Special Dominica Favorites
On this sure-to-be memorable excursion, you will enjoy two of Dominica's most popular attractions, Emerald Pool and Trafalgar Falls, and do so in the afternoon, after the cruise line mobs from the morning have gone away.
Your tour begins as you proceed to the Trois Pitons National Park (a UNESCO Certified National Park) to visit the Emerald Pool. To reach the pool, there is a 20-minute walk with your guide over packed dirt with some inclines. Once at the pool you may choose to take pictures of the 40-foot waterfall, take a quick dip, or just enjoy the beauty of this tropical rainforest.
From the Emerald Pool, travel through the lush countryside to the village of Trafalgar. Your first view of Trafalgar Falls will be of the top, cascading side by side out of deep gorges carved out by the falls. Guests will set out on a 20-minute walk over uneven and occasionally steep terrain, past ginger plants and vanilla orchids, to reach the falls' viewpoint where you can enjoy the scenery and take pictures.
Upon departing Trafalgar Falls, you will drive to the Botanical Gardens for fabulous photo opportunities. Perhaps you'll even catch a glimpse of Dominica's national bird, the Sisserou Parrot, found only here in Dominica.
Following your tour, you will be returned to your ship.

Thank you Shore Excursions and Adie for providing this experience. We loved every moment and still can't get over Dominica's unique beauty. It is a must see!
We really enjoyed this tour, of all the tours we booked. The guide was very knowledgeable, friendly and a good driver. We appreciated being in a small group to explore the island. One point that wasn't made clear, and I wish I had known, is that there are change rooms available for the dip in the pool at the Emerald Falls. We passed on wearing bathing suits as we didn't want to sit in wet suits on the way back to the ship. We would have enjoyed going in the water.
we booked 3 tours through Shore Excisions for the 7 night Caribbean departed from San Juan. This one turned out to be the best we had. The tour guide is a young local gentleman who is very knowledgeable for local and very polite. The weather was not perfect, we had shower, thunder, drizzling through out of the day, but all people in the group enjoyed the trip very much. The two water falls are very beautiful.
