Silversea Luxury Cruises To ROSEAU

ROSEAU

Raise a glass to the immaculate surroundings of Roseau, where beautiful beaches - alive with fine bubbles fizzing upwards from the geothermal activity below - wait for you. Dive into extraordinary snorkelling and diving experiences, amongst thriving marine life, active corals and live volcanoes concealed below the waves. With attractive volcanic sands to relax on, and glorious, jungled mountains to explore, Roseau is an intoxicating welcome to Dominica's Caribbean island appeal. View more

Nestled on the west coast, Roseau is the island’s capital and a city surrounded by sprawling banana plantations, and cocoa fields. First taken by the French, then the British, a strong colonial imprint mingles with the local flare. Nowadays Old Market Square is crammed with locals trading huge vegetables, colourful fruits and handmade jewellery - but the square has a darker past, and was the centre of the island's slave-trade. Head up to the former British fort, which offers a panoramic, postcard-perfect view from the top, of Roseau and the lush green mountains behind. The large botanical gardens offer more magnificent views, and you can walk amongst thriving tropical plant life, as parrots flutter, and add splashes of colour to the greenery. The rainforest around the city conceals rich wildlife and waterfalls spilling into splash pools, while plantations give a taste of the island's heritage. You can also discover the second-largest hot spring in the world - Boiling Lake - which brews with angry volcanic activity in the steamy Morne Trois Pitons National Park. The hiking and snorkelling can take its strain - so simmer away any stiffness in a mineral-rich hot pool, or by indulging in a rum punch or two.

Excursions in ROSEAU

Accessible Dominica & Rainforest Drive

Discover why Dominica is known as the 'Nature Island of the Caribbean' during this picturesque, half-day sightseeing excursion.


Morne Bruce View Point

Depart the pier for the brief drive to the historic Morne Bruce view point. Upon arrival, take in splendid views and photo opportunities of the town of Roseau, and Dominica's towering cliffs and lush rainforest. Leaving Morne Bruce, re-board your coach and proceed to the Botanical Gardens.


Botanical Gardens and Rainforest Drive

During your stop at the lush Botanical Gardens, see the endangered Sissereau and Jaco parrots in protective cages, along with many large trees, exotic flowers and tropical plants. From here, your drive continues towards the interior of Dominica and a visit to Hibiscus Falls. En route, pass by the tropical rainforest and plantations with mango, banana, avocado and cacao trees.


Hibiscus Falls

Upon arrival at Hibiscus Falls, take an easy, 30-yard (27-metre) stroll to the scenic viewpoint at this waterfall. Here, you can photograph your beautiful surroundings while snacking on local seasonal fruits served with complimentary rum punch or fruit juice. You may also opt to take a short walk down some steps to the pool for a quick dip in the refreshing waterfall. Afterward, drive through the beautiful green valleys en route to the pier.

Bois Cotlette Estate: Heritage Tour

Prepare for an in depth tour of Bois Cotlette during your visit to this working plantation and the oldest surviving estate on Dominica.

Bois Cotlette

Depart the pier for a scenic, approximately 30-minute drive to Bois Cotlette. Dating from the early years of French settlement in the 1720's, Bois Cotlette is the oldest surviving estate on Dominica and the subject of intense research by historians and archaeologists. Enjoy a freshly harvested and prepared drink during the estate orientation as you learn about slave labor, stone terraces, and other features of a Caribbean colonial plantation while preparing to embark on a fact finding mission to date the ruins.


Estate Tour

On the Heritage Tour, you get a chance to enjoy the Estates grounds at a relaxed pace in a pristine and tranquil setting. Uncover clues to the property's origins and learn why expert historians, too, are so enamoured with Bois Cotlette.

As you delve into the plantation history, three themes emerge. First is a story of people. Learn about the social structure of the owner/planter class, as well as life as a slave inhabitant in the late 1700's and turn of the century at Bois Cotlette. The second is a theme of technology. Windmills, aqueducts, and fresh water capture systems demonstrate an anachronistic view of a time period thought to be less advanced. Thirdly, we will focus on the commercial crops (coffee, sugar, cocoa, and citrus), with demonstrations, that define the estates existence.

Planter's Herb Garden and Refreshments

You will have an opportunity to enjoy authentic creole snacks and refreshments, and to stroll through the Planter's herb garden located just south of the Maison.

Following your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 30-minute drive back to the pier.

Chocolate Experience at Bois Cotlette

Enjoy a taste of Caribbean chocolate in Dominica during this interactive, half-day excursion to Bois Cotlette.

Bois Cotlette

Depart the pier for the scenic, approximately 30-minute drive to Bois Cotlette, the oldest surviving estate on Dominica. With a 290-year history of producing cocoa, coffee and sugar cane, the estate today continues the processing of cocoa from beans into dark chocolate bars and candies.

Estate Tour

Upon arrival, receive a welcome beverage and begin your educational and interactive tour with a guided stroll about the estate's ruins and grounds. Along the way, a harvested cocoa pod will give us a chance to taste the raw bean and then observe and taste the bean as the flavour evolves during the fermenting, drying, roasting and grinding processes.


Chocolate-Making Demonstration and Tasting

Next, we will utilise Bois Cotlette's couverture blocks to temper, pour and mould their special dark chocolate into the estate's signature candies. In addition, chocolate flavour wheels will be used to help you understand and describe the different flavours that you are likely to experience when sampling fine flavour dark chocolate. A tasting of Bois Cotlette chocolates, accompanied by freshly-made Bois Cotlette juices and rum, is included. Following your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 30-minute drive back to the pier.

During your visit, you are invited to take an invigorating swim in the crisp, clean waters that collect in the basin of the falls.


Mero Beach, Volcanic Sand, Caribbean Sea, Swimming, Beachcombing

Next, re-board your coach and head to Mero Beach, Dominica's iconic, volcanic-sand beach. Upon arrival, some free time is made available to relax and unwind amidst your idyllic surrounds, take a leisurely stroll on the beach, and/or swim in the warm, inviting, crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean Sea. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 30-minute drive back to the pier.

River Tubing Adventure

Experience the scenic beauty and excitement of the largest and longest river in Dominica during this memorable river-tubing excursion.


Depart the pier for the scenic, approximate 30-minute drive through the Dominican capital of Roseau en route to the lush Layou Valley then proceed to the Layou River Gorge. Upon arrival, receive an orientation and safety briefing, wear your helmet and life-jacket and commence your guided river-tubing adventure.


Layou River Float

As you float down-river, discover Nature Island, which features a lush tropical rainforest, along with magnificent rock formations, wonderful flora and fauna, a spectacular mountain range, and cliffs and valleys. Feel the changing pace of the meandering and twisting Layou River as it descends into calm pools interspersed with the excitement of bubbling rapids.


At the conclusion of your river-tubing adventure, relax with a refreshing drink at the Layou Tourism Facility. Changing rooms are available for you to get back into your dry clothes before transferring back to the pier.

Whale and Dolphin Adventure Sightings

Discover some of nature's most amazing mammals from a unique perspective during this boat excursion in search of whales and dolphins.


Depart the pier for the brief stroll to your awaiting vessel. Upon arrival, receive your safety and tour instructions before setting out for the open waters. Of the 30 or more species of whales and dolphins found in the Caribbean, more than half can be found in the waters surrounding Dominica. Your captain pauses every three miles (about 4.8 kilometres) or 15 minutes so a hydrophone may be submersed to listen for the 'clicking' of sperm whales and the 'whistling' of dolphins.


During these stops, take in distant island views while your on-board guide offers information about the whales, dolphins, and wildlife. If a spout or a pod is sighted or detected, the captain manoeuvres the vessel so you can see the animals. Since their welfare is of paramount importance, guidelines set up by the International Fund for Animal Welfare are strictly followed. Fruit juice and a rum punch are served during the return ride to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves a minimal amount of walking. Guests must be able to walk and manoeuvre in and out of the boat, and participants with limited mobility may be accommodated. Although marine life can be observed on most outings, sightings cannot be guaranteed. Participation is very limited; we suggest you book in advance to avoid disappointment.
