Even though the spare battery I brought for the little camera was unexpectedly dead (oops!), we still managed to get lots of good underwater photos on our one day of snorkeling in Dominica. Both beaches are located on the southwestern side of Dominica.
Our first stop was Champagne Beach where underwater fumaroles create lots of tiny bubbles, hence the name.

The amount of fish and clarity of the water made this an absolutely unforgettable experience. Plus, the water was a lovely temperature and we hit the beach around 10am so it wasn’t too sunny or crowded. A huge bus-load of cruise folk showed up as we were leaving, so our timing was perfect. It’s a $2 fee per person to visit here.
lots and lots of tangs
Our second stop was Scott’s Head, known for the steep drop just off shore that is great for both snorkeling and diving. There were a ton of fish here and the sun had come out which really made the reef colors pop.

We probably spent a total of two hours in the water and would highly recommend both these snorkeling spots.
