It's just a 15-minute drive south of Roseau through the picturesque village of Pointe Michel to the water sports facility at Champagne. Champagne is Dominica's premier diving and snorkeling site and rates among the top five snorkeling sites in the Caribbean. Underwater geothermal springs vent gasses in the form of thousands of warm bubbles giving you a feeling of swimming through a giant glass of Champagne. The reef here is quite spectacular with a myriad of sea life including sponges, lobster, parrotfish and a resident population of hawksbill turtles. You will be outfitted with high quality snorkel gear and listen to an orientation of the facility and the adventure that awaits you on the reef. Tours of the reef are led by professional PADI-certified dive masters who will instruct you on the correct use of your gear and brief you on what you are likely to see and experience once in the water. After your tour, enjoy the comfort and convenience of showers and changing rooms, refreshments, a gift shop and a sundeck overlooking the beautiful Caribbean. You will make you way back to the pier by taking a scenic drive through the village of Pointe Michele, stopping en route at the St Luke's Primary Museum.
