Barbados Harrison's Cave Excursion Reviews

Home > Member Reviews > Barbados Shore Excursions > Harrison's Cave

Located in the central uplands of the island, this crystallized limestone cavern is a testament to nature's mastery. Flowing streams, deep pools of crystal clear water and towering columns characterize this living cave.

In Barbados we opted for the only ship-sponsored excursion on our cruise, Harrison Caves. I’d visited Hato Caves in Curacao on a previous cruise and thoroughly enjoyed it. Underground caverns are such a departure from other cruise-ship excursions. I researched doing the caves on our own, but the cost of the taxi was high and I read that the caves give preference to tour groups. If you arrive individually, you’ll likely have to wait. So we booked through the ship. The caves are interesting and beautiful and a fun change of pace for a Caribbean vacation.

Harrison cave has an amazing amount of 'younger' stalactites and stalagmites. You will not experience any claustrophobia on this tour, it's quite large and you travel through it by electric tram. It is very well lit. I took some excellent photo's. For some reason the excursion listed it as 'moderate' exertion and must be able to walk well, or something. Actually there is no exertion and you only walk a very short ways to the cave entrance, which is in a modern building that is has many interactive and informative displays.

please ride to the caves. Ecologically I think they did a lot of damage to the caves. Dynamited giant tunnels so they could drive a tour vehicle similar to Epoc center through about a miles worth of caves. Interesting.

Harrison's cave was a disappointment. It was large but your not really seeing much except big tunnels.

The Harrison's Cave tour was really great. Took a long time to get there and back, but the caves were very interesting and an amazing feat of Mother Nature. The roads seemed very poor, but the vistas were lovely. People friendly.
