Dominica has a rich and vibrant history and culture, and the ground on which Fort Young Hotel was built is no exception.

Well before the term “social distancing” entered our everyday vocabulary, it was an innate feature of a vacation in Dominica. With miles of untouched terrain and adventures best embarked upon solo or in small groups, Dominica makes it easy to retreat to the natural world and soak up the healing wonders of the island. Here’s a taste of what your social distancing-friendly vacation could look like.
Just beneath the sea surface surrounding the Fort Young Hotel dock or a short boat ride away, you can have an intimate experience with nature—just you and the clear, blue sea. For the aquatic adventurer, this activity is just as enjoyable alone, if not more so.

2. Scuba Diving
Get your scuba certification and check off a deep-sea exploration off your bucket list during your stay here. Day or night, you’ll get to have incredible, unforgettable up-close experiences with native aquatic species like sperm whales and sea sponges.

3. Water Sports
Jet skiing, flyboarding, kayaking, boating—each of these activities is best enjoyed alone or in a small group. Amid your venture on the open sea, we recommend slowing down from the rush and pausing to take in the unique view of Roseau’s coastline from a new perspective.
Not all adventure has to be fast-paced. A leisurely afternoon hike through the forest reserves or a days-long trek along the Waitukubuli Trail is a great way to explore the Nature Island—free from crowds of people.

5. Wildlife Watching
Done informally on your own or in small, spaced-out guided tours, wildlife watching is a great social distancing-friendly adventure. Of course, it’s not an adrenaline-pumping adventure (unless spotting rare birds gets your heart going), but it’s an experience unlike anything you’d encounter at home.
