One of the most beautiful and majestic of Cockpit Country’s nearly 300 caves, where Cockpit Country’s waters have over eons carved out massive glistening walls, is Quashie River Sink Cave. The excitement of this exploration begins immediately with an exhilarating 150 foot climb where ropes and small hand-rails are required just to reach the cave entrance. The entrance of the cave is guarded by 20 foot waterfalls and crystal-clear swimming pools as the ominous black mouth of Quashie Cave beckons only the bravest to enter its depths. Once inside visitors are treated to walls and ceilings glistening with minerals, spectacular stalactites and stalagmites, boulders as big as cars and roaring waterfalls. Deeper into the cave crabs and other small creatures that live in complete darkness scurry through the waters and past visitor’s feet. At the farthest point of the tour guides turn off all lights and allow those that have entered Quashie Cave to experience a darkness so deep and unfathomable it has guests begging to turn the lights back on. This tour is physically challenging and recommended for experienced outdoor adventurers. Professionally trained tour guides ensure the safety of visitors to this highly challenging tour. After the tour visitors will experience local Jamaican cuisine at Virgo’s Restaurant in Albert Town then wrap up the tour over a cold Red Stripe at Atarus Pub.
