The location in Loubiere is within walking distance of the city of Roseau and is a prime site for marine tourism in the south of the island. The Property also has an operating bar and restaurant.

Our team will be able to visit and assess businesses safety protocols, provide on-site training, conduct evacuation drills, certify, implement and maintain emergency management systems including evacuation procedures.

Whale watching is the fastest growing tourism activity on the island with regular increases every season. It is very popular with both cruise and stay over visitors. The implementation of infrastructure to safely and comfortably accommodate these clients will be in place. Whale watching operations on the island enjoy a 90% success rate and cetaceans (whales and dolphins) are sighted all year round. Dominica has received mounting recognition as an ideal destination for the viewing of social elements of Sperm Whales. The chance to see the relations of females, males, juveniles and young calves may be unparalleled anywhere else in the world, according to findings from the Caribbean Tourism Organization Eco Tourism Conference.
