Dominica Snorkeling

The Commonwealth of Dominica is an island nation in the Caribbean Sea that lies between Guadeloupe and Martinique. Its official language is English, although many there also speak a French creole. The island houses 70,000 inhabitants across 290 miles of tropical forests, rivers, lakes, streams, waterfalls and over a thousand plant species, where the temperature averages around 85 degrees F during the day and 72 degrees F at night.

Snorkelers in Dominica can view the island's live volcanic activity in only 4-15 feet of water. These conditions allow for great marine life among the reef, including a variety of fish, sponges, coral, octopus and squid. Snorkelers can also see a 250 year-old wreck that sits on the reef, just 18 feet under. But Dominica is best-known for its unique champagne reef. 100 meters off-shore, and 3 to 80 feet below the water's surface, this warm, sub-aquatic sulphur spring creates the champagne-like bubbles that lend the reef its name.
