Diving in Dominica

Dominica is a dive destination too often forgotten when one goes to the Caribbean. Yet, so close to Guadeloupe, it has without a doubt some of the most incredible dive sites in the region ! This island is truly a hymn to Nature, capital N. With its still active volcanic land, Dominica is a paradise on Earth that fiercely defends its environmental policy. Almost all of its land is Natural Reserve...

On land or under water, the show is permanent and breathtaking ! Majestic mountains, countless rivers and waterfalls, natural spas, lush forests, abundant fauna… Ah, Dominica.

Underwater, you will find your heart’s desire. The dive sites are concentrated over 3 areas all located on the west coast of the island : Soufrière and Scott’s Head to the south, St. Joseph/Salisbury/Coulibistrie in the center, and Portsmouth in the north. The dives are varied and exciting : vertiginous drop-offs, walls of volcanic bubbles, steep valleys, shipwrecks, coral gardens, labyrinths, caves, and majestic pinnacles. The surprises don’t stop ! But, the star of the show is undoubtedly the presence of large Cetaceans. Dominica has become one of the best observation spots with sperm whales that take up residence during the year. For an unusual experience, don’t miss the females giving birth from November to March. For the occasion, professionals respectful of animals and safety rules organize different trips.

Finally, you must know that numerous professional dive centers have set up shop over the years and will be happy to show you the region and share their passion. By the end, you will have understood that Dominica is an island that will not leave you indifferent and the time you have spent will always be too short. So much to discover, so little time. Dominica is definitely a must for all divers and their families.
