Scuba Diving in Dominica
Within minutes from shore the young volcanic sea walls of Dominica plunge dramatically, half a kilometer deep, creating stunning seascapes and a vibrant marine life habitat. Here you’ll find some of the most colorful and healthiest reef systems in the Caribbean. With hot-water fumaroles and volcanic pinnacles swarming with schools of fish, you’ll know you’ve discovered something unique.
Protected Marine Reserves – Fantastic Diving – Unspoiled Reefs
See rare seahorses and flying Gurnards; drift along with large yellowtail snappers, cero, barracuda and schools of horse eye jacks. Other sea creatures commonly seen in Dominica include Scorpion fish, red banded lobsters, Banded coral shrimps and Sea Turtles.
