Despite the website saying they close at the end of the month, they closed last weekend. Would have been nice to know before we drove a few hours to go here. Guess we should have called but never had this issue with anything before. It did look fun from the road.

My wife and I made sure to check this place out as it is one of the top attractions on the island. Not only is there a large cave to check out but it has an 18 hole mini golf course, a butterfly house, car museum, a maze, a giant gift shop, and a few other smaller activities. What a... More

The stalagmites or stalactites (sp?), were super small. Apparently the owner in the 1800s chopped them all off thinking they'd grow back. So, it was missing that wow factor. However, the tour guide was amazing. She was super funny and engaged. She made it fun!

It's a nice little respite from the heat and nice to see for the first few minutes but it gets stretched out and the tour guide could work on the presentation.

If you are looking for a cave experience resembling Mammoth Caves, you will not find it here. A tour is 20 minutes and the cave is not very big at all. There is some interesting history associated with the cave. It is very touristy, but even that has a little charm. Not a bad experience, but once was probably enough.

My husband and I were looking to kill an hour before dinners me night and headed to Perry's Cave to play mini golf. For $8 a person, it was perfect! We had so much fun! The course is well maintained and even has a waterfall!

We were looking for something fun to do on a Monday in put in bay and this delivered. We got the fun pass, $16 for three excursions. We did putt putt (nice, well maintained course), the cave (interesting, lot of history, tour guide did a nice job), and the butterfly conservatory (very pretty, staff was knowledgeable and it was magical...
