Lucky me. I was sent to Dominica with my husband who is doing some contract work here. I've done seven dives in three days and plan to do many more. So far I've seen a school of Caribbean squid and a Common octopus. The diving is fantastic! (It's suppose to be one of the top five dive sites in the world.) The reefs are healthy and there aren't many divers. Dominica is known as the nature island because of its coral reefs and tropical rain forests. It is a volcanic island with mountains that rise almost 5000 feet in the air. The people are friendly and the children are well-behaved.
