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.
