Dominica's Dive Sites

The following Dive Sites have been given ratings based on both the currents and the required skill level of a diver. However, as with all dives, plans can change daily. The instructor or divemaster will generally begin the week with easier dives and increase the level of difficulty of the dive site as the week progresses. Given the right conditions, there is no reason why divers should not do a more advanced site on a particular day. Remember, the site destination is determined by the individual instructor or divemaster onboard. He or she is in charge and will let you know whether or not it is safe to dive a site.

Here is a lisitng of Dive Operators in Dominica.
