UNRIVALLED CARIBBEAN ADVENTURE DESTINATION

Dominica, not to be confused with the Spanish-speaking Dominican Republic, lies between the French islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique. Known as the "Nature Island of the Caribbean", Dominica is the undiscovered, uncrowded, off-the-beaten-path hidden gem with stunningly beautiful and primordial nature that many hope to discover and explore.

Waitukubuli was the name given to the island by the indigenous Amerindians, the Kalinago.  It means "tall is her body," and the moment you land here you will understand why. Dominica is the youngest island in the Caribbean and offers unspoiled, raw nature to visitors. The island, formerly a British territory, became independent in 1978 and remains a member of the British Commonwealth and the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States.  

Dominica has a warm tropical climate. Average daily temperatures fluctuate between 70-80 degrees Fahrenheit. Dominica’s verdant greenery is fed with regular servings of rain. Although the official rainy season is from July-October, expect what is locally known as “liquid sunshine” at any time!

Under the Sea

The underwater terrain of Dominica is as diverse as its terrestrial area, with a wide variety of marine life and dramatic underwater features including sunken volcanoes and deep drop-offs.

More than half a dozen types of whales and a dozen types of dolphins have been identified in Dominican waters. Due to the deep depth of the warm West coast waters, a variety of whales use Dominica to seek food, mate and give birth, making Dominica the whale watching capital of the Caribbean.

Divers from around the world enjoy underwater springs, caves, and volcanoes, while they observe the abundant marine life which includes tropical fish, sponges, sea horses and corals.

Fresh Water Playground

Guests are frequently surprised by the rugged mountains and waterfalls of Dominica.  Clouds make their way across the Atlantic Ocean from Africa, and release their moisture across the first mountain range they pass.  Dominica is blessed with an abundance of clean, fresh water to fuel its rivers.

 

With 365 rivers, many of the jungle hikes lead to refreshing river swims and allow guests to swim at the base of several large waterfalls.

Guests may also hike to alpine lakes in the interior that provides panoramic views of the island and the Atlantic Ocean.
