Jewels of Dominica
Ever wondered what it would be like to swim in an aquarium? You'll have a good idea once snorkeling the Champagne Reef. Refreshed, you'll then visit the lush Botanical Gardens before reaching the stunning Morne Bruce summit. This Roseau tour is ideal for travelers wanting relaxation and beauty.
Once your friendly guide collects you, they will escort you to the lovely Champagne Reef. After putting on your equipment and receiving safety instructions, you'll snorkel the hot springs at the reef, which create bubbles in the water while a dazzling variety of colorful fishes swim around you. Snorkeling this Dominica site is simply extraordinary.
Next, you're off to the beautiful Botanical Gardens. Started in 1889 to help farmers propagate seedlings, the Botanical Gardens features a wide array of flowers, plants, and trees native to the region. If you're lucky, you'll see a cricket match or another cultural event in progress. Take a short walk up the Morne Bruce summit and be rewarded with stunning views of the city and coastline below.
Then, treat yourself with a swim over at Ti Tou Gorge, a spectacular cave-like gorge that was one of the sets for the film "Pirates of the Caribbean 2." The famous Trafalgar Falls are also on your tour. Journey through its lush rainforest to see the Father falls (125 feet) and the Mother Falls (75 feet). Be sure to head to the base of the falls for a swim and soak your muscles in the warmth of the nearby mineral waters.
This sun-soaked Roseau tour includes transportation, as well as beer and water. These sites are a must-see while in Dominica. Reserve your spot today for an incredible experience.
Please Note: Snorkeling equipment is not included in the price of this tour. It is available for rent at Champagne Bay for $6 US for a mask or fins, and $12 for both together.
Jewels of Dominica, was our favorite shore excursion of our Southern Caribbean cruise. The falls, the gorge, the reef, are all must see items. They were made even better by our tour guide Alaine. He was knowledgeable, positive, kind, grateful, and proud of his island and people. He did everything with us. Snorkeling, jumping in the gorge, etc. It was a day we'll spent, and worth every penny, a great value.
This was a fantastic tour. Alain, our guide, was both a a fantastic source of knowledge on the island, and passionate about his home. His pride for Domenica made us feel right at home. Touring with Alain was both fun and a learning experience for all, and the genuine hospitality was a true bonus. The stops on the tour were fantastic. Ti Tou Gorge was spectacular, and not to be missed. We enjoyed the other stops as well, including the snorkeling on the reef. Loads of fish and things to see.

Our tour guide went over and above to make this a wonderful excursion. The waterfalls were beautiful, the gardens were lovely as well as the overlooks. We even got to take an extra side trip that was not on our itinerary. The snorkeling at champagne beach was well worth the trip to. So much was packed into this excursion. We definitely got our money's worth! We learned a lot about the culture as well from Alyn our tour guide.
