I'm a snorkeling nut. When we take a 10 day cruise ship I usually have snorkeling planned for every port. Dominica was the one exception... look into Canyoning, its the first time I found an island where the coolest thing was not the reef.

Have been there several years ago. Great vacation. Most importantly, eat at Sister Sea Lodge in the N near Portsmoth. Fresh fish/lobster served on palm leaves. Best meals I have ever had in my life. Snorkelled Scotts Head S, think Douglas Bay N. Area in front of Picard Beach Cottages was supposedly great by pier, but rough when we were there, so did not attempt it. Any questions, be happy to try to answer, will be away for a few days. Also, rainforest hikes were great. Boiling Lake awesome.

Mark, It's a small world. I think I know Ana. I'm from the same area you guys are from.

Hi Linda, that would be crazy odds. 99.9% of people we know don't even know what Bonaire is? LOL Or Dominica.

Diane, Just curious, how did you get to Dominica? It seems like it would take a couple of days by air. Always wanted to go there but the journey just seemed so long that my vacation would be spent traveling to and from as there are no easy way to get there.

Well I checked with Orbitz Mickey, a 3 hour lay over in P.R. still makes the journey 7 hours. I guess I was just spoiled with the less than 4 hours it takes to get to Bonaire.

I believe we took American Eagle from San Juan. Certainly was easier than getting to Bonaire midweek.

On Dominica - Get in touch with Alexis (Picard resort has his contact number) and get him to take you to the secret beach. WOW! He will drop you off a a long, long way from shore and you can snorkel in (and out and in and out and in) forever. The most mind blowing snorkeling experience I've had.
