Otherworldly and my review won't do this dive site justice. Something you have to see for yourself. Spent 3 hours underwater and wish I had more days. Dive trail #4 was the highlight. Staff was also incredible, friendly, knowledgeable and safety is their highest priority. They had a two to one ratio to divers and a follow kayak at the... More

4 cousins from WI visited 11-26-16. Gavon, our tour guide was the best! He's passionate about his job and his guests. Lots of facts. Tour lasted an hour. Light jacket recommended. There are 65 steps down into the mine but all easily navigatable. It's absolutely amazing down below. I highly recommend and would go back. Thanks Gavon!

5 mine dives were enough. The cold water isn't a big deal if you have the proper gear (I was in a 7/8 mil Bare wet/dry & wore sharkskin socks under my boots). The problem was that each dive was very similar to the one before. After 5 very similar dives I'd seen enough. The Caboose was very quaint but... More

I've been wanting to take this tour for a long time. I finally did it! Me and my family were amazed. It's unbelievable that places like this exist. Our guide (Don) was the best! Very knowledgeable and funny to boot!

This was a very interesting tour. Learned a lot about mine and mining. Gavin was a great guide. Even with bad knees we didn't have a difficult time climbing down or up the stairs.

I've seen most reviews are about the diving. My friends and I took the mine tour. Good customer service. Found it confusing because they wouldn't let us pay for our reservations ahead of time. They made me call the afternoon we were coming. Our guide was young and friendly. And knew his stuff. But he didn't hesitate to let us... More

This was a very fun day of diving. We had Brandon and Katie as our guides. We did 3 of the easier trails, but it was lots of fun, and even felt like an intro to cavern diving. Brandon told us of the history of the parts of the mine that we were about to see, and it was like... More

GREAT tour! Make sure you have your walking non-slip shoes on. Gavon our "excellent" guide was very informational. Cool part of Missouri history.

Very interesting tour and history of an old mine now used for scuba diving and tours. Our guide, GAVON with an "O", was very informative and an upbeat young man.

We took the tour this past weekend and it was awesome. My great grandfather worked in the mine for 40 years so it was very neat to see. Olivia was out your guide and she was great and very knowledgeable. Definitely recommend the visit!
