Dominica, also known as ‘The Nature Island’, is a paradise for scuba diving lovers. Unspoiled and unforgettable, the seascape surrounding the island is as breathtaking as its towering mountains bathed in tropical mists. The water is clear, the marine life varied and the weather warm enough to spend an entire day in the sea.

The waters here are so good in fact that Dominica is the only country in the world where a pod of mighty sperm whale resides year-round! On dedicated whale-watching trips, sightings of these majestic creatures are common, along with dolphin pods, humpback and killer whales.

There are dive sites all along Dominica’s west coast, many of which reflect the steep and dramatic topography topside, with steep drop-offs, walls, and volcanic pinnacles. With the incredible abundance of wildlife, Dominica will truly be one of your most enjoyable dives in the Caribbean.

SPECIAL OFFER

Discover Dominica have teamed up with Dive Worldwide to offer one lucky traveller £500 off their next diving trip to the island! Simply answer the question correctly here to win: https://bit.ly/3bsOB5Q

Why Every Diver Should Be A Rescue Diver (Watch Video)

Published

on

Why Every Diver Should Be A Rescue Diver! I’ve got three reasons why every diver should take a Rescue Diver course. The world would be a better place!

Rescue Diver is mine – and a lot of my Instructor buddies’ – favorite course to teach. A well-run Rescue Diver course should be heavily practical and feature realistic scenarios. It expands your vision to include situational awareness and give you the knowledge and skills to react should an accident occur.

Think resuscitation is hard on land? Wait until you’re given rescue breaths in water whilst towing the victim! It’s a fantastic confidence booster, especially for divers who are more naturally anxious or nervous.

Thanks for watching! D.S.D.O James
