At Cave and Mine Adventures we offer unique experiences, both above and below ground, to adventure seekers, families, schools and scouts from near and far. Our guests are often stepping out of their comfort zone and facing fears, enjoying rare time with family, seeking an educational experience that they can see and touch, or crossing something off their “bucket list.” We are always looking for friendly, outgoing, and enthusiastic people to join our team and help us provide these once-in-a-lifetime moments for our guests.
