It's a shame to pay a access to the Sea because the see is to everybody. And nothing justifies an entrance fee

If you are going to Dominica you need to snorkel at Champagne Reef. Lots of fish and swimming in the warm bubbles was so cool.

Snorkel guide, Bart was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The bubbles that give the area the name are really interesting and beautiful to see. The lunch was great.

it depends on the amount of time you have. you will need about 6-8 hours to do both. The only problem I see for you is that the Champagne beach gets very busy when a ship is in port, and the entrance into the water area of... More
