After a short rest, you will enter the cave from the top, and descend a well-lit metal staircase which leads to the extraordinary cave system 100 feet below that is filled with stalactites and stalagmites, sinkholes and a crystal pool that shimmers like glass, reflecting the colours of the light that filters through the cave.Here the cave formations are the best in Trinidad and Tobago with some shaped like dinosaurs and others like angels. You will spend up to one hour in the cave.

Thereafter, you will exit and return to the boat along the same path.  The boat returns to Island Home Owners Boatyard. End of Tour
