Our newest option at Bluespring Caverns is a high adventure guided tour by kayak into downstream Myst’ry River as it flows toward its eventual rise to the surface. Small groups of 4 to 8 are led by two experienced staff interpreters aboard specially-selected kayaks on this unique trip.
As you explore, paddling through high, wide, narrow and lower passages, you will pass by dripstone formations large and small. In the usually clear waters, an occasional blind cavefish or crayfish will appear. Kayak trips of approximately three hours pass quickly as you explore two miles round trip of this pristine waterway.
The park also offers our Overnight Adventures with advance reservations.
Groups must be 4 to 8 participants.
Groups of 4 to 5 are $100.00 per person. Groups of 6 to 8 are $80.00 per person.

Just a Few
All participants must be 14 years old or older and must weigh less than 250 lbs. For safety, we expect that all participants are in reasonably good health with basic swimming ability. Some kayak or canoe experience is required.
Here's a list.
Participants should bring a complete change of clothes and shoes as you will get somewhat wet and could get very wet! You may also bring a small water bottle and a small pocket flashlight. We provide kayak, paddles, life vest, helmet and light. All participants must use our equipment. No substitutions please!
On Rare Occasions
Underground Mys’try River is a natural karst stream draining 15+ square miles and is thus subject to flooding. We will notify groups as soon as possible of a probable tour cancellation. On rare occasions, surprise rain events can force cancellation of tours with little or no notice. Dates that we cancel can be rescheduled or are eligible for refunds. Make sure we can reach you by phone.
Under Certain Conditions
While kayak tours are set to run regardless of snow, ice, etc., we realize that, occasionally travel may be unsafe. In such cases your trip can be rescheduled by contacting us. Cancellations 10 days or more prior to date may reschedule or apply for a refund. Closer cancellations can be rescheduled once but are not eligible for refunds. Please note that the minimum group charge is $400.00 regardless of the number of participants actually on tour.
Please review our calendar to ensure your date is available. Then scroll down and complete our reservation request form.
