This excursion takes you to northern Dominica, starting with a boat ride along the Indian River – named after the Indians that lived here centuries ago. Thick mangroves line the banks and as you cruise along, you’ll likely spot birds and giant crabs lurking within their roots and trunks. Keep an eye out for the House Of Calypso. This wooden shack doesn’t look like much, but it had a starring role in the Pirates Of The Caribbean 2: Dead Man’s Chest. At the end of the route, you’ll stop off at Bush Bar to try their signature cocktail – a mix of local cask rum, cinnamon and passion fruit. You’ll then continue on to the next part of the tour, which is to Salisbury Beach. This volcanic, mountain-backed stretch of sand is popular for the three different coral reefs, one of which is within swimming distance of its shore. You’ll have two hours free time here. Strap on a snorkel to get a glimpse of the tropical fish, rent a kayak and go for a paddle, or kick back and relax on a sunlounger. You’ll receive a complimentary drink, and there’s free Wi-Fi, too.
