We begin the day with snorkeling at Champagne
Dominica’s premier snorkeling site.

Champagne was so named because of the bubbles which rise from below
The area is part of a submerged volcano
There are places where you can actually feel the warm water emerging from below.
You’ll encounter a variety of colourful tropical fish and corals.

After Champagne we proceed to Ti Tou Gorge

Drive through the capital city Roseau
Continue up the lush and verdant Roseau Valley.
There will be photo stops at scenic locations until we reach the village of Laudat
From Laudat we take a 15 minute walk to the Ti Tou Gorge
Which is one of the most unique and “must see” marvels of the island.

The name Ti Tou Gorge is Creole and means ‘Little Throat Hole’,
literally we will swim up the ‘throat’ of a mountain to a waterfall
located inside the gorge.
This gorge was formed many thousands of years ago and is
fed by water from the Freshwater Lake.
The formation of the rock walls on either side
through which we swim are intricate and breathtaking
This place is truly one of the wonders of Dominica.

After the gorge we walk back to the vehicle and proceed
to the spectacular twin Trafalgar Falls.

Drive through the friendly and picturesque village of Trafalgar
To the trail leading to two of the island’s most beautiful waterfalls
Cradled under the shadows of the ubiquitous and awesome mountainous landscape.
It is a 15 minute walk from where the vehicle stops, to
the viewing area of the falls,

Those who are able to, under the supervision of the guide
can scramble over the boulders to the base of one of the falls
Where there is a great pool for another rejuvenating swim.

Be sure that your camera has film or your memory card has
enough space.
