Spend your time in port in Dominica exploring this Caribbean island gem by kayak. Start your shore excursion with pickup from the cruise terminal, then set out on your river-to-sea expedition after a safety briefing and paddling demonstration by experienced guides.
Slip on your life vest and climb inside your two-person, sit-on-top kayak — easy to navigate for both novices and those with more experience. Enjoy the thrill of bumping down light rapids on the Layou River — Dominica’s longest river — stopping to take in the scenery as you navigate toward the clear waters of the Caribbean Sea.
Admire the picturesque fishing village of Layou, where fishing boats back from early morning expeditions line the shore. For a memorable experience, enjoy the opportunity to swim where the river meets the sea.
A short paddle back up the river will take you to your exit point, where your efforts are rewarded with complimentary rum punch and fresh fruit. Sample local cuisine, prepared for you by a riverside community, before return transport to Dominica and drop-off at the cruise port.
