National Park. It is a wild cave, which means you need to have your own light. Be prepared to crawl. The trip is guided by park rangers.

Book this tour early since there are only 8 spots once a week. This tour is for the adventurous spirit who is not claustrophobic, and the tour guides are experienced cavers who are very knowledgeable. It was good that this was the last tour we...More
