Comments [None]We had a wonderful week at Castle Comfort Resort. The island is a young island in years compared to most Caribbean islands and as a result has very healthy reefs and rain forest. The rain forest is the healthiest I have ever seen and hiking is incredible. The food at Castle comfort is delicious and staff very welcoming. I have been to Dominica twice before and feel that the reefs are unique in that there are species such as Golden crinoids, sea whips and gorgeous azure vase sponges and huge barrel sponges.The reefs are very healthy and we saw frog fish, sea horses and Flying Gunards which you you don't see often in the Caribbean. I feel the sea life is among the best in number and variety that we have seen in the Caribbean. There aren't as many bigger fish but the beautiful dive environment and different species of smaller fish make up for that. The shore dive in front of Castle Comfort is great, especially at sun down.
