Our guide had a microphone so we could all hear. Great tour (and there are lots of geocaches on site). Watch your head!

Try to be one of the first people on the boat. The further back you are, the harder the acoustics make it to understand the guide -- who is at the very front.

The Cave entrance boasts a ballroom, complete with an art deco chandelier. It looks a nice place for a spooky Halloween-style midnight ball or wedding. They do quite a few private events.

Super cool boat tour! Guide was full of interesting information about the geology of the area and the history of the cave. Cute gift shop! Beautiful hiking trails. Great stop. Definitely not ideal for anyone with mobility issues.
