Dominica continues to prove itself as a top Caribbean destination. With increased interest in The Nature Island and to meet demand for its distinct tourism offerings, Dominica welcomes travelers this fall and winter with new destination experiences, seasonal hotel specials, and additional air access.  

“With the World Creole Music Festival around the corner, we’re thrilled to be able to offer more robust hotel packages and activities for visitors,” said Hon. Denise Charles, Dominica’s Minister for Tourism. “It’s been an impressive year for Dominica in terms of accolades, from being named to Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Awards as the top island in the Caribbean for the second year in a row, to being recognized in Time Magazine World’s Greatest Places for 2023. We’re excited to close out the year strong and keep the momentum going for 2024.” 


Although it’s known as The Nature Island, Dominica offers visitors some of the most amazing destination experiences below the water. From swimming in thermal springs to unique wall dives, underwater landscapes around Dominica are just as lush as the island itself. There are a number of operators who offer diving experiences including Dive Dominica, Nature Island Dive, and Cabrits Dive Center, and now, Fort Young, an oceanfront hotel located in Dominica’s capital of Roseau, makes it easy for visitors to stay and dive right from one site with their newly expanded dive operation. 

In addition to diving, Dominica’s sperm whales have been receiving ample attention as the government is working on a conservation plan, which will be the first of its kind, to ensure that these majestic mammals continue to thrive while allowing visitors to safely and respectfully encounter these popular residents. As the only island in the Caribbean where these whales can be spotted year-round, whale-watching tours are a popular excursion. Swimming with the whales is also an option, but it has traditionally been extremely difficult to plan and book, which is why several of the island’s hotels are now making it easy for guests by offering hotel packages that feature this exclusive experience and include the necessary permits.  

From December 1st to December 10th, award-winning wildlife photographer Amos Nachoum will lead a whale encounter experience for a small group of guests. Guests can choose from a five- or seven-night stay, and each package includes breakfast, a three-course lunch and four-course dinner on arrival day, transportation to and from the airport or port, transportation to and from the dive boat, daily instructor-led yoga, half-day of snorkeling/kayaking in Soufriere Marine Reserve and an on-property presentation by Amos Nachoum.

In partnership with award-winning underwater photographer Nadia Aly, InterContinental Dominica Cabrits Resort & Spa is offering a series of sperm whale swims now through 2024 with the next tour coming up December 16-27, 2023. Tours are bookable for six or 10 days to allow the guest to opt for the longer option and explore the island on land as well. For more information visit the resort’s website here.
