You’ll get a headlamp so you’ll be able to illuminate the incredible interior of this beautiful cave as you float. The caves are totally dark, but your headlamp will help you illuminate the nooks and crannies where bats and spiders live. Visitors also get to see plenty of interesting natural formations, including stalactites and stalagmites.
