Description

This combination is the perfect way to experience an island that few have visited. It is known for the protection it has provided its lush terrain and that is the draw here. First of all you will visit Champagne, Dominica's premier snorkeling site, which in recent years has earned the reputation as being one of the top five underwater destinations in the world. The pristine waters of Champagne have been nicknamed as such due to the many tiny crystal bubbles that continuously rise from small volcanic geothermal fissures in the sea floor. Gliding through these bubbles is like swimming in a glass of champagne!

The reefs in these waters are quite spectacular as well; expect to see a myriad of sea life including sponges, lobster, parrot fish, turtles, sea horses, as well as a multitude of gorgeous multi-coloured hard and soft coral. Dry off a bit and then reboard your transportation.

You will enjoy scenic stops along the way as you travel towards the village of Laudat. On the way you will drive through the capital city Roseau and see the Botanical Gardens. At this point you will visit the Roseau Valley and become convinced of the protection that the government has given their tropical paradise. It is truly one of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean.

There will be photo stops at scenic locations until we reach the village of Laudat, where you will take a short walk, about 15 minutes, to the Ti Tou Gorge, one of the 'must-see' marvels of the island.

A 15-minute walk upon arrival will get you ready for the Ti Tou Gorge, the outlet of Freshwater Lake. There is nothing like this spot anywhere else on the island and, from our experience, anywhere else in the Caribbean. The name "Titou Gorge" means 'Little Throat Hole" in Creole and you will literally swim up the 'throat' of the mountain to a waterfall located inside the gorge. The gorge was formed thousands of years ago and is flanked by the rock walls that provide an intricate and breathtaking setting.

Just another short ride away, through the lovely village of Trafalgar, begins the trail leading to 2 of the island's most exquisite waterfalls. Only a 15-minute walk from where your vehicle stops is the viewing area of the falls. Those who are able to, under the supervision of the guide, can scramble over the boulders to the base of one of the falls where there is a pool for a refreshing swim. You can also find Hot Pools that will sooth any aches in your body.

Shore Excursions

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.

MOSTLY EXCEPTIONAL

We did a private whale watching tour which was incredible. The train ride in Sitka which we were not going to do at first was spectacular. Scenery, comfort - a wonderful way to see the area and spend our time. We signed up for a Mendenhall Glacier trip plus Salmon bake. This one was so very commercial and although the glacier and waterfall were above our expectations, a short time was given to walk there and view. This left out two of our party as they could not move as fast as needed to return in the time frame of one hour. Then the BAKE- the food was marginally ok. They were out of the most important SMORES ingredients. It is crazy but that was advertised (we were willing to break our diets ) and we looked forward to them and then disappointed. The people were nice. the area was pretty but that one I would strongly advise friend not to sign up for.

Great experience. The tours of the Louvre, and Notrre Dame were great. The guide even helped me try to get Eiffel tower admission tickets switched after I had booked them on the wrong date.
