7 days discovering Dominica by superyacht

7 days discovering Dominica by superyacht

Day 1
/7

Up the Indian River

Dominican-Coast

Begin your vacation from the best anchorage and popular starting point for luxury yacht charters in Dominica — Prince Rupert Bay. From here a local guide can paddle you up the magical Indian River where the huge swamp bloodwood trees overhang the channel and their roots twist through the banks.

Look out for fish, crabs and surprisingly tame herons as the canopy meets to create a natural cathedral. Later explore the now abandoned Fort Shirley in Portsmouth; this 18th century British garrison is now picturesque ruins with lovely views over the Bay. As the daylight begins to fade, head up the hillside at The Champs Bar to watch the sunset across Prince Rupert Bay.

Prince Rupert Bay

Prince-Rupert-Bay

There’s so much to see nearby it’ is worth the extra day at this secluded anchorage to explore inland once more. Close to Portsmouth is the protected Cabrits National Park which covers reefs, wetlands and rainforest. Hire a local guide to help you explore the beautiful rainforest that clothes the island and it will be easy to see why part of the island has been designated a Unesco World Heritage Site.

Local guides can tailor hikes for every ability and it’'s well worth the trip to discover this very different part of the Caribbean. It is so untouched by the modern world, it'’s said that if Columbus were to come back today, Dominica is the only island he would recognise.

Dominica is also unusual in the Caribbean as it has precious few beaches as it'’s mostly far too steep, but Prince Rupert Bay has a very pleasant one — perfect for relaxing with a sundowner and cooling your toes after a day of jungle trekking.

Chaudiere Pool

Chaudiere-Pool

In the morning, take a half-day trip across to the northeast corner of the island and the Chaudiere Pool. This perfect pool, set among lush tropical vegetation is fed by a small waterfall and surrounded by rocks. You can swim, jump and if you’'re brave enough, dive from the cliffs above…

Head back to your yacht for the short cruise south to the middle anchorage,– just off the Castaways Hotel in Mero. This lies just a mile or so North of the Macoucherie river.
