Silversea Luxury Cruises To Roseau

Roseau

Although it's one of the smallest capitals in the Caribbean, Roseau has the highest concentration of inhabitants of any town in the eastern Caribbean. Caribbean vernacular architecture and a bustling marketplace transport visitors back in time. Although you can walk the entire town in about an hour, you'll get a much better feel for the place on a leisurely stroll. For some years now, the Society for Historical Architectural Preservation and Enhancement (SHAPE) has organized programs and projects to preserve the city's architectural heritage. View more

Several interesting buildings have already been restored. Lilac House, on Kennedy Avenue, has three types of gingerbread fretwork, latticed verandah railings, and heavy hurricane shutters. The J.W. Edwards Building, at the corner of Old and King George V sreets, has a stone base and a wooden second-floor gallery. The Old Market Plaza is the center of Roseau's historic district, which was laid out by the French on a radial plan rather than a grid, so streets such as Hanover, King George V, and Old radiate from this area. South of the marketplace is the Fort Young Hotel, built as a British fort in the 18th century; the nearby statehouse, public library, and Anglican cathedral are also worth a visit. New developments at the bay front on Dame M.E. Charles Boulevard have brightened up the waterfront.

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.


Please note: This tour involves a minimal amount of walking, and is suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Guests are advised to wear lightweight, comfortable clothing, and bring sunscreen, a hat and sunglasses from the ship. Guests opting to swim in the pool at Hibiscus Falls should bring a swimsuit and towel from the ship. The road surfaces in Dominica are bumpy in some areas and wind through the hillsides. A minimum number of guests per guide are required for operation of this tour.

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. Enjoy a freshly harvested and prepared drink during the estate orientation as you learn about slave labor, stone terraces, weather and windbreak techniques required for successful endeavors growing coffee and cocoa crops.


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.


Please note: This tour involves minimal to moderate activity and is suitable for guests with limited mobility. Guests who utilise a wheelchair must be capable of transferring from the chair to the bus with 2-3 steps to negotiate and minimal assistance as the restrooms at the plantation are not wheelchair accessible. We suggest guests dress in lightweight seasonal clothing and wear flat, walking shoes and sun protection.

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, then begin your educational and interactive tour with a guided stroll about the estate's ruins and grounds. Afterward, harvest some cocoa pods from a tree and observe the fermenting, drying, roasting and grinding processes.


Chocolate-Making Demonstration and Tasting

Next, proceed to the estate's kitchen. Here, utilise Bois Cotlette's couverture blocks to temper, pour and mould their special dark chocolate into the estate's signature candies. In addition, use the chocolate flavour wheels to incorporate different flavours, including sea salt, cocoa nibs, bacon and spicy peppers, into the chocolate. A tour and tasting of Bois Cotlette chocolates, accompanied by freshly-made Bois Cotlette juices and rum punch, is included. Following your visit, re-board your coach and commence the approximately 30-minute drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves a minimal amount of walking for approximately 150 yards (about 137 metres), at times over uneven and cobblestone surfaces, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach. This tour is not suitable for guests with limited mobility and guests who utilise a wheelchair. Lightweight, comfortable clothing with flat, closed-toe walking shoes and sun protection are recommended. Guests must be at least six years old to participate on this tour.

Upon arrival at the world-famous Emerald Pool, located in the Morne Trois Piton National Park, take a short, guided walk through the rainforest.


Rainforest Walk, Waterfall Swimming and Sulphur Pools

Stroll along manicured rainforest paths until you reach the waterfall site. Observe the waterfall cascading approximately 40 feet (about 12 metres) over the fern-covered cliff, and marvel how the ferns give the cascading waterfall its emerald hue. Take an invigorating swim in the crisp, clean waters that collect in the basin of the falls, then proceed to Dominica's traditional sulphur pools. Here, naturally flowing, hot sulphur waters from the island's active volcanic complex are harnessed into soaking pools that are renowned for their therapeutic properties. During your soothing and relaxing soak, enjoy the beauty and serenity of your surrounds. At the conclusion of your visit, re-board your coach and commence the short drive back to the pier.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of walking, with a few steps to negotiate to get on/off the coach, and access the Emerald Pool and waterfall.

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.


Please note: This tour involves a moderate amount of activity and is recommended for guests that are in good physical condition and know how to swim. This tour is not suitable for pregnant women, guests with back or neck problems, or limited mobility or those who utilise a wheelchair. Participants must hold on to both handles of their tubes at all times and wear the helmet provided. This tour may include a few rapids. Wear a swimsuit under a cover-up and rubber-soled shoes that may get wet and bring a towel and protection from the sun. Operation of this tour is dependent upon river conditions. Commentary is generally not provided during the transfer to-and-from the river.

With your legs braced against the waterfall wall, feel the pure, cold water cascading around you as you slowly make your descent. Soft green light filters down the cliff walls of this hidden gorge to the deep, pristine pool waiting far down in the heart of the river.

Whale and Dolphin Adventure Sightings

Discover some of nature's most amazing mammals from a unique perspective during this half-day catamaran 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.
