This location has a breathtaking experience, as you swim into a small opening, above you are large mountainous rocks which cast a darkened light gorge, while below you swim, in the cold frigid waters of the spring for about 300 feet until you reach an entrance into a cave like room. Once reaching this room, you are guided back the... More

A refreshing swim after a long day of hiking. We decided to get a guide but it isn't necessary. The waterfalls are not big but there are interesting formations and it is just plain fun to swim in the pools and against the current. Only disappointment is that the guide has not yet to send the pictures he took -... More

We had been scuba diving for 6 days and wanted to enjoy a few sights on Dominica before our flight home the next day so we hired a driver to take us around the island. Our first stop was Titou Gorge, a narrow defile through which a robust stream flows. From the parking area there are steps down to the... More

This is a must while visiting Dominica. The ride up to the gorge doesn't take long but get ready to get wet because it's always raining. Exploring the gorge seems like a visit to another world. The swim up isn't for the physically challenged, it's quite a swim but well worth it.

Just a short walk and swim through the gorge to see the small waterfalls. Very neat to see the gorge that was carved out.

We went to the Gorge as a part of a tour from the cruise ship I was on. It was simply gorgeous - it was the best stop on the tour. First, let me tell you - the water is COLD!! They call it "refreshing," which is cute. However, once you're in for a few minutes, you get used to... More

We did the Boiling Lake hike on our own (separate review), then stopped at the Titou Gorge to cool off and clean up while awaiting our driver to pick us up. We used but did not pay for a life preserver and nobody said anything. Apparently someone drowned there a few years ago so I think they are concerned about... More

It is an easy hike to the gorge where you'll find an exhilarating experience waiting for you. Swim up the gorge into the cave where you'll find a waterfall. Such a unique and tranquil setting.

We ended up at the gorge after hiking to Boiling Lake and this was the perfect finale!!! Once you arrive, you have nothing to pay (except if you want to hire a life jacket) and you can enjoy Nature! I am not a strong swinner and was ok on my own to reach the second fall. Hope you will like... More

So glad our trip a able to swim round Dominica took us here. Not expecting to be able to swim here so it was a pleasant and exciting surprise. Cool water that looked like an infinity pool, a warm mini waterfall, a swim through a narrow gorge and entering a lake with a huge waterfall tumbling down over the rocks.... More
