Commonwealth of Dominica Diving Centres

All diving centres in Dominica are on the Caribbean side of the island. You can hire equipment from them but it is much cheaper if you bring your own. Dominica is a small island so you don't have to restrict yourself to one dive operator and can check out the diving in the different areas.

Cabrits Dive Centre
Cabrits dive shop

Offer diving in the North of the island, on the Caribbean side. Owned and run by British couple Helen and Peter Hepp since 2005. Their dive sites are all a short boat trip away. The dive shop is just a 5 minute drive from the jetty. They drive you in the truck, or may pick you up by boat. They have two boats - see the picture below. Helen especially is very helpful and will put you in touch with baby sitters or tour guides if necessary. A PADI Five Star Centre.

Cabrits boats

East Carib Dive

East Carib Dive boat, copyright Harald Zahn Situated on the beach of Salisbury, in the middle of the West coast. Run since 2002 by Harald Zahn who speaks German and English, and his French wife Beatrice who speaks French, English, German, Italian and Spanish. They have two dive boats, one for close-in diving and one for visiting sites further afield like Scotts Head. Offer relaxed diving and an idyllically situated beach bar. The dive centre is on the beach, reached by a steep set of steps down from the road. Very friendly: Harald even let our four-year old go on the boat with us. The place to go if you want uncrowded diving from a palm-fringed setting.

"Boat and equipment in good condition...well taken care of. HIGH value for dollar. Always safe and well guided. Compared to the others ALDive is the best dive operation on the island, in my opinion, having tried several of the others. "

"Based in Soufriere so very short boat rides out to dives. We have dived there on 3 holdays. Karen and team can't do enough to help and the team are all competent, and really pleasant. All the diving is excellent. The team are responsive to divers' wants and needs. We had our best ever dive here with Oscar - a night dive of magnificent sights and (safe) adventure! Best dive operator we've dived with - diving is varied and always interesting and no long boat rides to the sites. Karen Moise is the owner/manager and will make every effort to meet all your needs - car hire, accommodation, recommendations, hikes/tours. Would and will dive there again - well organised, good value, great divemasters, small groups, packages, their own accommodation right by the sea, great location in the marine reserve"
Sue, France, 2009
