Request Guide

Dominica’s Boiling Lake has been named one of Earth’s most amazing water bodies by BBC, and rightfully so. The Boiling Lake, the second largest in the world is a bubbling lake within one of Dominica’s volcanic craters. The lake bubbles from earth’s core and is just another manifestation of the tremendous volcanic activity that defines Dominica.

Boiling Lake is a truly unique experience with not only a hike through changing forests as the mountains incline, but a look into other worldly terrain at the Valley of Desolation. The valley is an alien-like rock formation of clay, grey and white rock, marked by calcium and sulphur deposits and inhabited by interesting wildlife.

Thermal springs border the Valley of Desolation- teal, clear and grey waters- and pool between rocks, beneath thick forest cover. The valley is a natural sauna, with offers a range of benefits to its visitors.

Natural thermal pools soothe muscles and calm spirits. Clean, untouched water from Breakfast River, creeps through rock crevices secreting cool water for bottle-refills, and sulphur mud makes the perfect face mask. The lake itself is too hot for swimming but is simply a wonder to view. Violent bubbles emanate from its grey expanse and alien rock hug the shoreline. Towering mountains, often blanketed by eerie mist, secure the crater and reach up to blue skies above.

Dominica’s Boiling Lake is definitely one of the most challenging hikes on island. An intense trek up hill and through steaming valleys awaits the adventurous traveller wishing to experience one of Earth’s wonders.

Titou Gorge

Translated to “little hole”, Titou Gorge is an enchanting swimming hole, nestled in the beautiful, mountain-top community of Laudat. The gorge is known for its refreshing emerald water, which flows calmly down Titou’s canyon from the mountain heights. Rock towers above, bordering blue sky and forest canopy and giving room to penetrating rays of sunshine. Titou is best known for its iconic scene in Pirates of the Caribbean, Dead Man’s Chest, where Captain Jack Sparrow is seen tumbling down the gorge in a bone cage. 

A swim up Titou reveals a calm, emerald oasis, serenaded by chirping birds and rustling trees. A small waterfall greets daring swimmers and the deep pool is perfect for a cliff jump in. 

Titou Gorge is an amazing site for visitors to the island and is a must do on the way back from an intense Boiling Lake hike.

 

Ti Kwen Glo Cho

Dominica is a volcanic island from which manifests a myriad of wonders, from sulphur springs to ocean floor vents and boiling lakes. Ti Kwen is one of these. There are quite a few hot springs on island, but Ti Kwen is by far one of the best ways to experience the healing thermal waters of Dominica. A quaint family establishment, the hospitality at Ti Kwen makes the springs even more of a remarkable experience.

The lush gardens complement the stone pools and refreshing fruit juices from the bar are a well needed thirst-quencher after a hot soak. Ti Kwen’s Mini Zoo is also a delight for kids, making the location more than just a natural sauna, but a comprehensive nature experience.

Ti Kwen is most beautiful beneath moonlight, as the springs are enclosed in soaring cliffside and lie bare beneath the moon’s rays. At night, beneath rainfall, the hot springs are a perfect romantic get away and therapeutic experience bundled in one. Ti Kwen is a perfect way to wind down after an intense hike, as the hot and cold pools offer natural muscle therapy. This is definitely a must- do for anyone wishing to experience Dominica’s hot springs in an authentic setting.

  • 10 friends took a tour with Nahgi and Brany and we considered it to be a highlight of our 7 day cruise to 6 islands. We highly recommend this tour group and the Get Wet, Set Tour. We'll use Nahgi and Brany again when return to Dominica.

  • Really, look no further!

    I'm just going to be one more person adding on to the 5 star reviews here for the one and only Nahjie (and Nicky!), and if it's not clear to you already, please understand this is the person you need to get in touch with when you come to The Nature Island that is Dominica.

    We were fortunate enough to stay in his hand built cabin on the mountainside of Laudat, where you can escape all things city, and really live in the nature. And while we did plenty of things on our own (with his input of course), the one day we did spend with him was an absolute pleasure, leaving us wanting more! He is third generation island boy, who loves the island and her beauties, and takes great joy in sharing that with others. It's hard to stress how much your trip should have this man involved in it.

    I've traveled throughout the world quite a bit, slowly and intimately, meeting and getting to know locals and travelers alike. Nahjie is one of the special ones who will without a doubt stand out.

    My only regret is not spending more time with these guys doing ALL the things, but that requires more than just 4 or 5 days on this island. I'll definitely be back for more.

  • We have had the privilege of visiting all but a few of the islands in the Caribbean. Last year we spent a day with our guide Nahgie at Just Go Dominica. It was beyond any doubt the best excursion we had ever done off a cruise ship. In fact it was so incredible that we booked the same exact cruise this year to be able to spend a second day on the island with Nahgie! We now consider him a friend and look forward to being with him again.

    Here are the things that made these two tours so special and that make this business among the best you will find:

    — Great Communication. From the first time I contacted Just Go Dominica, they were prompt and detailed in all their responses.

    —Reaonable Rates. We did a private excursion and have spent more on large group excursions. Very fair pricing. If you go I would encourage you to be sure to tip well! With the prices they charge and the service they give it’s the right thing to do.

    — The Island. Wow! Don’t be put off by the port itself. The hurricane a few years ago devastated the island and it’s obviously not recovered yet. But once you get away from the port you will be in paradise. The waterfalls, the jungle, the views and the diversity of things to do. Just amazing.

    — The Service. The personal touches of our tours were beyond wonderful. Our guide would stop and show us plants and spices and fruits, some of which we had never experienced before. He brought us to places like Titou Gorge and safely led us on an adventure we loved so much we repeated it with him this year. Hard to explain how amazing Titou Gorge is (where they filmed parts of Pirates of the Caribbean). Don’t miss it and if you are brave jump off the cliff to go in rather than just swim! Kayaking on a completely deserted Mountain Lake. Swimming in water falls with almost no one else there. Eating a homemade island lunch. Snorkeling at Champagne reef. Unreal. Finishing the day with an amazing dip in a very hot natural volcanic hot tub.

    We still feel like we have only scratched the surface of this island. But we will never forget it. My goal is to go back on a land-based trip and try out the scuba diving which is supposed to be legendary and do more exploration with our new friend.

    I hope others get to experience this beautiful island and the unparalleled service of Just Go Dominica!

  • The Get Set Wet tour with Nahgie was a fantastic, thrilling, and unique experience! We got to enjoy local food, snorkel on pristine coral reefs, and have great conversations with Nahgie. Nahgie was welcoming, energetic, patient, and helped us make the most of our one day on Dominica! We loved meeting his dad and getting a small sense of life on this beautiful island! Highly recommend!

  • Absolute highlight of our Caribbean vacations

    My girlfriend and I traveled Dominica this June for 1 week. We did not want to rent a car and had basicly no idea how to travel, get food or find the beautiful places there. But this is non of a problem if you go with Naghie. He is a terrific, relaxed and young guide who truly lives with his wife & little son the beauty of Dominica. We spend 3 days with him hiking the boiling lake, seeing Victoria Falls and Emerald Pools and snorcheling in the champange reef! Naghie picked us up in the morning and brought us back every evening. Even sitting in the car with him is amazing. He knows a lot about the history, the nature and the secret places you definitely miss if you are on your own. Dominica's nature is just a outstanding and everything you need to escape from everyday life! We can guarantee going with Naghie will be one of the best things you can do on Dominica!

  • Look no further, I wish I could give 10 stars

    I am really glad we booked with Nahgi and Brany the boiling lake hike.
    It is a very challenging hike, even though we are experienced hikers.
    But our tour guide Brany was really helpful, encouraging, and very knowledgable. Talked about history, geography and the flora and fauna on the way.
    When you meet Nahgi and his team you can see on them,they love what they do, they are not after your money but genuinely want to show you their beloved country and they want you to have a good time.
    I'm so happy we came across Just Go Dominica, and please don't look further, this is your company to do an adventure with.

  • My hubby and i did the boiling lake hiking trip which was recomended by our hotel host.
    Arrangements were made the day before, we were told what time we should be ready as our tour guide would come to pick us up.
    Thus is when we met our tour guide Nahjie, He was on time and our trip started it was about 30 minutes drive from our hotel to the point of trekking.
    One important highlight here is if you're not in good shape meaning health wise this trip is not for you.
    The time spent on this trip app 8 hrs we are on the older side so it took us longer, however i must commend this young man on the great job he did in taking care of us through out the entire trip.
    NAHJIE is a true professional and very dedicated in what he does not to mention very knowledgeable in what he does as a tour guide, darn his energy is like a young stallion.
    He took time to guide and inform us of areas , plants , history etc.
    We were running out of time and i was beginning to get worried but he assured me that if night step in and we are not through he would call for back up and extra lights , that at was a relief to my being..since we are 48 and 64.
    Unfortunately we did not make it directly to the end of the lake , that where the water flows i think because it was getting late and we were more concerned getting back out to starting point, so we started trekking back out ahead of the two others.
    It rained during that time so that made it even harder ,NAHJIE did explain to us though that after Hurricane maria in 20 17 the trail was ruined and nothing was done to maintain it. I must say for me is was rough trekking.
    It was an experience and a great achievement. We did it and made it through safely with the help and guidance of this wonderful fella ( NAHJIE)
    When we finally made it back to our starting point we were happy and felt a flash of relief.
    Nahjie took us to get some thing to eat and back to the hotel.
    We also had the pleasure of riding wit him back the the airport the following day.
    My take on this review altogether is ,boiling lake is a wonder of the world I recommend you to see if you plan to visit Dominica, its a one in a life time thing to do.
    Second please do not hesitate to take that opportunity to meet and allow NAHJIE to be your guide.
    You sure would have a great time and memories of a life time.Dominica

Mero Beach

A long stretch of sand and vibrant beach life mark the ambiance of Mero Beach. Located just about twenty minutes from Dominica’s capital, Mero is a favourite for locals and visitors alike. Calm waters make this beach ideal for a swim or snorkel and the long stretch of sand is perfect for soaking in some warm Caribbean sun. Beach bars and stalls dot the shoreline, and on a busy day there is an endless flutter of live music, fresh sea food, and liquor concoctions. 

Mero is a spectacular location for anyone looking to bask in rays of sun and simply have a good old Caribbean lime on the beach.

Cabrits, Fort Shirley

Probably one of Dominica’s most important historical sites, Fort Shirley is famous for the revolt of the West India Regiment in 1802 which resulted in the freedom of all British slaves. Perched above an open bay, Fort Shirley was constructed for its important geo-political nature, serving as a defence battalion during French/British wars for ownership of the island during the colonial era.

Since then, the fort has undergone various restoration works and holds the histories of a tumultuous past within its barracks and cannons. Today, Fort Shirley is a beautiful piece of colonial architecture, perfectly poised atop a hill open to the bay below.

A visit to the fort may feel like a step back in time. As one stands next to original 18th century cannons, the scene begs visitors to delve into the wars, peoples and events which moulded the French Creole culture of Dominica.

Cold Soufriere

Bubbling from a volcanic crater within Morne Aux Diables is the Cold Soufriere. While Dominica is known for its hot springs and boiling lakes which spurt hot sulphur water from below ground, Cold Soufriere is a unique volcanic manifestation. The water here is not hot, but cold, though the same features as other hot springs are evident.

Sulphuric gas fills the air and the rock formation is marked by eerie grey, white and clay, porous stone. Acidic, healing water seeps up from the ground almost eerily trickling down into small streams and hissing at times of drought. Interesting animals populate the pools in larval stage and are quite a site for the curious traveller.

A short eight minute walk through open farm lands will get you there and Dominica’s Cold Soufriere is definitely a must-see for anyone interested in observing unique earth forms.

Red Rock

Shaped by ocean and rugged Caribbean weather is the unique formation of reddish, clay earth known as Red Rock. This uncommon rock formation lies on the north eastern coast in Calibishie,  and is indeed visually orgasmic. During sunrise and set, the rocks seem to glow beneath the sun’s rays, as white waves tumble violently along their edge. At dusk, the sun descends behind the mountains, shedding a soft backlight behind the cliffs, which blaze red beneath its glow.

Not only are the rocks a site to behold, but Red Rock is a great place for exploration. Short rocky trails lead to hidden rock formations, a cozy cave and an intimate white sand beach. Red Rock is just another of the many unique, natural phenomena that define the magic that is Dominica and is a must-see for anyone wishing to explore the northern end of the island.

Request to Book

Emerald Pool 

Nestled in the heart of the Morne Trois Pitons National Park is Dominica’s Emerald Pool- a cozy oasis of emerald water puddled beneath the calm cascade of an intimate waterfall. 

Emerald Pool is a rather popular site for both locals and visitors for many reasons but maybe the most apparent is it’s rumoured legend as a fountain of youth. It is said that a swim in this enchanting water adds ten years to the explorer’s life. Maybe just another island legend, but a dip in Emerald Pool is definitely a must for any visitor. 

Thick forest canopy hovers above, reflecting rays of warm sun and casting a magical, emerald hue unto the water’s surface. Dancing treetops enclose the pool as vines and clear waters trickle down the waterfall’s backdrop. 

Dominica’s Emerald Pool is indeed visually orgasmic. Filmmakers and photographers have taken advantage of it’s beauty for years, using it as a backdrop for the most spectacular photographs. It is also a favourite for destination weddings.

A short, ten minute trek through lush forest will get you there and a Dominica vacation would be incomplete without a visit to this enchanting wonder. 

Victoria Falls

Stemming from the Breakfast River in the heights of Morne Nichols is Victoria Falls – a towering cascade of calcium-rich water, which trickles from the Boiling Lake’s Valley of Desolation. On a clear day, the river is turquoise in some places and murky white in others. For this reason, Victoria is nick-named White River Falls.

A daring trek over large boulders and through river torrents will bring travellers to this awe-filled beauty. The large pool of turquoise water at the base is an excellent space for a dip, while the cool spray of the violent falls pierces the air. Victoria Falls is a perfect place to discover another one of Dominica’s unique and zen-inspiring attractions. 

Boute Sabe Beach

Boute Sabe is a cozy, black sand beach on Dominica’s east coast. This coastal beauty is a nesting ground for Leatherback and Hawksbill turtles, who come by to lay their eggs every year. 

Champagne Reef

Located on the sunny south-west coast, Champagne is a vibrant ocean habitat with a unique twist. The reef gets its name from the champagne-like bubbles which spurt up from the ocean floor. Volcanic activity in Dominica’s south is the cause of  this. Champagne offers a visual treat of marine life and cool geology for divers and snorkelers alike. A short drive from Roseau and quick walk along the beach will get you there and Champagne is a must for anyone who loves the other-worldly terrain that is the ocean.

  • Absolute highlight of our Caribbean vacations

    My girlfriend and I traveled Dominica this June for 1 week. We did not want to rent a car and had basicly no idea how to travel, get food or find the beautiful places there. But this is non of a problem if you go with Naghie. He is a terrific, relaxed and young guide who truly lives with his wife & little son the beauty of Dominica. We spend 3 days with him hiking the boiling lake, seeing Victoria Falls and Emerald Pools and snorcheling in the champange reef! Naghie picked us up in the morning and brought us back every evening. Even sitting in the car with him is amazing. He knows a lot about the history, the nature and the secret places you definitely miss if you are on your own. Dominica's nature is just a outstanding and everything you need to escape from everyday life! We can guarantee going with Naghie will be one of the best things you can do on Dominica!

  • We have had the privilege of visiting all but a few of the islands in the Caribbean. Last year we spent a day with our guide Nahgie at Just Go Dominica. It was beyond any doubt the best excursion we had ever done off a cruise ship. In fact it was so incredible that we booked the same exact cruise this year to be able to spend a second day on the island with Nahgie! We now consider him a friend and look forward to being with him again.

    Here are the things that made these two tours so special and that make this business among the best you will find:

    — Great Communication. From the first time I contacted Just Go Dominica, they were prompt and detailed in all their responses.

    —Reaonable Rates. We did a private excursion and have spent more on large group excursions. Very fair pricing. If you go I would encourage you to be sure to tip well! With the prices they charge and the service they give it’s the right thing to do.

    — The Island. Wow! Don’t be put off by the port itself. The hurricane a few years ago devastated the island and it’s obviously not recovered yet. But once you get away from the port you will be in paradise. The waterfalls, the jungle, the views and the diversity of things to do. Just amazing.

    — The Service. The personal touches of our tours were beyond wonderful. Our guide would stop and show us plants and spices and fruits, some of which we had never experienced before. He brought us to places like Titou Gorge and safely led us on an adventure we loved so much we repeated it with him this year. Hard to explain how amazing Titou Gorge is (where they filmed parts of Pirates of the Caribbean). Don’t miss it and if you are brave jump off the cliff to go in rather than just swim! Kayaking on a completely deserted Mountain Lake. Swimming in water falls with almost no one else there. Eating a homemade island lunch. Snorkeling at Champagne reef. Unreal. Finishing the day with an amazing dip in a very hot natural volcanic hot tub.

    We still feel like we have only scratched the surface of this island. But we will never forget it. My goal is to go back on a land-based trip and try out the scuba diving which is supposed to be legendary and do more exploration with our new friend.

    I hope others get to experience this beautiful island and the unparalleled service of Just Go Dominica!

  • Really, look no further!

    I'm just going to be one more person adding on to the 5 star reviews here for the one and only Nahjie (and Nicky!), and if it's not clear to you already, please understand this is the person you need to get in touch with when you come to The Nature Island that is Dominica.

    We were fortunate enough to stay in his hand built cabin on the mountainside of Laudat, where you can escape all things city, and really live in the nature. And while we did plenty of things on our own (with his input of course), the one day we did spend with him was an absolute pleasure, leaving us wanting more! He is third generation island boy, who loves the island and her beauties, and takes great joy in sharing that with others. It's hard to stress how much your trip should have this man involved in it.

    I've traveled throughout the world quite a bit, slowly and intimately, meeting and getting to know locals and travelers alike. Nahjie is one of the special ones who will without a doubt stand out.

    My only regret is not spending more time with these guys doing ALL the things, but that requires more than just 4 or 5 days on this island. I'll definitely be back for more.

  • 10 friends took a tour with Nahgi and Brany and we considered it to be a highlight of our 7 day cruise to 6 islands. We highly recommend this tour group and the Get Wet, Set Tour. We'll use Nahgi and Brany again when return to Dominica.


    John S

  • Look no further, I wish I could give 10 stars

    I am really glad we booked with Nahgi and Brany the boiling lake hike.
    It is a very challenging hike, even though we are experienced hikers.
    But our tour guide Brany was really helpful, encouraging, and very knowledgable. Talked about history, geography and the flora and fauna on the way.
    When you meet Nahgi and his team you can see on them,they love what they do, they are not after your money but genuinely want to show you their beloved country and they want you to have a good time.
    I'm so happy we came across Just Go Dominica, and please don't look further, this is your company to do an adventure with.

  • My hubby and i did the boiling lake hiking trip which was recomended by our hotel host.
    Arrangements were made the day before, we were told what time we should be ready as our tour guide would come to pick us up.
    Thus is when we met our tour guide Nahjie, He was on time and our trip started it was about 30 minutes drive from our hotel to the point of trekking.
    One important highlight here is if you're not in good shape meaning health wise this trip is not for you.
    The time spent on this trip app 8 hrs we are on the older side so it took us longer, however i must commend this young man on the great job he did in taking care of us through out the entire trip.
    NAHJIE is a true professional and very dedicated in what he does not to mention very knowledgeable in what he does as a tour guide, darn his energy is like a young stallion.
    He took time to guide and inform us of areas , plants , history etc.
    We were running out of time and i was beginning to get worried but he assured me that if night step in and we are not through he would call for back up and extra lights , that at was a relief to my being..since we are 48 and 64.
    Unfortunately we did not make it directly to the end of the lake , that where the water flows i think because it was getting late and we were more concerned getting back out to starting point, so we started trekking back out ahead of the two others.
    It rained during that time so that made it even harder ,NAHJIE did explain to us though that after Hurricane maria in 20 17 the trail was ruined and nothing was done to maintain it. I must say for me is was rough trekking.
    It was an experience and a great achievement. We did it and made it through safely with the help and guidance of this wonderful fella ( NAHJIE)
    When we finally made it back to our starting point we were happy and felt a flash of relief.
    Nahjie took us to get some thing to eat and back to the hotel.
    We also had the pleasure of riding wit him back the the airport the following day.
    My take on this review altogether is ,boiling lake is a wonder of the world I recommend you to see if you plan to visit Dominica, its a one in a life time thing to do.
    Second please do not hesitate to take that opportunity to meet and allow NAHJIE to be your guide.
    You sure would have a great time and memories of a life time.Dominica

  • The Get Set Wet tour with Nahgie was a fantastic, thrilling, and unique experience! We got to enjoy local food, snorkel on pristine coral reefs, and have great conversations with Nahgie. Nahgie was welcoming, energetic, patient, and helped us make the most of our one day on Dominica! We loved meeting his dad and getting a small sense of life on this beautiful island! Highly recommend!

Background information

Named after the Kalinago Indians who inhabited the river banks, Indian River is the largest of Dominica’s many rivers. From above, you can see this still beauty winding between the villlages of Glanvillia and Portsmouth, down to the sea. The river’s shoreline is populated by buttressed Bwa Mang Trees whose roots clutch away at the bank.

The wet mangrove is home to a myriad of wildlife – crabs, egrets, and many other birds which grace the land.

A soothing boat ride by experienced locals is the best way to traverse the river, and any visit should involve a stop at Cobra’s beach bar for a stab at the bar’s special ‘dynamite’ rum punch.

Indian River is famous for its scene in Pirates of the Caribbean, where the Calypso Voodoo house was built and still stands today. This eerie, whimsical structure, preceded by a shaky wooden staircase creeping up from the river is a site to behold.

An Indian River Tour is a great way to experience Dominica, while being transported by stories of legend and past, on a soothing journey through the coastal forest of the island.

Chaudiere is a beautiful, natural pool carved out of grey rock, fed by a calmly cascading downpour from the river above. This refreshing swimming hole emanates from the Hampstead River in the picturesque community of Bense. The pool is the perfect way to escape from the surrounding heat and be embraced by nature. Thick forest hovers above and fresh river millets can be seen jumping up the tumbling waterfall. Jump in from cliffside and be caressed by calm river torrents in yet another one of Dominica’s fresh water wonders.
Shaped by ocean and rugged Caribbean weather is the unique formation of reddish, clay earth known as Red Rocks. This uncommon rock formation lies on the north eastern coast in Calibishie, Dominica and is indeed visually orgasmic. During sunrise and set, the rocks seem to glow beneath the sun’s rays, as white waves tumble violently along their edge. At dusk, the sun descends behind the mountains, shedding a soft backlight for the rocks, which blaze red beneath its glow.

Not only are the rocks a site to behold, but a great place for quick exploration. Short rocky trails lead to hidden rock formations, a cozy cave and an intimate black sand beach. Red Rock is just another of the many unique natural phenomena that defines the magic that is Dominica and is a definite must-see for anyone wishing to explore the northern end of the island.

Request Guide

Middleham Falls 

Cascading from the chilly mountain tops of Laudat is the Middleham Falls- a 200 foot, lofty down rush of clear water. Middleham is a picturesque water feature, seemingly descending from the heavens. This tumbling falls is chaotic. Foamy water squeezes its way from towering mountain and pools violently between boulders and caves below. Middleham is a truly beautiful experience for any waterfall explorer. A somewhat challenging, uphill trek through thick, moist, forest over peeking streams and obtrusive roots will get you there. 

Middleham is a great place to submerse in Dominica’s pristine, chilly waters and join the rhythms of rapids. A daring jump over cliffside is probably the best way to experience the pool. Boasting remarkable views and ominous nature, Middleham Falls is a must-see for travellers seeking a comprehensive forest experience- hiking, swimming, cliff-jumping and off course submitting to nature beneath the roar of an elegantly imposing waterfall. 

Cladera’s Kitchen and Kayak 

Caldera’s is a community based initiative offering creole cuisine for the foreign palate. Enjoy hot tea amidst the mountans’ mist, sample impeccable local cuisine and kayak the calm lake on a slow-paced adventure of the Freshwater Lake. 

Freshwater Lake

The largest of Dominica’s four lakes, Freshwater Lake is perched just over 2500 feet above sea level, in the tranquil community of Laudat. The lake is a vast, calm settlement of emerald water, hugged by mountain and sky and inhabited by a myriad of freshwater critters. A visit to Fresh Water Lake may have you feeling like you’ve left the Caribbean. As you ascend up steep hills into the mountains, the air gets lighter and colder. The lake has a chilly ambience, is misty and often times unbearably cold at night for locals.

It is the perfect place for a snuggle at night and of course for adventure at day. One can enjoy a relaxing kayak across the lake or a soothing row boat ride. As boats float silently above, nature’s sounds echo across the expanse and birds and butterflies flutter by the islands which dot the water.

In the surrounding mountains is a loop trail which brings hikers around the lake from above. Spectacular 360 degree views await any hiker and the lush forest is a haven for nature lovers.

A ten minute drive from Laudat will get you there, and the extreme tranquility and ambiance of the lake will definitely keep you. Dominica’s Freshwater Lake is another must-do for anyone on a Dominica vacation.

Boeri Lake

Experience extreme zen at Dominica’s Boeri Lake. This peaceful, resting lake is hugged by mountains all round and roofed by vast sky and clouds. Silence is the attraction of the Boeri Lake which makes it a favourite for yogis and zen chasers. Village legend has it that this is the ideal place to talk to your God.

Crystal waters drip from hanging moss, beneath the humid forest and every breath taken is filled with fresh mountain top air. A forty-five minute hike up dense forest will get you there, and as you arrive out of breath, the tranquil space regulates even the most out-of-breath hiker. Boeri Lake is a peaceful, natural wonder which begs visitors to submit to the imposing silence and zen of another one of Dominica’s beauties.

    Thus is when we met our tour guide Nahjie, He was on time and our trip started it was about 30 minutes drive from our hotel to the point of trekking.
    One important highlight here is if you're not in good shape meaning health wise this trip is not for you.
    The time spent on this trip app 8 hrs we are on the older side so it took us longer, however i must commend this young man on the great job he did in taking care of us through out the entire trip.
    NAHJIE is a true professional and very dedicated in what he does not to mention very knowledgeable in what he does as a tour guide, darn his energy is like a young stallion.
    He took time to guide and inform us of areas , plants , history etc.
    We were running out of time and i was beginning to get worried but he assured me that if night step in and we are not through he would call for back up and extra lights , that at was a relief to my being..since we are 48 and 64.
    Unfortunately we did not make it directly to the end of the lake , that where the water flows i think because it was getting late and we were more concerned getting back out to starting point, so we started trekking back out ahead of the two others.
    It rained during that time so that made it even harder ,NAHJIE did explain to us though that after Hurricane maria in 20 17 the trail was ruined and nothing was done to maintain it. I must say for me is was rough trekking.
    It was an experience and a great achievement. We did it and made it through safely with the help and guidance of this wonderful fella ( NAHJIE)
    When we finally made it back to our starting point we were happy and felt a flash of relief.
    Nahjie took us to get some thing to eat and back to the hotel.
    We also had the pleasure of riding wit him back the the airport the following day.
    My take on this review altogether is ,boiling lake is a wonder of the world I recommend you to see if you plan to visit Dominica, its a one in a life time thing to do.
    Second please do not hesitate to take that opportunity to meet and allow NAHJIE to be your guide.
    You sure would have a great time and memories of a life time.Dominica

  • The Get Set Wet tour with Nahgie was a fantastic, thrilling, and unique experience! We got to enjoy local food, snorkel on pristine coral reefs, and have great conversations with Nahgie. Nahgie was welcoming, energetic, patient, and helped us make the most of our one day on Dominica! We loved meeting his dad and getting a small sense of life on this beautiful island! Highly recommend!

  • Absolute highlight of our Caribbean vacations

    My girlfriend and I traveled Dominica this June for 1 week. We did not want to rent a car and had basicly no idea how to travel, get food or find the beautiful places there. But this is non of a problem if you go with Naghie. He is a terrific, relaxed and young guide who truly lives with his wife & little son the beauty of Dominica. We spend 3 days with him hiking the boiling lake, seeing Victoria Falls and Emerald Pools and snorcheling in the champange reef! Naghie picked us up in the morning and brought us back every evening. Even sitting in the car with him is amazing. He knows a lot about the history, the nature and the secret places you definitely miss if you are on your own. Dominica's nature is just a outstanding and everything you need to escape from everyday life! We can guarantee going with Naghie will be one of the best things you can do on Dominica!

  • 10 friends took a tour with Nahgi and Brany and we considered it to be a highlight of our 7 day cruise to 6 islands. We highly recommend this tour group and the Get Wet, Set Tour. We'll use Nahgi and Brany again when return to Dominica.
