I think I would introduce myself politely and then explain your interest in exploring his cave. How it could contribute to the existing body of knowledge of the karst aquifer of which it is a part, etc., etc. Also mention he would be provided a map if the cave 'went' so impress his friends as well as possible photographs. Liability issues I'll leave to you as you should know what they are in your area.

show him a pirate map indicating blackbeard threw his treasure in there and offer him 80% of any treasure you find :)
I'm not scared of the dark, it's the things IN the dark that make me nervous. :)
