Horne Lake Caverns' three-hour Wet and Wild Cave Adventure tour embraces the rainy season’s pluvial bounty and allows spelunkers of all ages and abilities to embark upon educational and exhilarating sojourns. Helmed by a savvy guide, subterranean explorers wend through vast marble passages while gawking at crystal caverns and making small talk with the goblins that call them home. Ascend a waterfall, take photos of an underground river, and treat eyes to unearthly vistas. Grotto-travellers keep arms and ears folded close to their bodies while squeezing through narrow ceiling galleries festooned with a century's worth of bat-painted frescoes. Underground ushers advise participants to bring along a full change of clothes to don post-tour, and explorers should be prepared to wiggle through tight spaces, partake in short climbs, and engage in cave scrambling. As Horne Lake Caverns supplies tour takers with all the necessary equipment, adventurers can leave their miner’s lamps and inflatable stalactites at home.

Horne Lake

A waterfall surges into a subterranean river. Towering peaks dotted with evergreen trees loom on a distant shore. A fire pit billows wood smoke into the sky. At Horne Lake, guides spend each day connecting visitors with Qualicum Beach's natural splendour. Certified cave guides also lead a series of excursions through the natural majesty of Horne Lake Caverns, where a network of rocky passageways wind around a subterranean river and gleaming crystal compositions reach up to four stories tall under soaring gallery ceilings. They also conduct nature-based leadership programs such as team building and ropes courses.

It is magnificent!!!

An unreal experience! Our guide Kyle was knowledgeable, fun and super patient, one of the best guides I've had anywhere. Our favourite part was the option to crawl through the passages in pitch blackness on our way back. The knee pads and glove upgrades will help a LOT!
