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.

Very enjoyable and informative tour. Bring a walking stick if you don’t like walking on steps and uneven ground, but certainly NOT a must. Tour guide was extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommend this tour.

Great Excursion
January 11, 2020
Our tour guide was great. She spoke well, provided lots of information, and was very friendly. I thoroughly enjoyed this excursion. For those of you who have motion sickness, the car ride is a never ending roller coaster. However, the guide was knowledgeable enough to provide a natural remedy for the motion sickness on the spot.

Beautiful tropical walk

The tour to Emerald pool was beautiful and the guide was quite informative along the way. It is quite a long walk down hill all the way and the trip back up many uneven stairs could be difficult for some.

A Friendly Tour With Friendly Local Guides
April 08, 2019
Our tour of Dominica was very well done. We were a group of seven passengers from our ship, with two very pleasant local guides who were knowledgeable about the island. We were all asking them a lot of questions on a wide range of topics, from types of trees to local politics. The tour took a little longer than scheduled, but we saw a lot and learned a lot. Recommended.

Enjoyable tour!
March 16, 2019
Our group of six enjoyed our tour! The winding roads were something, and we enjoyed Trafalgar Falls and the Emerald Pool area. Very knowledgeable guide, and we learned a lot of information. Although still recovering from the hurricane damage, the people were welcoming and happy to have us on their beautiful island!

One of our favorite excursions
March 15, 2019
This was better than we expected, since this island is one on our itinerary that is still reeling from the effects of Hurricane Maria. Half of the resorts and hotels on the island are still not operational. We were driven through beautiful scenery and stopped at Emerald Pool (which also had a waterfall) and at the astoundingly beautiful Trafalgar Falls. Both guides (one was the driver) were very helpful, guiding one person with mobility issues up some challenging steps to see the falls. They also knew a lot about plants, animals, and history of the island.
