“something different”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

Lake Shasta Caverns was a very different experience for me. The fun doubles because of the ferry and the bus we took to reach the caverns entrance. The entrance was $24 per person, which was kind of okay. It is a one time visit. I don't think I or my wife would want to go there or any caverns again as it is not a very interesting activity. I would rather rent a boat and do some water activity in that area.

“Awesome Lake Views”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2014

I attended the cavern trip alone while trying to kill time around the Redding area. The short ferry trip across Shasta Lake is gorgeous and I just wanted to jump into the beautiful waters. The staff was very polite. The tour wasn't arduous for an active and fit person but at least one person on my tour struggled with the number of stairs. Neat and interesting and totally worth the money.

“Ferry ride and a cavern tour.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

Another cavern on a long list of cavern tours. We just can't get enough caverns. LOL this one comes with a bonus, a ferry ride across the lake. Once on the other side a bus takes you up to the top where the entrance to the cavern is. This cavern is beautiful, a wide variety of big rooms and long tunnels, lots and lots of stairs. No disappointment here. Great was to get out of the heat.

“Over 600 steps, but beautiful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2014

You get a lot for this tour. A boat ride across the lake, a bus up a very steep slope and mystical caves. I was lucky to be in a small group which made it even more enjoyable. Formations are varied and interesting.
