Light at the end if the tunnek

It's amazing what slaves did back in the day, true engineering. This place is very romantic at the end if the tunnel.

This is a testament to the slaves who spent countless time to complete such a difficult undertaking...digging through massive rock in order to create a shorter route for sugar delivery to the awaiting ships is worth making the trip. Bats are all around, and are not something I would normally even think about dealing with, but this was worth just... More

The bat cave is a breeding ground for bats...you kayak through a very narrow space...upsetting the bats and thereby ensuring you get a bit of bat droppings on you. It seemed a shame to intrude on the bats...I felt guilty at disturbing and frightening them

This is an awesome site which we saw during our Fantasea Tours trip up the Leeward coast. The boat got us right to the mouth of the cave and we could see the bats. Awesome!

Forget Horror Nights. The bat cave was freaky! The guide told us we were visiting the caves featured in Disney's Pirates of the Caribbean. What he failed to tell us [or maybe just me] is there were live bats, possibly rabid, were in the cave. Instead I was told they were "Night Birds" lol All in all a good time.

It was actually a dive with Indigo dive (fantastic team). Need to be a little cautious of the swells and rocks but the bats fly just over your head as you swim through. Keep reg in as surface water may be a little 'mucky'. Come through gap then break surface and head down to lovely opening of small corals, colourful... More

Fun distraction from the typical snorkel menu. You will see lots of bars up close. At one point the bars are about 18" from the water line at high tide.

My Norweigan neighbor took me to a cove, that I had to cut us into with my cutlass. It used to be an eco-resort. The snorkelling was really good because the water was crystal clear. Then we moved to the next cove, and swam from there to the Bat Cave. I was a little anxious the first time through, but... More

We stayed at Buccament Bay, very close to the cave. The local company, Indigo Dive, took us out in kayaks to the entrance, and then took us through. It was an amazing experience - two species inhabit the cave: the Fisherman bat and the Fruit bat. The Fisherman bat is quite large and you could seem them flying through the... More
