nature island dive is a first class outfit from the front office to the
captains to the dive guides; dove with several different dive guides. all
are excellent. we've become friends with them all.  simon, the owner, is
also a first rate photographer. we made 12 dives, all but one within the
soufriere caldera. diving here is wonderful. all short boat rides with only
a few fellow divers and surface intervals back at the dock. we stayed in
the galette cottages rented out through nature island dive--very
comfortable and functional with full facilities to cook (which we usually
do when we dive travel). dominica is a place to dive and lay back--not a
hot night life place. dominica can be a bit difficult to get to but it is
definitely worth it.  this was our second trip in two years and we'll be
heading back many more times.
