We had to walk down as the boats were not operating due to rough seas. We had 2 kids (9 and 4) and a 75 yr old...they all did it in 15 min. :) well worth the visit to these 7 million year old caves!! Impressive!!
It's nice walk, but Neptune's Grotto is not that great, if you have seen many caves. Don't agree with "must see" statement. I recommend to start walk from the roundabout about 9:30 to catch tour at 10:00, to avoid sun and rush of tourists. It's also easier to park early. Don't forget to bring cash. The desk is in the entry of cave.
