DOSSIER: THE ‘NATURE ISLAND’ IS THE CARIBBEAN’S CRITTER & CETACEAN HAVEN…

As one of the top diving destinations in the world, Dominica has so much to offer divers of any experience level. There are calm shallows to explore, where curious seahorses cling to coral branches.

Deeper waters make home for over 20 species of whales that frequent these seas. Fantastic wall dives and unique crevices are waiting to be explore. La Sorciere, also known as L’Abym, is one of the most popular wall dives, where divers can peruse easily, as there is little to no current. Make your way along the volcanic ridge of Crater’s Edge, where barracuda stalk their prey and large schools of tuna and snapper make appearances.

Thermal springs erupt around the island, including underwater where volcanic bubbles and warm water emanate from certain sites.

Mission Statement

Dominica, part of the Lesser Antilles, creates the eastern boundary near the southern end of the Caribbean. It is, in fact, the youngest of this chain of islands, so it’s still volcanically active and still forming. Due to this unique characteristic, Dominica is dubbed “the nature island of the Caribbean”. Topside, there are bubbling hot springs, magical waterfalls and rich rainforests full of amazing animals, endemic to the island.

Beneath the blue, Dominica has some of the best diving in the Caribbean! Home to lobsters, jacks, tunas, turtles, octopi and critters such as frogfish, cleaner shrimp and seahorses, just to get started. The marine topography mirrors the island, with large sea mounds, steep walls and even hydrothermal vents! This allows for huge gorgorian fans, barrels and other soft sponges!

Barbados’ portfolio of about 200 wrecks, cements itself as a dive destination that captures the interest of divers looking for something different. The Pamir, Friars Crag and the Stavronikita are the wrecks that should be at the top of your priority list, and some like the Pamir are at depths perfect for the newbie diver. The well-preserved coral environments attract sea turtles, parrotfish, rays and eels of many varieties, and time under the water is only depth dependent as the tepid sea rarely requires divers to wear wetsuits.

Dominica, known as “The Nature Island of the Caribbean” due to its spectacular, lush, and varied flora and fauna, which are protected by an extensive natural park system; the most mountainous of the Lesser Antilles, its volcanic peaks are cones of lava craters and include Boiling Lake, the second-largest, thermally active lake in the world possesses the most pristine wilderness in the Caribbean.
