Very nice group (16) trip to Dominica. Good dive operation (Dive Dominica)
with large catamaran dive boat. Plenty of room on the boat. Two dives each
moring after buffet breakfast at the hotel. Back by 1:00pm and usually to
the hotel pool or off on an island tour. Fort Young Hotel was probably the
best hotel on the island but still lacked water pressure and hot water at
times. The diving was easy and saw lots of small stuff (seahorse x2)
Biggest things were turtles which were common. Visibility was poor by my
prior Caribbean standards, but still ok for a nice relaxing dive. No
current and nice warm water.  Dominica is a beautiful island, but very
undeveloped. No big resorts, etc. The major town of Roseau is very
"3rd worldish". Population only 71,000. We did 2 nice island
tours and saw alot more of the island. Recommend seeing the island since
there's not many left still undeveloped.
