It's a 250 year old 300 ft tunnel through sandstone. An interesting place to visit from a historical/geographical sense and it's got a sense of adventure about it too. You will have bats flying past your head which is part of the thrill. Easy to...More

Amazing tunnel built by slaves for the import/export of goods. Can't imagine the difficult labor. The entrance is in a beautiful park and the exit offers a spectacular view of the coastline.

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

Kayaked from the resort beach ( Buccament Bay) through the bat cave! Great fun! Its narrow but that just adds to the excitement!

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....More

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...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.
