The north of Dominica is known to divers because of Cabrits National Park, as well its green lush rain forest and history as its crystal blue coastal waters. It is one of the few places worldwide where you can dive on large fields of volcanic boulders situated next to each-other with black sand in between. An unexplored region, slightly harder to find divetours and for advanced divers only, is the strong flowing Guadeloupe Channel between Guadeloupe and Dominica. The dive Point Break at Cape Capucin is a great example of exhilarating diving with pelagic and plenty of fish.
One of the most northern points of Dominica is the top of Morne Aux Diables and its many sulpher springs. Toucari Bay, Douglas Bay and Prince Rupert Bay are some of the better known bays in the north of Dominica. Cabrits National Park is known because of the 18th century British Fort Shirley that once housed a British garrison of more than 600 soldiers. Portsmouth, at the center of Prince Rupert Bay and split in two by Indiana River, is the second largest city and a great base to explore this part of the island. Mount Diablotin National Park, slightly more inland with the countries highest point Morne Diablotins (Morne Diablantins) at 1.447 meters, is a great place to hike and understand why Dominica is nicknamed the Nature Island. Its scenery is spectacular.
