We did the Wet tour in a group of 6. We had a great time. We enjoyed Champagne Reef for the coral and the bubbles, but we didn't see that many exciting fish. The water falls and hot springs were great and the gorge was fun, reminded me of Archeron river in Greece. This was by far the best shore excusion we did and we cannot stop raving about the things we saw on Dominica. The Hercules beetle, the coffee, the bananas, the papayas, the cocoa, the views, the rain forest.. Thanks Levi, it was brilliant. You showed us how wonderful Dominica is.

We arrived on our cruise ship and Levi was there to meet us (pre booked). First we went to Champagne Reef where Levi led the way, showing us the reef and pointing out the various fish. Then we took a trip to the Gorge, at this stop Levi managed our swim so that our group got the very best out the experience ( just us). This was followed by a trip to Trafalgar Falls and a rest in the hot spring pools.
Levi was a perfect host, treating us to an almost perfect day ( it did rain though).
We would recommend this guide to anyone - one of the best days on an island that we have had. Great memories.

My husband and I visited Dominica on a cruise on March 4, Mardi Gras or Carnival in Dominica. Dominica is known for its natural beauty, so we wanted to experience that. Originally, I wanted a tour that included a hike to Middleham Falls, but was unable to interest enough people on our Cruise Critic roll call to meet the minimum requirement. We settled on the Roseau Valley Treasures Tour (the wet tour) with Bumpiing Tours. Levi was very prompt and helpful in answering my emails. There were quite a few people taking the tour, but we were split into vans with about 12 people each. We first went to Champagne Reef for snorkeling. We walked a little way along the rocky coast to the snorkeling spot. There were several groups there, and it was a bit disorganized getting in the water. It's very rocky, and guides help walk you down a rubber mat into the water. Each group also has a snorkeling guide that was great at pointing out fish and coral. We saw many different fish and corals. I had my doubts about the champagne part of the reef - all I saw were bubbles from people breathing or splashing. Near the end of our snorkeling, we came into an area where the water was noticeably warmer and there were bubbles (like champagne bubbles) everywhere, coming up from the sea floor. It was really neat. Our guide scooped up some water from a vent into our hands, and it was quite warm. It was a great snorkeling spot. My only complaint was getting stung by sea fleas or plankton, depending on who you asked. It was annoying at the time, but later I had red bumps on my arms and legs that were itchy for a couple days. They eventually faded away. Our next stop was Titou Gorge. We walked about 10 minutes to the beginning of the gorge. Everyone is given a flotation belt. The gorge is a stream through a steep stone gorge that you swim upstream into. It was featured in Pirates of the Caribbean 2 which we watched just before coming to prepare ourselves. It was really cool. At the end, you can climb up a bit of a waterfall and jump back into the stream. Our third stop was Trafalgar Falls. There is a restaurant and rest room at the visitor center. It was about a 5-10 minute walk to the platform overlook. There are actually two waterfalls which are very pretty. The best part is continuing on the path past the platform down to a warm, thermal stream. You can climb down the rocks and boulders and get in the warm water. Right near the warm stream is the cool stream coming from the waterfalls. We got back to Roseau in time to see the end of the afternoon Carnival celebration. It might have been fun to see more, but I think the party really happens at night after the cruise ship left. Our tour was great, and we did get wet three times. Dominica is a beautiful, lush, natural island. This tour showed us some of the highlights, and I hope to see more in the future.

What can I say that hasn't already been said?! My best friend had told me she didn't know why the cruise ships stop at Dominica...! How wrong she was! It is such a beautiful island and made all the better under the guide and company of Levi! He is such a genuinely lovely, caring, funny, knowledgeable and talented guy! DO NOT HESITATE TO BOOK A TOUR WITH HIM! We did the Casey's 3 Waters Wet Tours - it was a wonderful experience to see the unusual volcanic bubbles at Champagne Reef, Titou Gorge was a beautiful experience and Levi was very impressive (!!!), Trafalgar Falls are stunning and the hot springs were awesome! We were not rushed at any time and just lapped up the beauty.

Levi did a fab job also, of managing to get to all the places either before or after the cruise ship tours, so we were never inundated with other visitors spoiling it for us - yet another reason to book direct with Bumpiing and not go with P&O!!!

Thanks again so much Levi for making such wonderful memories of your beautiful island - we will be back and booking again one day.....! :-)

We enjoyed the "Wet Tour" with Levi during our cruise ship stop in Dominica. All the reviews we read on TA and Cruise Critic were spot-on. Levi is so warm and personable, and his passion for his island comes through in everything he does. We had some in our group that aren't comfortable in the water. Levi was so patient with them and never left their side. He made sure they were at ease the whole time.

As we would drive along, Levi would point out various sites, and sometimes even pull over and retrieve something from the ground, be it a nut of some kind, a fruit, etc. to show us what Dominica has to offer. We would highly recommend this tour, and have every intention of booking with Bumpiing Tours again if we visit Dominica in the future.

The sites on the island were really beautiful - what a lush tropical paradise! We visited Champagne Reef, Titou Gorge, & Trafalgar Falls. Spectacular!
