Important Information

  • This tour will take place rain or shine. This activity involves 4 miles of kayaking. Uber/Lyft do not service this area. Emerald Cave is a very beautiful part of our half-day tour, and we spend the same amount of time in the cave as all the other outfitters. The cave itself if relatively small, and the main draw of the cave is the water lighting up the beautiful emerald green colors that you can see in pictures. However that lighting can change depending on a couple different factors; time of day, time of year, and weather (sunlight). It can be a great picture opportunity, but it is a small part of our tour, and shouldn’t be seen as the main attraction!
