Meet your driver by your Dominica Roseau cruise pier and hop on board your transportation for a scenic 25-minute drive to the snorkel and water sports excursion facility. On your journey there, you will pass the picturesque village of Pointe Michel.
On arrival at the facility, you will meet your PADI certified Dive Master who will be your snorkel guide for the Champagne reef snorkel part of this combo cruise excursion. You will be provided with comfortably fitting snorkel gear, a brief safety orientation and tips on how to use the gear and get the most out of your snorkeling in the Dominica. Your snorkeling gear includes mask, snorkel, fins and snorkel vest. Please indicate the gender and shoe size for each participant at the time of booking.
Your guide will show you how to put the snorkel gear on and then lead you to the water and to the Champagne Reef. Your snorkeling experience starts right from the shore so no boat ride is needed. You will walk down to the beach, your guide will assist you with your gear and then lead you into the water. The reef starts just 3 yards out so very little swimming is involved getting to it. You will see how the underwater geothermal springs vent gasses in the form of thousands of warm bubbles, creating a feeling of swimming through an infinite glass of Caribbean Sea champagne!
The reef itself is impressive and is home to tropical marine life including lobster and parrot fish and is a permanent habitat of Hawksbill turtles. You never know what Mother Nature will show you during your snorkel. The reef also has vibrantly colored corals and sponges. Please note that you will not be able to stand up on the reef and should have basic swimming skills. The snorkel guide will be in the water with you to point out marine life and to assist if needed.
After snorkeling, your Dominica shore excursion guide will lead you back to shore and return to the water sports facility where there are showers, changing rooms, a souvenir store and a coffee shop with refreshments available.
The second part of your Dominica Shore Excursion is just a short 15-minute transfer to the volcano Soufriere Sulphur Hot Springs. Hidden in Dominica's rich volcanic region, you will enjoy relaxing in a warm, rejuvenating warm sulphur water in one of the pools filled with the volcanic activities in the Soufriere Hills. The springs are renowned for their reported ability to reduce stress, cure rheumatism, and other ailments. And more importantly, they just feel good! You will have approximately one hour to relax and enjoy the beautiful surrounding in nature's hot tub.
Your guide and transportation will then return to your Dominica Roseau cruise ship pier after you snorkel and hot springs shore excursion adventure.
