Penns Cave & boat

Discover a unique, historic thrilling experience!

Located in Pennsylvania, Penn's Cave is America's only all-water cavern & farm-nature-wildlife park. We offer the most unique experiences the whole family will love, including a fully-guided cavern tour by boat, a beautiful farm to enjoy nature & wildlife, an off-road mountain tour, gemstone panning, & more.

Tickets are purchased inside the Visitors Center on the day of arrival. We do not sell advance or online tickets.


Cave Tour
A 45-50 minute fully-guided tour of the all-water cavern, given entirely by boat!
The cave tour is not handicapped accessible – there are 48 steep concrete steps that lead to the dock entrance where the tour boats are boarded. There are handrails on either side of the stairs. There is also a 300 foot paved inclined path that leads to the staircase. The same stairs and path are used to return to the Visitors Center following the tour.

Farm-Nature-Wildlife Tour
Enjoy our 90-minute, guided Farm-Nature-Wildlife Tour given by bus through the Penn’s Cave grazing pastures, mountain trails and forests.

Prospector Pete's Miner's Maze
A fun activity for young and old alike, Prospector Pete’s Miners Maze features a 4800 square foot labyrinth, with plenty of twists and turns, an observation tower and four checkpoint stations, where you’ll compete to complete the exploration in the best time of the day. “Getting lost” has never been such fun!

Cave Rock Mountain Tour
Fully guided, 2 hour, off-road adventure
Tour given in Penn’s Cave Jeeps (driven by Penn’s Cave Off-Road Trail Guides).
