5.0 out of 5 stars A little piece of heaven 20 Feb 2006
By Steve
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
For the lucky few who have visited Dominica, you will know that it deserves it's title of the Nature Island of the Caribbean. This little book is great for divers and snorkellers who need to know the best dive sites around the island, many of which are only accessible by boat. It also gives useful cultural background and history, great photos, and information on the best hikes into the rain forest, where you can find amazing waterfalls and some stunning volcanic landscapes. Well worth the money, even if you've been there before (and I'm about to go for my 4th trip). An essential for the adventurous traveller.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rare Informative Guide 24 Mar 2000
By Benjamin Starr - Published on Amazon.com
With so few informative guides available on Dominica, this guide is truly a gem written about a gem of an island. Descriptions of some of the finest and most unusual dives in the Caribbean, including down the crater of a volcano and through hot bubbling springs called "Champagne." The sea life in Dominica is more prolific and untouched than anywhere else in the Caribbean and this guide tells you EVERYTHING you need to know about getting to this offbeat destination, staying there, and seeing the sites both above and below water.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful for planning 14 Sep 2007
By Giordano Bruno - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Not quite as thorough as the Lonely Planet Diving in Puerto Rico, but very helpful for deciding where to start. An added bonus is the short chapter describing inland hikes in Dominica, an island as stunning above water as below. I like the organization or these guides, with excellent icons placed conspicuously to help me skip what I don't need to know.

Good guide except that we couldn't find one of the snorkling sites described just by following their directions.
