As much as the eerie glow from the roof of the water-filled cavern, we enjoyed the evening shuttle-boat ride, the hike into the cave and on to the skiff. The guides were pleasant and informative. Well worth the time.

Very nice tour with knowledgeable tour guide. We went on the late afternoon run and wore our rain pants and coats. However, the tour wasn't that wet, but I was happy for the warmth.
