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.

The Fort Young is perfectly placed for anyone looking for the best in diving vacations. Not only do we have a fully equipped onsite dive shop, but our private jetty enables our dive boats to pick you up from the hotel – and many of the best dive sites are less than 20 minutes by boat from the Fort Young.

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.
