Our unique Caribbean Summer Adventures venture further afield and explore some of our lesser known Caribbean cruising grounds including an Island called Dominica.
Known as “the Nature Isle” of the Caribbean, Dominica remains one of the least developed nations, wedged between the two French islands of Martinique and Guadeloupe. Jungle exploration, river tubing, and hiking up the trails to the active hot-springs of the volcanoes are only a few of the options available to you. Come and be amazed at the beauty of nature on this emerald isle! Be prepared to be dazzled by hundreds of shades of green!
Dominica has many easy rated trails that allow the casual hiker to get out and enjoy the Nature Island and her many outdoor wonders. For the most part, these trails are relatively wide and smooth, with easy grades. Bridges are typically available when crossing water, streams or gullies.
If you want more of a challenge, however, Dominica will oblige. The 6 hour, 8 mile hike to the Boiling Lake is probably the most demanding hike on the island, but possibly the most rewarding. The world’s largest boiling lake, it appears like a cauldron of bubbling greyish-blue water, which is usually enveloped in a cloud of vapour. The Boiling Lake is actually a flooded fumarole, a crack through which gases escape from the molten lava below - rather than a volcanic crater.
One of the top ten dive destinations in the world, Dominica’s diverse dive sites await you. From the calmer tropical-fish-filled waters, to spectacular drops, and a submerged volcanic crater - the opportunities for underwater discovery and photography are unparalleled.
This incredible trip to the “secret” island of Dominica begins, and ends, at our Guadeloupe base at Marina Bas du Fort in Pointe-à-Pitre.
