Comments I took a group of eight to Dominica this month. Some divers chose the 5-day package, some the 7-day. We also had one diver who got certified on the trip.

Billy and Samantha Lawrence are doing an excellent job! Billy knows just about everything there is to know about diving, Dominica, and what's underwater there. I've been to Dominica many times before, but Billy took us to dive sites I hadn't yet seen, including wrecks! Our night dive was absolutely amazing!! We saw slipper lobsters, octopus, channel crabs, a flying gurnard, decorator crabs, snake eels, orange ball corallimorphs, and much more.

Aldive currently has an open boat that is very comfortable for six or eight divers. They are planning to get a larger boat in the future. Their staff (we enjoyed Kieran, Odell and Francis on this trip) are fun, good divemasters and extremely helpful. We had two senior citizens on this trip, and they were well cared for.

There is fresh drinking water on board, and fresh fruit for a surface interval snack, which is perfect. They will put a tarp up if requested, for some shade during the surface interval.

I have dived with a bigger dive operation on Dominica, but would recommend Aldive as my first choice. Give them a call and book your next trip!
