Dive

DIVE 800x500-2Diving in Dominica is some of the best in the Caribbean, if not the world, with a range of dive sites to suit everyone from the total beginner to the deep sea thrill seeker.

Buddy Dive at Fort Young is perfectly located for anyone looking for the best in diving vacations. The Buddy Dive operation consists of a fully stocked dive retail shop, teaching facilities, rental gear, lockers, rinse tanks, and outdoor showers. All are located dockside, making it more convenient for guests to enjoy the boat dives.    Our private jetty enables our dive boats to pick you up from the hotel to go to the best dive sites from which many are just less than 20 minutes by boat away.                                                             As a PADI 5-star IDC and Universal Referral dive center, Buddy Dive offers a wide range of dive courses. Guests who would like to begin scuba diving, can start with a Discover Scuba Session and experience what it’s like to breathe underwater before taking a full course. For those who would like to continue their dive education there are experienced dive instructors ready to assist you to improve your skills and knowledge.

Highlights available while staying with us include:

            • Scuba dive or snorkel amongst the volcanic bubbles at Champagne.
            • Swim the Scotts Head Marine Reserve, a vast submerged volcanic crater, with huge drop-offs and walls, soaring pinnacles, bubbling underwater fumaroles, all teeming with aquatic life.
            • Make friends with giant barracudas, sea turtles and sting rays at the curiously named Suburbs dive site.
            • Discover dazzling and rare underwater creatures such as frogfish, flying gurnards, flamingo tongue snails, golden crinoids and Caribbean reef squid.
            • Explore the mysterious 18th century wreck at Cottage Point
            • Swim through the pinnacle at Scott’s Head Reef to enter a volcanic crater on the other side.
            • Above water you can also view whales and dolphins. Sperm whales come to breed in the waters around Dominica, and these are just one of the 22 species of cetacean identified in our waters. Whalewatching trips also leave direct from our jetty.
