Many islands in the Caribbean offer water sports, Dominica is not excluded from this. But, sailing around the island here is somewhat different than other islands in the area.
The Caribbean and the Atlantic meet to make an interesting mix of water. You see shades of deep blue, turquoise, clear and other shades – all littered with tropical fish, coral and interesting sea creatures. Begin your trip in Portsmouth where you;ll jump on the boat and be taken around to see the cascading waterfalls nearby, the protected marine reserves and “Witch’s Hat” – a special rock formation that resembles just that.
I sailed throughout these waters on an overcast day. Rays of sun came through the clouds, though, and seagulls and parrots fluttered around. With each corner I turned, the mountains grew greener and more rugged.
If you’re traveling to Dominica, don’t miss the experience the island’s wet side. You might even see a sperm whale or a pod of dolphins hunting for dinner.
