This was a lovely experience, swimming at the base of the gorge to where some scenes of Pirates of the Caribbean was filmed. Then on to the waterfall itself. The force of the waterfall is great but our guide who swam with us gave us...More
The Titou Gorge is a must see while on Dominica. The river that flows from the gorge is quite cool, and the falls in the rear make for great photos. It is also one of the many places on Dominica that the Disney movie Pirates...More
It's now required to wear a life jacket or float belt (according to our guide who's been going there for years, this is brand new), and you're charged 5 EC. They have changing rooms available and they watch your bags for you.

First of all, the water is ice cold! But once in (well it stays pretty cold) you kind of forget about that. The water is too deep to touch but they provide everyone with a life jacket/belt. This helps a lot! About 15 ft from...More
I had not researched this site and was sent there by the nice people at my hotel. Wow. Just wow. I had no idea it would be so very beautiful, romanic and special. What a spot. Not to be missed. It's not too difficult a...More
We recently visited Titou Gorge during a tour of Dominica. It is an amazing place. The water is cold (but tolerable) but it is worth it for the swim. The water is very clear and the gorge is beautiful. We swam to the waterfall and...More
A must stop after the Boiling Lake hike! The swim back is very relaxing, with the current from the fall carrying you! Be sure to rent a float (available at the entrance) if you're not a very good swimmer since there's no place to rest
Some scenes of Pirates of the Caribbean where film here and swimming in the gorge to see the very impressive internal waterfall is a very good experience. Swimming through the narrow gorge to reach the waterfall. Really liked it

We also used a Tillak Kiwanda Dry Bag and took our valuables in the water with us. As an added precaution, I also put our phones, keys, money and credit cards in an additional Pelican box inside the dry bag. Be sure to roll the bag at least 3 times to ensure a good seal. I also kept some air in the bag so that it would float on top the water. Nothing ever got wet and we never had to worry about our stuff getting stolen. NOTE: You cannot submerge the bag otherwise it will get wet inside, the front little zipper pocket is not waterproof, I would get a light color as black absorbs heat making the bag hot inside which is bad for electronics also if you get yellow it acts as a flag so boaters can see you easier.
We also brought a cheap $10 sports equipment net for carrying our snorkel gear in. It doubled as a sandal bag we could take in the water with us so we didn't have to worry about someone stealing our sandals (it has happened before).
