Come and enjoy a fun filled day with lots to see and do with this Dominica Eco Excursion. Take in the panoramic views that you'll want to capture with your camera.
First you will meet your English-speaking guide near your Dominica cruise ship terminal. Then you will be escorted to your air conditioned van and head out for your first stop at the beautiful Champagne Reef. During your natural highlights excursion, your guide will be giving you lots of information about the area as well as some local stories and history.
At the reef, you will encounter a unique phenomenon. You will be swimming through bubbles that are created from the geo-thermal springs running underneath, creating what appears to be millions of tiny champagne bubbles and hence the name, Champagne Reef. This portion of the excursion will last approximately 45 minutes to an hour. Guests may also choose to just stay on the beach area. If you prefer, you can bring along your snorkel gear or rent it ($6.00 USD for fins and mask).
Your route will take you through the Botanical Gardens (approximately 15 minutes from Champagne Reef) where you will enjoy the variety of tropical foliage that is native to the beautiful island of Dominica. While driving through the scenery at this lush garden, keep in mind this is just one of the many locations on this excursion for picture postcard photos.
Then your guide will take you to Titou Gorge (approximately 15 minutes away) which was a filming location for the movie, Pirates of the Caribbean 2. From the parking lot, you will take a 5-10 minute walk to the gorge itself. Then you will wade through the water for approximately 2 minutes to the natural cavernous area that is simply breathtaking. No worries, the depth will be about waist high at it's deepest. You may also have the opportunity to climb the falls, weather depending, and swim belts will be provided. Your time at Titou Gorge will be approximately 45 minutes.
Then on to Trafalgar Falls, which is approximately a 30-minute drive away. Sit back and relax in your air conditioned van as you pass some more amazing scenery. Once you have arrived at the falls parking lot, you will have a ten-minute walk under the rain forest canopy to the viewing lookout point. There you will enjoy the sight of the Father Falls (125 ft/38 meters) and the Mother Falls (75 ft/23 meters) and then follow your guide to the collection pool at the bottom of the falls - dip your toes in or take a refreshing plunge all while listening to the cascading sounds surrounding you. Your time at Trafalgar Falls is approximately 45 minutes.
During this excursion, you will also have the opportunity to enjoy a panoramic view from Morne Bruce overlook of the city and your ship below. Please note, however, the itinerary order can change depending upon traffic.
Finally, you will be taken back to your Dominica cruise ship pier.
