South of Portsmouth at the southern end of Prince Rupert Bay, the snorkeling near Pointe Ronde is known for its sulpher springs within a volcanic crater. These sulpher springs produce plenty of bubbles and are rimmed by coral reefs. After a long day of snorkeling at Pointe Ronde on Dominica, try grabbing a cool drink at Chez La Doudou Beach Bar in Salisbury Beach, Papillote Rainforest Restaurant near Wotten Waven or Rogers Bar in Scotts Head.
To reach the snorkeling on Dominica by air, fly into Melville Hall International Airport (DOM), which is located east of Portsmouth and northeast of the, capital Roseau River.
In addition, there is a ferry called L'Express de Iles that interconnects Dominica, Guadeloupe, Martinique and St Lucia. While snorkeling on Dominica, there are over 200 fish species including batfish, squid, frogfish, seahorses, flying gurnards, moray eels, stingrays, sea turtles and whales among the hard and soft corals with plenty of sea fans. The best snorkeling in Dominica is from May to July for high water clarity and calm surf. If you are looking for a good snorkeling tour or snorkel gear, you can try checking out either Cabrits Dive Centre in Portsmouth or Dive Dominica in Rosseau. As a side note, keep in mind that none of the Dominica snorkeling dive sites are particularly good for beginners or young children.
Overall, Pointe Ronde is the 6th most popular snorkel dive spot of all 11 snorkeling dives in Dominica.
