Indian River, Dominica
(4.1/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Listen to the sound of birds joyfully singing and immerse yourself in the tranquillity of calm waters and the surrounding dense green jungle as you sail up Dominica's Indian River. Take an Indian riverboat ride upstream, a popular activity in the area. Your guide educates you about the local animal and plant life as you make your way to the head of the river to enjoy a refreshing drink. You may feel a sense of familiarity as this is the shooting location for some scenes of the motion picture Pirates of the Caribbean. See if you can identify some scenes from the movie.

  • We have searched a guide at the bridge, us up rowing to the river. There is a bridge where one is held up by guides at the mouth of the Indian River. These are identified by the pink cards. We have Leo the lion met and after it was sympathetic to us and hinauf rowing the flow not very intrusive, it can be. He told us the flora and fauna, and the locations of Pirates of the Caribbean. Then he offered a trip to the largest waterfall of the island us including a short hike through a nature trail through the trees and plants of the island. Demand the best for him and you will have a great day with a little pushy Guide!
