the more adventurous diver -- These sites are located
around the Scottshead Peninsular on the "rougher" south
side of our island, between Dominica and Martinique.
Expect more of everything in the Atlantic, including
more challenging conditions.
Scottshead Soufriere Marine Reserve
The majority of our dives take place in this area,
located just a few minutes boat ride from our base
location. The Scottshead Soufriere Marine Reserve
includes the deep sheltered waters of the bay.
Sites range from drop-offs and walls to pinnacles
as well as shore dives.
For those real dive addicts and rare
critter hunting photohogs who love a good night dive.
Night dive sites include
the Newtown Dropoff, Seaworld pinnacle and the Fort
Young flats. These sights are not dived regularly
so look for Batfish, upside down jellyfish, octopus and
most affordable dive option! Our supervised dives
include a "lifeguard" on duty and directions to our
easily navigated reef providing a multitude of corals,
fish and other sea life. Our shore dive area is highly
rated for micro-creatures by marine biologists
Although Dominica is not known for wrecks, we know of a
few that will satisfy the curiosity and adventurous
needs of the avid wreck diver.
Central Island location Dives
Central island sites, near the mouth of the Canefield
River, is the Canefield Tug Wreck. The 55-foot,
well-preserved tug sits almost upright in 80 to 90 feet
of water. It hosts sponges, gorgonians, tropical fish
and, occasionally, seahorses. Farther up the coast is
historic Rodney's Rock. This area brightens up the eyes
of divers with its canyon-like features and a variety of
marine life. Other west central sites include locations
off Salisbury and Batalie Beach.
Northern Island location Dives
More good dive sites exist on the northern half of the
island's west coast. At Coral Gardens North divers will
find sponges and corals, including growths of black
coral. Rina's Hole is one of the nicest shallow dives
Dominica has to offer. Azure vase sponges supporting
golden crinolds and rich finger corals are found at
Maggie's Point on the central west coast.
