Mystery Cave: Wild Caving Tour

Cavers crawling through a tight passage.This is the real thing - caving!

You will be issued protective and support gear, and you'll be crawling on hands and knees and squeezing through undeveloped portions of Mystery Cave.

This tour takes about four hours. We'll spend an hour to an hour and a half on instructions and gearing up, and the rest of the time you'll be underground. (2.5-3 hours underground, generally.)

This tour is not available to anyone under the age of 13. You will need to be in good physical condition.

Participants must arrive with the proper boots and gloves, and a willingness to get muddy.
