The only way to see Titou Gorge is by canyoning with Extreme Dominica. Hands down the best thing we did while we were in Dominica. Make sure you ask to have Nahjie as your guide. Titou Gorge is amazing. It truly looks like it is out of a picture book or created by a computer. Can't describe it, you just... More

We stopped here on one of our cruises and friends signed us up to do this and it was by far one of the coolest thing's we've done. The water is cold (but refreshing!) and the swim down the gorge is so beautiful! At the end (just before the waterfall) is a large calm pool and when you look up... More

This is a truly rare experience. If you have an ounce of adventure in you, you should do this. The water was pretty chilly, and the entrance is very scary to children, so lead the way Dad! The swim to the first 4 foot falls takes less than 5 minutes. We were unable to climb that first falls due to... More

Well worth the stop - though you need to be a good swimmer as it is a long swim down a deep gorge. The reward at the end though is something else & it makes a good finish to the boiling lake trek

This is an incredible gorge that you must swim into. Fair warning: the water is freezing and the current is swift - especially if it's been raining - so be sure to use a float, no matter how strong a swimmer you are. It will be worth it when you arrive at a gorgeous (ha ha) waterfall into the grotto.... More

LOVED Titou Gorge! A hike of a few hundred yards on dirt & rock paths takes you to the entrance to the gorge. An easy and fun trail walk (barely a "hike") for most, but not for people who would have trouble with walking a few hundred yards on a dirt/rock fire road or trail. The water in the gorge... More

when i could not feel my legs after hiking boiling lake, this was my lifesaver. it felt amazing to swim in the cold water and the waterfall was stunning. i did not do any fancy climbing, just relaxed and enjoyed the view. do not skip this. i repeat, do not skip this.

Perfect for after the boiling lake hike. Mask, snorkel and a dry bag for valuables and flotation worked great. Don't forget to look up and then climb to the 2nd fall.

My husband, mother in law, father in law, and I came to the gorge on an excursion from a HAL ship. The ride was pretty smooth and the walk up to the gorge was easy ( a little uneven but do-able for those who are able to walk on their own). When we got to the top it didn't seem... More

absolutely fantastic. One of the locations for the Pirates of the Caribbean films. You swim through a narrow gorge with steep walls on both sides to a small waterfall.
