Discover Dominica, the Caribbean’s nature island, at your own pace and sense of adventure. Activities include diving, snorkelling, whale watching, hiking in the rainforest, relaxing in a natural spa and plenty more.
Due to hurricane damage in 2017, the Buddy Dive Centre in Dominica will be closed until the end of this year, with a view to re-opening in 2019, and we are therefore unable to offer this diving itinerary.
