Dominica or Waitukubuli is one of the larger islands in the Caribbeans Lesser Antilles with the main towns of Roseau and Portsmouth. Its underwater world is spectacular with protected areas such as the Cabrits Marine Reserve in the north and the Scotts Head Soufriere Marine Reserve in the south. Hard and soft coral formations are numerous, most situated in black volcanic sand, giving you the impression of scuba diving in very deep waters with not much light. Sheer walls, great caves and a wide diversity of animal life makes this place to such a stunning dive location.
Pygmy Sperm Whales, Pilot Whales and False Killer Whales are some of the whales met on a whale watching tour, popular especially between November and March. There are several types of dolphins encountered on boat trips and Rosalie Beach is between March and August the prime area for Hawksbill Turtles, Loggerhead Turtles, Green Sea Turtles and Leatherbacks to nest and hatch.
Fresh water waterfalls, bubbling sulfur springs, streaming flows, rivers and lakes, lush mountainous rain forests, endemic species and flowering plants below canopies have given this island the name Nature Island. It is home to Boiling Lake, with 200ft wide, the second largest boiling lake in the world, and reason enough to believe Dominique is geologically young and still being formed. Dominica, north of Martinique and south of Guadeloupe, is one of the best dive destinations worldwide; a perfect place for a vacation.
