Cave at the Wave
The fantastic new Cave at the Wave is the latest thrilling challenge at the Wave Centre Maryport. Our superb indoor caving system features over 75m of exploring, discovering, squeezing, clambering, climbing and crawling. You will discover tight squeezes, ball pools, passages, fossils, stalagmites and stalactites and much more along the way as you explore with the aid of just our instructors and your head torch! Suitable for ages four and upwards and for up to eight cavers at a time the only limit to our caving system is your bravery and physical size - there are some tight squeezes so very tall and large people may want to come along and have a look before booking – we’re happy to let you try before you buy.
In addition to our fantastic caving system users can tackle to brand new challenges. The outer cave wall has four brand new Clip n Climb lateral climbs based on actual clip n climb walls but you have to climb across the wall not up and secondly as part of the overall caving experience we’ve installed a 6 metre high caving ladder for cavers to ascend and descend! Sessions consist of a 15 minute induction followed by 45 mins in the Cave.
