Craters, chasms, plunging walls and soaring pinnacles are all amazing structures you’ll encounter when diving in Dominica but the gases seeping through the ocean floor at Champagne Reef produce amazing warm bubbles that add an extra special element to this particular dive site. Named for the champagne-like effect of the never-ending stream of bubbles, the reef is home to intriguing sea creatures like seahorses, reef squid, batfish and the green and hawksbill turtles.

Let’s face it, caves are cool and cave diving is even cooler! So why not transform a regular dive into an underwater adventure by descending 40 ft to a crack in the sea floor that’s a comfortable 8 ft wide and 25 ft long, granting you access to…The Throne Room.

Diver’s Thirst is a drift divers paradise and a favorite for dive masters. Located on the Atlantic side of the island, the currents here are strong enough to drift but not so overpowering that you feel rushed through the sites. Drift lazily along the seafloor at depths ranging from 50 to 80 ft and take in the diverse marine habitat.

Stuart Cove’s is the island’s premier dive shop for daring divers who want to experience the thrill of a shark encounter. Definitely not for the faint of heart, these dives take place at four sites: Shark Wall, Runway Wall, The Runway and The Arena. Sharks passively follow you along a set path on the first dive, but things get interesting during dive number two when they get up close and personal at supper time as they’re fed by a professional shark feeder in your presence!

A Greek freighter sitting in water as deep as 127 ft and as shallow as 18 ft, the SS Stavronikita (call it ‘The Stavro’ if you want to sound like you’re in-the-know) is the ideal wreck dive for veterans and novices alike. The purpose-sunk wreck has accumulated a vibrant marine habitat in the three decades since it made its descent to the ocean floor

Starting just 10 yards off the water’s edge and ranging in depths from 20 to 140 ft, the Anse Chastanet Reef has been declared one of the best shore dives in the Caribbean.

Sculpture gardens are a dime a dozen on land but there are only two underwater installations in the Americas and one is in Grenada! A definite must-see on any diver’s bucket list, the Underwater Sculpture Park is a masterpiece created by British sculptor, Jason de Caires Taylor, to reflect the island’s rich culture and folklore.
