Cabrits Dive Center was great.  Always picked up on time, great DMs and
Captain Pete is fun and a good guy.  Helen is also a great hostess and full
of information about the island.  Very nice dive boats, a 20 ft. aluminum
boat for small groups, and then Momma's Money II for larger groups, (5 or
more). It has a cover and a head.
Watch your stuff, things do get stolen out of the rooms sometime.  Don't
drive in Dominica, It's left hand side and the roads are very narrow,
better to hire a driver.
People are very friendly.  They do use the ocean resource, so don't expect
to see a lot of large fish, lobster or even octopus,  you see a few of
these, but not many.  There are also fish traps on the bottom capturing
everything bigger than an opening in chicken wire.  People need to eat. The
traps are for their own use, not commercial.
Dominica is still a good value.  It takes a little flying to get there, and
the runway starts in a canyon and planes sometimes cannot land due to
cloudy weather.  We had to return all the way to San Juan and try again the
next day.
