Comments Recommend Castle Comfort Lodge as Dive Dominica is at their location and you can grab a tank and dive the house reef any time. We did 2-tank boat dives every day; had the same dive guides our whole trip (we were with a group of 12 friends). Food at Castle Comfort Lodge is good, and the lodge is quiet. If you want to go into town, it is an easy taxi ride. Dive guides are good to show interesting fish. House reef was fun for a couple of dives, too. The dive center has a place for your diving equipment, and the dive staff help take it on/off the boats. People are very friendly. I liked the way they tell you "we don't say goodbye in Dominica, we say until we see you again-please come back."
