Our guide made all the difference. I could see that this may not be for everyone, but we liked it. He talked about the history of the area/caves, pirates that used to be there, and the wildlife there.

It is very cheap and super cool to travel through. It is very informative as well because the slaves used those caves to escape. If you want great lunch go across the street to the Ultimate Jerk Center which has the best jerk pork....yummmm..I enjoyed the caves esp bc it wasnt a long and excrutiating tour and it was shaded...

The experience was good. The walk in the cave, seeing the different rock formations, stalacltites and stalagmites. At the end of the tour the river with beautiful rock formations. I did not enjoy this visit much because I am afraid of bats and craling creatures - lizards. One should go definitely go, its an experience.

We had a great time! The tour guide was extremely friendly and knowledgeable, as well as making us laugh throughout. If anything we wished there was more to see but the tour guide was very good at informing us that this wasn't possible due to safety reasons as experts continue to explore the caves.

Our family of 5 enjoyed walking through the caves. Our guide was humorous and informative. Our group was large, and at times it was hard to hear our group. Another groups was following closely behind us, and at times his voice was stronger than our guides voice (we were towards the back of our group). There was some steep climbing... More

The pictures on the internet made this place look like a magical multicolored underwater cavern with a huge pool you could swim in.. Let me tell you....that is not the case.. No colored accent lighting Only white lights on the trail I asked the guide about the beautiful lighting that we saw in the pictures on line he said they... More

We visited as part of a ship excursion package with the Dunn River Falls. Our guide was informative and towards the end of the tour joined forces with another guide that injected some humor into the tour. We all enjoyed the experience, even though it was extremely hot and humid in the caves. The tour lasts about an hour. I... More

The young man who took us thru was the BEST guide in all the world of caves I have ever been too. We wore little helmets. (with disposable hair nets) He was SO funny. AND, there was a live snake curled up in the cave. Loved it. Cave is not cold like most caves. It was hot. It was August.... More

We booked this activity because we like to mix in some educational activities for our kids while on vacation. I'll start by saying the guide you get makes or breaks this tour. Our guide Kevin was excellent. He was funny, informative, and engaged the kids in our group with his story telling and whimsical theatrics. He gave each kid a... More
