Cole’s Cave is an underground Cave located in Jack-in-the-Box Gully in St. Thomas. Possessing an underground river, it has many beautiful caverns adorned with stalactites and stalagmites. Not having had much human modification, it allows for an authentic impression of how many underground caves and rivers are formed in the limestone island of Barbados.

Simply awesome - a scramble through the deepest wonders of Barbados

Went on this solo and was everything I’d hoped for. We descended through the trees to the cave entrance and spent a couple of hours walking through caves by torch light, scrambling up and down the rocks, ducking under stalactites and wading through pools of natural water. Even got to jump in to the deep one. Justin was awesome and can’t recommend enough. It’s not a leisurely tram, this is a local guided adventure.
An absolutely amazing experience

Visiting Cole’s Cave was a very different, but most enjoyable experience, and really quite an exciting adventure. Having booked the tickets via TripAdvisor and got immediate confirmation, Grantley then contacted us the day before to confirm arrangements and meeting point. Our guides for the hike were Christian & Stephen, who were waiting for us when we arrived. They were both very friendly guys, excellent guides and had so much to tell us about the caves, and the surrounding area. They were very good at managing our group of 6 down into the gully, into the cave, and throughout the hike/clambers/climbs within and descents on the way back out. Our teenage boys were like a pair of goats, my husband and I a little slower, but we all managed the climb in, through, back and out and seeing the caves in their natural glory was a wonderful experience, and the highlight of our holiday here in Barbados.
For those considering this experience - it’s likely to be one of the best ever, albeit possibly a little challenging. You will get wet, and a little muddy (so be prepared). You will have to navigate your way in torchlight across rocky pathways and clamber up (or scurry if like my boys) and through various rock pool systems ( we wore beach water shoes which did a good job of protecting our feet while being flexible and giving good grip on the rocks). It’s definitely worth the effort, but most certainly not to be attempted without an experienced guide.
The sight of natural cave formations with their inhabitants left to their own devices is absolutely wonderful to see. A true privilege to witness.
Many thanks to Grantley and his team for making this possible and our very best wishes for Cole’s Cave to remain the natural wonder it is now for many people to experience in the future.
Coles Cave an awesome experience

Hike up, down Coles Cave. What an experience. Justin was amazing. My partner and I loves every minute. Oh yeah there is no more ducking! Don't believe them. It was a joke with Justin. We looked at Harrison and the Flowre Pot. So happy we went with Good Times and Coles Cave. There is not alot of people, off the beaten pass it is eerie and beautiful at the same. It is dark and light. There Re huge centipedes, crickets and cockroaches. There are bats and bat dung.

Most importantly you will be amazed. Thank you very much Justin for helping us stagnate some of our fears and challenging us. Thank you for giving me a whole new experience below ground.

5 star experience all the way

What an amazing experience! Hands down the best thing I did in Barbados ☺️. Justin was a great tour guide, brilliant with the kids too. This is truly an interactive experience. Be prepared to get wet and follow the underground tunnels to reveal beautiful caves, cool crystal clear water and make your own mud plate memorabilia. I wore crocs and they worked just fine for me, kids had on their trainers which were good too. Brilliant experience which I would totally do again. Just be aware that taxi drivers have no clue about this place and didn’t take my guidance when I told them where to go. Justin was brilliant at getting the taxi back on track and to the drop off zone.
