Fort Young Hotel Launches Dominica Dive Operation

Dominica is home to some of the best diving in the Americas and Fort Young Hotel is pleased to partner with Cline Group, led by dive expert William Cline, to launch Fort Young Dive. The new dive operation will be based from the shoppes at Fort Young with dives departing daily directly from the hotel’s dock.

Dominica has long been a treasured dive destination and Fort Young, with its prime location in the country’s capital city of Roseau along the shores of the Caribbean Sea, has played host to dive travelers from around the world for more than a decade. Now, with the launch of Fort Young Dive, under the consultation of Cline Group, Fort Young Hotel is poised to become the go-to dive destination in the Caribbean. Cline will be managing an immersive dive marketing program for the hotel and serving as dive operator.

“Fort Young is the perfect launch point for adventures below and above the surface. I am thrilled to be a part of their dive marketing program and look forward to bringing divers to the hotel and dive product.”
