Exposure to COVID-19 is an inherent risk in any public location where people are present; we cannot guarantee you will not be exposed during your visit. By visiting Howe Caverns, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.
Tours will be by prepaid, non-refundable reservation ONLY. We do NOT anticipate being able to accommodate walk-ins on most days due to only allowing a limited number of ticket sales per tour, per hour and per day. The ticket you purchase is for an exact date and an exact time.
If you are late for your tour, we most likely will NOT be able to accommodate you on another tour as they tend to sell out daily and only a limited number are available.
NO REFUNDS will be given if you are late for your pre-reserved tour. Please plan to arrive at least 15-30 minutes prior to your reserved time so you are not late and can use the restrooms if needed. There are no restrooms in the cave and you will be down there about 1.5 hours.
NO food, beverages, strollers, backpacks, or bags of any kind are permitted in the cave.
It is not possible to “social distance” while enjoying our boat ride. If you are not comfortable sitting directly behind or next to other people for 10-15 minutes, you may choose to skip the boat ride, but no discount or refund will be given. Again, at this time, mask wearing is mandatory and will be strictly enforced.
You will experience damp or wet environmental conditions, including on brick walkways where it could be wet and slippery in certain areas. You should NOT ENTER this if you are not able to walk approximately 1 mile and go up and down about 139 steps. The temperature in the cave is 52 degrees Fahrenheit (13 degrees Celsius) so a light jacket or sweatshirt and comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
YOU MAY NOT ENTER the attraction if you are intoxicated, under the influence of drugs, or have any type of physical limitations that will keep you from completing the tour. The cave is NOT accessible by wheelchair or any wheeled device. This attraction reserves the right to refuse admission to anyone.
THERE ARE NO REFUNDS!
