Soufriere Snorkel & Sulphur Springs

Snorkel in the beautiful waters of Dominica at Champagne Reef in the geothermal bubbles that create an experience unlike any other.

Begin your tour at the cruise ship pier where you will be met by your driver and travel a scenic 15-minutes to the water sports facility passing by the quaint village of Pointe Michel.

Meet your PADI certified Dive Master who will be your snorkel guide for the snorkel portion of this combination excursion. You will be provided with comfortably fitting snorkel gear, a brief safety orientation and tips on how to use the gear and get the most out of your snorkeling in the Dominica. Your snorkeling gear includes mask, snorkel, fins and snorkel vest.

Your snorkeling experience begins directly from the shore, your guide will walk with you down the beach and assist you with your gear and then lead you into the water. The reef starts only 3 yards leading out 100 yards to the main reef, see how the underwater geothermal springs vent gasses in the form of thousands of warm bubbles, creating a feeling of swimming through a giant glass of Caribbean Sea champagne. This phenomenon was created after molten lava solidified on entering the sea and gases where trapped during the volcanic era when this island was formed.

The reef provides vibrantly colored corals and sponges as well as tropical fish, lobster and is a permanent habitat for Hawksbill turtles, you may even spot seahorses.

After snorkeling, travel a short 15-minutes to discover another example of Dominica's rich volcanic history at the Soufriere Sulphur Springs. Hidden in this rich volcanic region you will find the area is devoid of vegetation due to the fumes and hot water. There is a network of trails you can explore or simply soak in the relaxing, warm and rejuvenating Sulphur water in one of the pools fed from the volcanic activity in the Soufriere hills. The springs are renowned for their reported ability to reduce stress, cure rheumatism, and other ailments. More importantly, they just feel good! You will have approximately one hour to relax and enjoy the beautiful surrounding in nature's hot tub.

For your comfort and convenience, the dive and snorkel center at Champagne Reef provides showers, changing rooms, refreshments, and a sundeck overlooking the beautiful Caribbean Sea.

You will be driven back to the cruise ship pier after your day of exploration and relaxation has ended.
