Worley’s Cave

Caving Tours & Overnight Adventures

USA Raft is the leading caving and spelunking adventure company for Worley’s Cave. Most of our guides are geology students or graduates with a true passion for caving. USA Raft will provide you with all the necessary gear for your caving experience: helmet, headlamp and gloves.

A unique “inside” outdoor activity, caving can be the perfect adventure for anytime! Temperatures within Worley’s Cave remain constant at about 55 degrees. Explore the beauty of natural cave features and formations and learn a bit about the life and geology of an undeveloped limestone cave. Worley’s Cave requires no prior caving experience. The trip is not completely technical, but we will wear helmets and use head-lamps (provided). There are no mandatory tight passages with prolonged crawling. We provide all of the gear and an experienced guide. Worley’s Cave is suitable for active, healthy people. There is climbing up and down. The cave is active, which means it is naturally wet inside the cave, so it can be very slick. Expect to get muddy and walk through an underground stream!
