Champagne Bubbles (A Six-Month Adventure to Dominica, Post 3)

Being a person who much prefers land to water when back in England, snorkeling is not something that I am used to!

My first snorkeling trip was at Champagne Reef, it’s literally on our doorstep maybe a 10-15 minute walk from Pointe Michel.

Mom had the patience of a saint, life vest on just in case (it’s been a long while since I’ve dipped my toes in the water!). Our masks were on; we were inching further into the glorious warm water with the mantra from Finding Nemo in my head “Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming”.

Once my nerves had passed, I started to pay attention to where I actually was; there were fish everywhere and loads of bubbles.

The bubbles are awesome; I could swim back and forth through them all day long.

Little did I know, the bubbles are there because of the volcanic activity that has happened on the island; the geothermal activity beneath the reef causes pockets of gas to escape in the form of bubbles – pretty cool!

If you’ve work stress or things going on in your personal life, snorkeling at Champagne or anywhere in Dominica is the key to relaxation.
