SECRET BAY'S NEW BOAT TOUR REVEALS THE ISLAND LIKE NEVER BEFORE

By joyoftravel.ca news services

"Waitukubuli National Trail by Sea was an eye-opening experience for us. It revealed a different beauty we had not seen."

 

The Waitikubuli National Trail is the Caribbean's first long distance trail, covering 115 miles throughout the island. Designed to be hiked over several days, it's divided into 14 segments that run through local villages, the Carib territory, and ruins of 18th century French settlements, where runaway slaves escaped. We're now offering a different way of seeing some of the highlights of segments 13 and 14... by sea.

It's a leisurely boat ride from Secret Bay's property to Capuchin, the northern most point on the island. Along the way your guide will explain the sites you can see on land, take some breaks to snorkel around the reefs and prepare you a light snack and drink.

"Waitukubuli National Trail by Sea was an eye-opening experience for us," said our first guests to take this trip. "It revealed a different beauty we had not seen. The little known northern tip is full of majestic cliffs, hidden waterfalls and pristine reefs submerged in turquoise water - real treasures hard to access by land.

"From Secret Bay's boat, we enjoyed the amazing richness of the landscape - picturesque villages, unspoilt beaches, and stretches of dense-green forest above them. We stopped at Split Rock [pictured above] to snorkel. What a stunning spot! Swimming between two huge underwater columns was perhaps the best snorkeling experience we've ever had. Don, our super-cool captain, told us these spots account for Dominica being among world's top snorkeling destinations.

"This trip had it all: speed-boating, quiet sight-seeing, and fascinating stories about the island."
