Diving Dominica

Dominica is one of the best places to dive in the Caribbean.  Known as the nature island of the Caribbean, Dominica features a variety of dive sites.  Its underwater topography mirrors the dramatic landscape above. Canyons, pinnacles, and steep walls of pristine corals and sponges provide homes to magnificent marine life.  Seahorses, frogfish, electric rays, eels, and turtles are just a few of the special underwater creatures found at the dive sites in Dominica.  There are even underwater hot springs!

The SCUBA diving in Dominica takes place in three marine reserves.  The marine section of Cabrits National Park is located in the north, the Salisbury Marine Reserve is on the west coast, and the Soufriere Scotts Head Marine Reserve is in the south.
