Dive Fest DominicaDominica Wins Again!

When prizes are awarded by the people who have chosen to spend their hard earned money to visit somewhere, it seems much more relevant than if awarded by some arbitrary judge!

So we are proud that every year we perform well in these awards and this year we took First place in Macro!

Healthy colourful reefs with award winning macro and photography opportuniities in the morning, whales or waterfalls in the afternoon.....warm hot spring with a cold kubuli (locally brewed award winning beer) to bring in the night. Does it get any better than this?


Why Choose Dominica?

  • Tropical Beauty
  • Natural Attractions & Activities
  • Superb Diving
  • Untouched Reefs

Amongst the Caribbean island chain there is small island little known to many Caribbean travellers. Rich in all things natural, Dominica is an eco-tourists paradise, with dramatic mountains, dozens of waterfalls, the world’s second largest boiling lake, cool rivers with water so clean you can drink it, natural hot springs to sooth the body and best of all an underwater world that rivals any in the Caribbean and perhaps the world.

Dominica’s reefs are becoming known as one of the best kept secrets in the Caribbean, but recently the word has been getting out with “Scuba Diving Magazine” in their annual “Top 100 Issue” rating Dominica as #1 for “Healthiest Marine Environment” and #3 for Top Dive Destination, among other awards.

It may be a little more difficult to get here, but the best things in life are worth working for!

Whatever your pleasure, if it's Nature, Culture or friendly people, come to Dominica and experience the Caribbean the way it used to be.

Dominica & the DWA: a Dive Holiday to remember!

Scuba Diving in DominicaWhy Choose the Dominica Watersports Association?

Our association consists of all Dive Centers in Dominica and most Watersports operators.

Our operational standards for safety and conservation are so high they have been adopted as National Standards. We believe that the Caribbean’s best diving also deserves the most professional dive centers.

While in Dominica, you dive with a member of the Dominica Watersports Association (DWA). DWA members are responsible for ensuring that all safety standards are met and followed by all operators. We also put considerable effort into developing the tourism market, educating children about the need for sustainable tourism practices and conservation of our natural resources, and developing safety standards and procedures for all watersports operators.
