I think there is a cave in the canyon about two thirds up in the cliff. You would have to rappel from the top to get into it. At one time I thought about doing it but I don't know how to find it from the top.

The cave you can paddle into is more of an overhang but technically it would qualify as a cave. There no significant cave that I know off that yo can paddle into. Then again there are parts of the river I haven't paddled. I haven't paddled anything south of Yokums.
