This was Ocean First Divers' first trip to Dominica and if our experience is any indication of future travel to this majestic paradise, then we'll be returning many times in the coming years. The island is an absolute paradise. Amazingly, the diving rivaled the topside beauty. We saw tons of juvenile spotted drums, snake eels, smooth trunkfish, red banded lobsters, cleaning shrimp, longlure frogfish, jawfish and longsnout seahorses! The group also witnessed quite possibly the largest hawksbill sea turtle any of us had ever seen ;) One of the coolest experiences was diving both the Caribbean and Atlantic in one dive trip!
Most days after lunch, the group would head out to the rainforest and hike to one amazing waterfall after another. We tackled Titou Gorge and Trafalgar Falls, along with Emerald Pool, where the more adventurous minded souls swam in the refreshing pools. We also spent one afternoon whale watching and had the privilege of following two young, jovial sperm whales for almost an hour. Dominica is an incredible place. We can't wait to go back!
