    If you want a great thing to do on Dominica my recommendation
    would be get a taxi to take you to Champagne Reef.
    I am a certified scuba diver and we saw more marine life
    by snorkleing at this location than I ever had scuba diving.
    It is not a beach with sand but it is rocks entry and black sand
    after you get out about waist deep.
    This is a very clear visibility and bubbles coming out of the ocean
    floor which makes it very warm water with abundant marine life.
    If there for the first time you can hire a guide (J.T.) and he will
    point out the sea life that the normal person would not see. Like
    seahorses, flounder, eels, rays, lobster, octopus, squid, schools of
    varieties of fish you would not believe.

    To get there from the ship just hire cab driver to take you there
    as we had 4 of us for 30 dollars roundtrip ea and you don't pay till
    he brings you back to the ship. Air condition van that would hold
    8 passengers so the 4 of us had plenty of room and he also took
    us to some photo ops of the island along the way. When we got
    to the location of the reef he asked us what time to come back
    and pick us up and he was johhny on the spot getting us back to
    the ship with time to spare.

    There is a little bit of a walk to get to the beach reef but it
    is along a wood walkway for the snorklers.

    For Divers the web site is www.iriesafari.com and tell them
    you heard about it from Charlie on CruiseAddicts. And you can
    email them at underwater@iriesafari.com You will not be disappointed.

    If you have any other questions I will be glad to answer.
    BTW the guide only works for tips so you decide what to give him.
    I got my moneys worth and you will too.
