Well worth a stop and a few hours to see this unique cave. The staff is friendly, informative, and who ever heard of an underground river featuring blind fish and crayfish?

Well enjoyed the caverns. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Only downside was the terrified screaming child, which made it impossible to hear what the guide said for a good part of the tour. Wish parents would read the brochure about not bringing small children. Poor child, we felt terrible for her.

Absolutely a must-see for visitors of any age! Enjoyed the one-hour trip down the nation's longest navigable underground waterway. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, funny, and very helpful. Really surprised this isn't more well-known!

We visited this cavern two times before and both times it was closed because of flooding. Apparently after heavy rains it can flood so bad that the boats rise to the ceiling. This time, on September 16th we were finally able to take the tour. Before the actual tour which runs once an hour, at least when we went, we... More

Our family (2 adults/2 kids) visited Bluespring Caverns. We had a nice time on this informative boat tour. It was a nice break along our cave tours weekend (nice to sit for a while and get off our feet). Our tour guide, Dylan?, was great. We could tell he was sick with a cold (and wasn't feeling well) but he... More

We loved that these caves were different than most we have been in since you can see them only by boat. Even my teenagers enjoyed it.

The tour was kind of interesting. Neat to see a cave while riding in a boat. Not very many formations but worth a visit if you are in the area.

This was great. We rode in a boat and as we went through the cavern, the guide pointed out highlights along the way, such as fish, formations, and would provide interesting facts about the caverns. I would highly recommend the boat ride.

The cavern was interesting, but it did not have very many stalagmites or stalagtites. Our guide was not very entertaining but he was probably frustrated since our trolling motor died part way through the tour! Would have been interested in hearing more history of the cavern.

We recently visited this attraction one very hot and sticky day and was pleasantly surprised how beautiful this place is. Off the beaten path and far back off the road, with plenty of parking. $16 per adult for a one hour boat ride through the cave, but we were very happy to find out they give a veteran discount with...
