What you will see
The Hull Mine Tour is a top rated tour that takes you into the world class underground natural fluorescent and phosphorescent mineral walls. This is such a unique concentration of minerals which overwhelms the senses with bright fluorescent colors of unending variety and patterns making this viewing an unforgettable experience.
The small group (12 max) tour begins as you are transported 2 miles to the site in a 5 passenger quad/ATV. Next you see the amazing desert's natural beauty as you discover the mining history of the Castle Dome Mining District. The setting is a wilderness within the Sonoran Desert with one of the most beautiful volcanic cores, Castle Dome, before your eyes.
We visit the saguaro growing in the iron wood tree and stop off to see the crystal wash, and broken blade grave as you begin to understand some of the hidden mysteries that have drawn people here for over 300 years.
