Dive Fest is the longest running Scuba Diving Festival in the Caribbean. Dive Fest 2013 will be the 20th consecutive year that the Dominica Watersports Association has presented this event. Click here for full schedule of events.

Dive Fest 2010 was bigger and better than ever. It was the 17th consecutive year of Dive Fest and we were pleased to see host the Scubaradio Mermaids who were sponsored by Swiss Army/Victorinox and Jewellers International.

  • Sealife Cameras debuted their new underwater cameras, giving divers the chance to test the cameras out and to take part in photo shoots and a “Best of Week” competition. The first-ever Mermaid photo competition was a big hit!!
  • Dive Training sent down two photographers, Barry and Ruth Guimbellot, who put on seminars and workshops on both underwater.
  • Scuba Radio broadcast Dive Fest over two weekends


Along with these events for divers, there was plenty of excitement for non divers too! Wine and Cheese Sunset Cruises, Happy Hour dances, Traditional Boat Races and whale watching to name a few.
