Get the blood flowing and the adrenaline pumping with a wet and wild kayak adventure. Our next recommended Dominica shore excursion is a River to Ocean Kayaking Adventure that departs straight from your cruise ship and takes roughly 3 hours. Set off along the Layou River as the gentle water laps against the side of your state-of-the-art kayak. As you paddle down the river brace yourself from some small rapids and a whole lot of fun. When you near the fishing village of Layou the stunning entrance to the Caribbean sea approaches. Fishing boats pass with fisherman showing off their best catch of the day with magnificent views as their backdrop. Where the sea meets the river plunge into the ocean for a revitalising swim. Then after a short paddle back from your starting point a delicious glass of rum punch awaits you complemented by some fantastic locally prepared cuisine. A wonderful day, well spent.

This 3 hour Dominica shore excursion will have your heart racing in no time! First, head to the rainforest where your adventure begins. Swing on ropes from tree to tree like a monkey landing on the suspended platforms. Test your skills on the Indiana Bridge, Monkey Bridge and Duck Walk.

Once you have crossed that off your bucket list, enjoy a scenic zipline across the Layou River high above the glistening water before returning back with plenty of time to recover those shaky sea legs.
